The Activator Method

activator method 1Activator Method is a chiropractic technique which can manipulate the spine as well as the extremities. The activator is a small handheld spring-loaded instrument which delivers an impulse to the spine and is considered a gentler technique and minimizes muscle guarding.

Activator Method

This assessment of the spine involves comparing leg lengths. Often one leg will seem to be shorter than the other. Then we carry out a series of muscle tests such by having the patient perform certain movements that isolate the muscles attached to specific vertebrae. If the leg lengths differ, then that indicates that the particular area is restricted.

The Activator Methods technique can be used on every age group but can be especially beneficial with babies, kids, the elderly and people with osteoporosis.
