The Activator Method

A chiropractic technique that is gentle and safe for all ages which uses light pressure.

Patient Benefits

"The Activator" is a low-force technique used to provide a chiropractic adjustment. It is quite gentle, which makes it a perfect option for anyone.


Less Tension

If a you often tense up while being adjusted, an adjustment with the Activator method may be more successful.


No Twists

No need for twisting or turning the body or neck.


Small Area

It be applied to a very small area, such as a single vertebra, wrists, ribs, the shoulder blades and bones of the skull can be gently shifted to improve flow of nerves.

An Activator tool is a small rubber-tipped instrument that delivers a light force to doctor’s specific locations on your spine or any joint, realigning the bones and relieving pain and spasm.

There are two advantages:

Faster: The body’s muscles are less likely to tense in response and resist the treatment which facilitates the treatment’s effectiveness.

Controlled force: The applied force is localized and does not put the joint in any compromised positions, such as bending or twisting.

By using an analysis of your leg lengths, we can determine the areas in your body that need to be adjusted besides the spine.

Other areas and joints that may be adjusted including feet, knees, elbows, shoulders, and even your jaw. Once we realign the bones and joints stress is reduced in the area which improves motion, reduces pain and restores function.

This was first developed as an alternative to manual chiropractic in the 1960s. Even though manual chiropractic adjustments are very safe and effective, people are happy to know there is an alternative. It is even safe for people who have osteoporosis and may not be able to tolerate a manual adjustment.


Chiropractic adjustments are helpful for many conditions in addition to spinal pain, including sciatica, headaches, shoulder pain, disc problems, vertigo, ear infections and carpal tunnel.
