Patients of all ages, children to elderly, benefit from the Activator adjustment. Children, who have trouble being still, find this method especially effective. The adjustment is so quick and gentle they frequently look forward to their next visit.
Older patients, or patients with osteoporosis, arthritis, or other bone-weakening conditions find Activator to be helpful and comfortable.
The Activator Method® is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.
The Activator V is the world’s first and finest cordless adjusting instrument. The instrument has variable force settings that provide a thrust that is more comfortable for the patient and provides a consistent level of thrust.
Activator Management Protocol
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique, developed by Arlan Fuhr, DC, in 1967, uses a handheld
instrument with a stylus to deliver a specific, high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust for the correction
of vertebral subluxation. Vertebral subluxation is detected using a series of maneuvers: pressure testing, isolation testing, and stress testing.
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique’s mechanical force, manually-assisted adjusting instrument is recognized and covered by Medicare.
