Activator

This technique is performed using a small spring-loaded instrument. This instrument is designed to correct dysfunctional spinal segments by providing a focused thrust directly into the segment.

Our activator device is more effective than many other methods due to the fact that when pressure or force is directed towards a muscle, reflexes engage the muscle to automatically tense and contract. When this happens, the body is actually fighting against the treatment. Since this technique applies the needed pressure quickly, the muscle does not have time to resist, resulting in a more effective treatment that utilizes less force.

This low-force correction technique is ideal for patients who wish to avoid hands-on treatment. In addition, because it produces such low force, using speed rather than power, it is safe for use on pregnant women, babies, and children.
