Activator method uses a spring loaded instrument to restore mobility to the joint. The device is very precise, and easily restores motion in the joints. With other methods, the patient may be moved around quite a bit, which isn’t always optimal for the patient. However, with activator method, little movement on the patient’s part is required.
The activator looks like a tiny pogo stick, with a rubber “foot” on the end. This foot is pressed against the affected area, and the activator is pressed down on the spot until the spring within releases the foot. This quick pressure will adjust the area. The activator technique is a low force chiropractic method.
