We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world—right here in Monterey, California. The Activator Method is the most widely-used technique for instrument adjusting by Chiropractors in the world. It is a gentle, low-force approach to Chiropractic care that has been around since the late 1960's, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.
The Activator Method technique utilizes specific protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, identify issues with body mechanics and test neurological reflexes. When the exact area of the body that needs to be adjusted is identified, the Chiropractor can start the process of restoring spinal balance, gently and effectively. This time-tested protocol tells us if vertebral subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.
The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.
Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
After your adjustment, we retest to make sure corrections have been made. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.
