The activator method utilizes a hand-held instrument referred to as an activator. This instrument delivers a very precise adjustment. The activator may be used on any joint, however, it is particularly useful in treating the smaller joints of the hands and feet. The activator method is also a good alternative for people who are sensitive to being touched or for those with Osteoporosis or Arthritis. This is one of the more gentler of the Chiropractic methods.
This technique is great for children, the elderly or people who do not like the popping sound of getting adjusted.
