The Activator:

activator-IVThe Activator is a technique using a small spring loaded adjusting instrument. This instrument delivers a small measurable force anywhere from 2-14 lbs. of pressure to the spine. Through the observation of leg length changes the locations of vertebral subluxations are determined.  The activator technique does not involve any twisting or bending of the patient. The patient lies on their stomach as the doctor applies this gentle force to the spine.

Chiropractic Biophysics:

Chiropractic Biophysics focuses on postural subluxations. Posture is the window to the spine and reveals a great deal about global subluxation patterns. In CBP technique, mirror-image adjustive procedures are used as the methods of correcting or reducing abnormal three-dimensional postures. This is accomplished by gently stressing the patient’s subluxated posture into its mirror image (opposite posture) while applying forces. Monitoring pre and post x-ray changes help in evaluating progress.  With this technique once again there is very little bending or twisting of the patient during an adjustment.

Chiropractic is a science and just like any profession, research is on going. Our goal is to provide you, your family and friends with quality care and implement recent research results.

If at any time you do not feel comfortable with a specific adjustment, it is important that you bring it to our attention. There may be another type of adjustment that can be done to achieve similar results.
