Activator Chiropractor: FAQ
What is the Activator Method?
The Activator is a small handheld spring-loaded device used to adjust bones/joints in the spine. It is used to deliver a controlled force to move each individual vertebra back into the correct position. It is gentle and carries minimal, to no soreness after care.
Why should I choose the Activator Method?
The Activator Method is a precise and gentle approach to care. This is because the impulse delivered from the instrument is only to a specific joint. When a joint is out of alignment in the spine, it can impinge on nerve roots and cause pain. The device sends gentle force into the joint and moves it into the proper position.
The Activator Method corrects the misalignment without excessive force, twisting, or cracking. The muscles in the injured area do not have time to guard against the quick force so the joint moves effortlessly. Our patients love the Activator Method because it is less stressful on their body than manual adjustments.
Are there any side effects associated with the Activator Method?
No, there are no side effects associated with the Activator Method. In fact, when properly delivered by highly trained practitioners, you can expect a comfortable, effective, pain-free visit. Its only side effect is decreased pain and discomfort!

Finding The Best Chiropractor
Everyone is looking for the best chiropractor, and rightfully so. It would be crazy to want the second-best chiropractor and even more crazy to want the worst chiropractor. But with so many chiropractors to choose from, how do you know who’s the best? That’s a great question.
The simple answer isn’t very simple at all. The best chiropractor for one person is often not the best chiropractor for someone else. That’s why one person can go around telling anyone who will listen, “My chiropractor is the best,” while another person goes around saying “That chiropractor is just OK”, and they are both talking about the same chiropractor.
If you are looking for a chiropractor, the most important thing is that you find the best chiropractor for you. That will probably require you to do a little research and have a little patience. There are a lot of chiropractors to choose from, and each of them does things a little differently than the rest.
