The Activator is an instrument that is used to adjust patients without the use of manual (hand) adjustments. One of the most researched techniques out there, the Activator is a go-to for patients that can’t be adjusted with other techniques that require more force. A chiropractic adjustment is a high-velocity, low-amplitude force directed in a very specific direction. The Activator is exactly that! It is a tool that uses a spring-loaded mechanism to deliver a very consistent, very specifically placed force on a bone that isn’t moving as it should.
