Activator Adjusting Method
Are you suffering from pain but nervous about receiving manual chiropractic treatments? If so, our Activator Adjusting Method could greatly benefit you. The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a small hand-held device that is used as an alternative to the traditional manual form of spinal manipulation, known as the high-velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust. It is used to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a diagnostic and treatment system used by some Ottawa and Kanata, ON chiropractors to treat many types of back pain, neck pain, and headaches (both chronic and migraine). It works the same way as any other manual chiropractic adjustment, but without the manual pressure.
Is the Activator Adjusting Method right for me?
There are many patients that can benefit from the Activator Adjusting Method, based on the diverse, gentle, and universal nature of the instrument. Some of the patients that commonly find success with the Activator Adjusting Method include:
- Patients who are nervous or unwilling to undergo manual chiropractic treatments.
- People who find discomfort or uneasiness with being “cracked.”
- Patients suffering from acute pain.
- Patients with lower pain tolerances.

How do I get started?
It is important to note the Activator Adjusting Method may be done on their own, or in tandem with other treatment methods. When you arrive for your initial appointment, your chiropractor will conduct a comprehensive exam to determine what the best course of treatment will be for your needs.
If your chiropractor decides the Activator Adjusting Method would be an effective treatment for you, he or she will walk you through exactly how many treatments will be needed, and at what level of pressure that will be applied. Additional treatment methods may also be added into your personal treatment plan as your chiropractor deems fit.
