How does the Activator adjusting instrument work?

The activator method has grown to be the most widely used "low force" technique in chiropractic. This specific system of adjusting restores proper balance, and does it with improved safety and comfort.

The hand-held Activator instrument is specifically designed to deliver a controlled, light and fast thrust without undue strain to the patient.

After 35 years of study and 15 years of clinical research, there evolved (developed by Dr. Arlan W. Fuhr) a technique based on low force and high speed activation of the skeletal structure which incorporated the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic science.

How does the Activator adjusting instrument work?

When any force, such as a chiropractic adjustment, intrudes into the body, muscles in the involved area are automatically contracted by reflex mechanism, in order to protect that area from the intrusion.  The Activator instrument produces a thrust which is quicker than the body's reflexes can respond and tighten up the local muscles.  In other words, the thrust delivered by the instrument is so quick that it accelerates ahead of the body's tendency to tighten up and resist the thrust of an adjustment.

So, in simple terms, the force necessary to move and adjust the joint is developed by the "speed" of the instrument's thrust, and not by a high "force". So, although the Activator instrument produces a very effective thrust, it is felt as a very gentle sensation only.

Because of the accuracy and controlled light force, Activator Methods adjustments are suitable and comfortable for all types of patients, ranging from pregnant women, babies and children, to athletes and seniors.
