Activator Method Chiropractor's
We at the Chiropractic Professionals of Columbia have been Activator Certified Chiropractors since 1998. We Love the fact that this is a Low Force Option in Our Practice. We do The Activator Protocol, and not just hit the high spots.
The Activator Method is a diagnostic treatment system used by Chiropractors to treat many types of pain like Headaches, Neck Pain, Back Pain, Shoulder Pain, and Knee Pain Etc...
The Activator Is a small hand held instrument that delivers a gentle force to the spine which Adjusts and restores motion in the joint.
This is How it Works
A spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument provides a quick, low-force impulse at specific points. There are two theoretical advantages of an Activator instrument-assisted treatment. The first is based on the speed of the device. The instrument is so quick that the body's muscles are less likely to tense in response, and resist the treatment. The lack of muscle resistance may facilitate the treatment effectiveness. The second is that the applied force is localized and does not add any additional torque or bending movement to the joint.
The Chiropractic Professionals of Columbia always used the evaluations of apparent leg lengths. This evaluation is based on a theory that apparent differences in leg lengths indicate where vertebral Misalignment's in the spine are present. We get great results using Basic and Advance Activator Leg Length evaluations.
The Activator Method was initially developed in 1967 by Dr. Arlan Fuhr The first Activator adjusting instrument was patented in 1978 by Activator Methods International, Inc.4
At the time of this article, there are 4 Activator instruments on the market: 1 beginner instrument (Activator I), 2 advanced spring-loaded instruments (Activators II, IV), and 1 mechanical, cordless instrument (Activator V). Most research has been done using the Activator IV instrument.
The Activator was discovered when Dr. Fuhr went to get his Wisdom Teeth Removed. The Dentist Had a tool that would Split the Tooth in half and make it Easier to Remove. Dr. Fuhr ask to see the tool and saw the potential as a Low Force Chiropractic Technique and he Name it Activator.
