The Activator is a small, hand-held instrument that delivers a gentle, adjustive thrust without the practitioner applying physical force with their body. It can be set at varying levels of intensity and can be used to adjust big and small joints with accuracy and precision. Download the Activator FAQ sheet from the new patient page for more details.
Tables with separate segments that can be lifted by levers and set at a specific tension determined by the chiropractor. When the adjustment is delivered, the table "drops," allowing gravity to assist in the adjustments. Less force is needed to deliver these types of adjustments and it is unnecessary for patients to be placed on their side in uncomfortable or awkward positions in order to receive an adjustment.
A chiropractic adjustment delivers a high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust at a specific angle to a joint in the body that is not moving properly. The light, fast impact in the proper direction frees the "stuck" joint and allows it to resume normal motion. This eliminates irritation and inflammation in the region, resulting in reduced pain.
There are many different kinds of adjustments and chiropractic techniques, and they all feel different. Some adjustments cause a "popping" sound as gasses are released from the joint, others do not. Most people will find a style of adjusting that works best for them, and that's great. Chiropractic is not a one-size-fits all approach.
