We use an extremely low force chiropractic technique when it comes to the activator method. This method involves a hand-held, spring-loaded instrument-based manipulation/ adjustment tool. Unlike the manipulating or adjusting method which is administered by hand, a small thrust is applied with the small appliance that produces a lighter, but quicker, thrust.
Dr Ho advises the activator method to be used as a main treatment method for patients who may not desire manual the manipulation or adjustments. In addition, this technique is especially effective for adjusting smaller bones in the body like the ribs and neck.
