Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Activator Technique

Are you uncomfortable with the “cracking” noise associated with manual adjustments? Did you know there is an alternative to the manual technique? The alternative is called Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique. AMCT uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument to give consistent low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. AMCT has evolved from nearly 40 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research. This method of chiropractic adjustments can relieve joint restriction (subluxation), decrease pain, reduce muscle spasm and stimulate the your nervous system to facilitate healing. All three of our chiropractors at KWC use Activator as an alternative to manual adjusting.  

We strive with excellence to overcome injury, achieve optimal
performance and sustain wellness.
