Activator

The Activator is a small, hand-held instrument which delivers a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
It is an alternative to the traditional manual form of spinal manipulation discussed above.

Next to spinal manipulation, the Activator Adjusting Instrument is reported to be the most common therapeutic intervention used by chiropractors (Huggins, Boras, Gleberzon, et al, 2012)

Huggins T, Boras AL, Gleberzon BJ, et al. Clinical effectiveness of the activator adjusting instrument in the management of musculoskeletal disorders: a systematic review of the literature. Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association 2012;56(1):49-57.
