Activator Spinal Manipulative Therapy uses a small spring loaded instrument called the Activator® designed to deliver a controlled, subtle and fast thrust without any strain to the patient. This technique allows for a chiropractic adjustment to the specific vertebra without resistance from the body making it both safe and gentle.(www.activator.com)

  1. It is amazing therapy and has kept me on my feet ever since a back injury several years ago.. I never could have stood traditional manipulation... Dr's Roberts and Steinhouser are masters with the Activator and other care. Thanks for your good work and well done.. Phill McIntyre.
