Our Chiropractic Technique

Activator Methods®

We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.

First the Evaluation

We begin by analysing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths. Click here to try a simple leg-length home test.

This time-tested protocol tells us if subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.


The Adjusting Instrument

Activator Instrument

The Activator Instrument: a hand-held device which delivers precise, repeatable force at just the right angle.

The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed precise thrust at just the right angle.

Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective.

It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.

The Follow Up

After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.

If you think that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, contact Westleigh Chiropractic to arrange a thorough examination in our practice.
