Activator Method
Chiropractic Technique

The Activator Method is a type of gentle, non-manual manipulation that is often used instead of, or in addition to, traditional high velocity manual adjustments. The activator uses a small hand-held mechanical device as a diagnostic tool and treatment for various types of neck, back and jaw pain. Through gentle impulse forces directly to the spine or joints, the Activator Method restores mobility to the targeted areas. There are many advantages to incorporating activator treatment into a patient’s health restoration plan. Dr. Lisa Parissi, DC is certified in the Activator Method and she loves to use this method on her patients given the high level of specificity and low risk.
