Monroe Chiropractic Associates offers different treatment methods based on the needs of each individual patient. Our doctors will determine which method is right for you based on the severity of your problem and the results of your exam and x-rays (if any were taken). Some patients respond better to a hands-on adjusting approach, but for some patients a more gentle approach is indicated.
About Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique®
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique® is the world's best known and most frequently practiced instrument adjusting technique. It is a gentle, low-force method of adjusting the joints of the spine to effectively and comfortably improve spinal balance. This technique has been used safely on patients of all ages for over forty years, providing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.
How does the Activator Method work?
The chiropractors at Monroe Chiropractic Associates have received extensive training in the Activator Method, which uses a series of tests to detect joint dysfunction and test neurological reflexes through leg-length inequality analysis. The adjustment is performed using a percussive instrument specifically designed to stimulate nerve endings responsible for detecting things like pressure and joint position while at the same time improving motion in spinal joints.
