Techniques utilized

Activator - The activator is a technique that utilizes a spring loaded impulse to achieve a direct subtle movement at the joint level. like all adjustments applied to spinal and peripheral joints, the activator delivers a gentle impulse to joint tissues in a purposeful direction to achieve the desired outcome.

Activator method can achieve this in a non-invasive, gentle way and is often adopted by practitioners where the application of other techniques would be inappropriate.

Drop Table (Thompson's Terminal Point Technique) - This Technique involves a specialized chiropractic table that allows specific segments to be lifted no more than 10mm and then gently dropped back into place with the use of gravity.
