The Activator Method is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy. Activator Methods has published hundreds of clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, worked with major academic research institutions, and received grants from recognized entities like the National Institutes of Health. Activator Methods chiropractic technique (AMCT) was developed by Warren Lee, DC and Arlan Fuhr, DC. In the evolution of AMCT, Lee and Fuhr drew on elements of several other techniques, including Logan Basic, Van Rumpt, Truscott and Derefield, and developed innovation equipment, such as the Activator adjusting instrument (AAI).
Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique involves analyzing the length of the legs, and determining whether a pelvic deficiency is present. Since each person stands and holds their hips in a different way the result can be excessive pressure on one side; over time a difference in leg length may contribute to pain in the hips and leg joints. The Activator Methods technique aims to restore the body by correcting vertebral and pelvic misalignments using an Activator mallet to push and set the joints back into the correct position.
The Activator method is most widely used to geriatric, toddler and infant population. Its ability to control the amount of pressure at one specific point is one of its greatest strengths and it is used by both our Midtown Manhattan, near Grand Central Station and Brooklyn Heights offices.
