Doctor uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
It is an alternative to the traditional manual form of spinal manipulation.
It involves adjustment to the spine and extremities with very precise hands-on thrusts aimed at restoring proper movement and alignment to the spine.

Q1. What is chiropractic?
A1. Chiropractic is the largest drugless healing profession. The word “chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” and “praktkos,” meaning “done by hand.” A chiropractic physician uses his or her hands to identify and correct misalignments, or “subluxations,” of the spinal vertebrae--the twenty-four small bones that surround and protect the spinal cord. The spinal nerves, which are an extension of the spinal cord, pass between the vertebrae and branch out to every part of the body, including the organs, glands, bones, and muscles. When the vertebrae rotate, tilt, or otherwise get out of alignment, pressure is placed on the spinal nerves, restricting their ability to conduct nerve impulses. Therefore, the tissues or organs that are served by the impinged nerves do not receive the nerve energy required for optimal health. This causes the affected tissues and organs to weaken and become susceptible to attack by bacteria and other organisms. If the condition remains uncorrected, such tissues and organs may ultimately degenerate and develop pathological symptoms. Chiropractic, therefore, treats more than just back pain or joint problems. When subluxations of the vertebrae are corrected and proper nerve flow is restored through chiropractic adjustments of the spinal column, it is not uncommon for seemingly unrelated organic symptoms to disappear as well.
Q2. How do chiropractors treat their patients?
A2. Chiropractic physicians treat patients without resorting to drugs or surgery. They may, however, recommend vitamin and mineral supplements or herbs that could help to relieve muscular tension, strengthen the bone and soft tissue of the body, or address certain nutritional deficiencies that may aggravate the patient’s condition. They may also recommend an exercise regimen to support the treatment program. In many cases, a chiropractor works in conjunction with a massage therapist, nutritionist, herbalist, or other natural health professional.
Q3. What are the common ailments a chiropractor treats?
A3. Chiropractic has been shown to offer effective relief from a wide range of conditions, including headaches, back and joint pain, respiratory conditions, heart trouble, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, menstrual difficulties, and even mental and emotional problems. In some cases, longstanding conditions such as visual disturbances or speech problems also disappear when spinal nerve pressure is relieved through chiropractic.
