The Activator Method ChiropracticTechnique is a modern and gentle approach to chiropracticcare. It was developed in the 1960s and 2012 marked an exciting time for the technique with the release of the Activator V. TheActivator V took 7 years to develop and is the first electroniccordless adjusting instrument to be registered with the FDA. Unlikeits predecessor, the spring-loaded Activator IV, the new modelproduces an adjustment at the thrust of a button and is batteryoperated. It has only one moving part (the solenoid) that provides anew force wave allowing the force of the adjustment to transmit moredeeply. In the end, patients are receiving a more precise, effectiveand comfortable adjustment.
