Experts in the chiropractic community have developed specialized instruments and techniques to assist in patient care. These specialized instruments and procedures allow the delivery of the best treatment for a particular patient to help ensure the best results for that individual.
At Mount Royal Village Family Chiropractic, we are specifically trained in the use of the Calgary Activator Method for spinal adjustments. This comprehensive diagnostic and treatment method was co- developed by Dr. Warren C. Lee, DC, and Dr. Arlan W. Fuhr, DC, and has been in use for over 45 years, proving to be highly effective.
What is the Calgary Activator Technique?
The activator method is an alternative to the more traditional high-velocity and low amplitude (HVLA) manual adjustment. The activator method uses a tool called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to provide a gentle and quick impulse force to the misaligned vertebrae.
