Activator Method

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.

Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Method has grown to become the second most-widely used chiropractic technique endorsed throughout the chiropractic field and is in use every day by 70 percent of all chiropractors. Today, Activator is taught in nearly every college in the United States and abroad, and in professional seminars throughout the year.

The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the tool used to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments. This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle adjustment.

The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.

After studying and testing with Activator, Dr. McKiernan received his proficiency rating in 2010. He maintains this rating with annual training and testing. Many Chiropractors may use this instrument but unless they are proficiency rated and taking yearly renewal programs they may not be using the Activator the way it was intended or to its fullest extent.

Dr. McKiernan decided to add the Activator Method to his practice in order for patients to experience the comfort and safety of the Activator Method. Dr. McKiernan has practiced manual methods for over thirty years and while he has been impressed with the high level of effectiveness and patient satisfaction with the Activator Method, he realizes that patients have preferences with regards to chiropractic care and uses manual methods when necessary or requested.
