our technique - The Activator Method

Chiropractic Mountain Brook AL Activator


Doctors Brad and Lori Hassig at Hassig Family Chiropractic are the only Activator Chiropractors in Mountain Brook. Dr. Brad is even an instructor at Activator seminars!

Chiropractic doesn't have to be all about the "crack", there is an alternative, more gentle method - the Activator Method.

What is an Activator V?

The ACTIVATOR V is the first FDA registered and approved cordless electronic chiropractic adjustment instrument available today. It produces an electronic thrust of pressure at the touch of a button which generates a force wave to penetrate deep into the body with no discomfort.

The Activator Method is the world’s #1 instrument adjusting method. Instrument adjusting is now the second most common type of chiropractic manipulation.

It is a safe, gentle and effective alternative to the traditional ‘pop and crack’ approach to chiropractic care. The Activator instruments are calibrated to deliver a consistent, measured, gentle thrust that adjusts the skeleton without the pushing and twisting that some patients find frightening.

YES! Because the Activator Method delivers a pain-free, gentle thrust even patients suffering from osteoporosis (and other issues related to aging) can be safely and effectively adjusted.

Again, YES! We find that even squirmy youngsters often look forward to their Activator adjustments.

The Activator Method has been the subject of scientific research that found it not only safe but every bit as effective as other more traditional chiropractic methods. Activator offers the only instrument that has been the subject of 23 clinical trials, and is the only adjusting instrument that has been researched that way. More than 150 peer-reviewed scientifi c research articles have been written about the Activator Method and Activator Instruments.

That’s the doctor’s way of ensuring the adjustment is complete and effective. The leg-length technique has also been heavily researched and found to be accurate and reproducible (meaning that many doctors can use the same technique and get the same result).

They are definitely NOT the same. Activator is the only instrument that has clinical trials that found it to be safe and effective. Be sure to ask for the Activator instruments and the Activator Method by name!
