The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) has come into fruition after 40 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research. This technique uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to pinpoint joint dysfunction in the spine and extremities for improved patient care. AMCT uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument (AAI) to give consistent low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. There are well over 35,000 chiropractors that have been trained in AMCT and nearly 2,100 doctors that are Proficiency Rated, making AMCT the most widely used technique worldwide.
Patient Care is Our Number One Priority
Activator Methods equips capable doctors to provide high-quality patient care. Technique seminars are given around the world on a regular basis to instruct and certify doctors as Basic or Advanced Proficiency Rated AMCT doctors. With the proficiency rating, doctors automatically become part of Activator Method’s worldwide referral service, and patients can rest assured that their care will be consistent and world-class. To uphold the proficiency rating, doctors must attend continuing education seminars on a yearly basis.

How does the Activator Adjusting Instrument work?
To address spinal joint dysfunction, we use an instrument called the Activator. This unique hand-held instrument was specifically designed to give you a very specific, “low-force” adjustment. The Activator instrument delivers a controlled, light and fast thrust, without causing undue strain to patients. Activator adjustments are so quick and controlled, your body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and exact adjustment.
