This method of chiropractic care has evolved over nearly 40 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research. The Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to determine joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities. AMCT utilizes the Activator Adjusting Instrument to apply consistent, low-impact, high-speed chiropractic adjustments that result in extremely specific, effective and gentle patient care.
The Pettibon Procedures cause measurable changes by using repeatable scientific methods to measure before and after x-rays. These procedures include adjustment or manipulation by hand and with one or more mechanical adjusting instruments for precision application of correcting forces.
Patients are involved through in-office and home exercises that will speed recovery, stabilize the spine and heal soft tissue, thus reducing frequency of office visits. Regular examinations monitor progress and help modify adjustment and exercise procedures, expediting healing and full recovery.
This extremely effective full-spine technique utilizes a special ‘Segmental Drop Table’. The table enhances the motion force imparted toward the segment or area to be adjusted. This ‘Segmental Drop System’ takes advantage of the spine’s inherent design of the joints, moving the spinal segment in the direction that will improve its' motion with adjoining segments.
