Activator.com – Chiropractic Seminars and Instruments
Founded in 1967 on the principal of clinical research, Activator Methods International provides chiropractic care, training, and resources through their website, Activator.com. The organization also helped develop the most popular chiropractic instrument and technique in the world: the Activator Method. Nearly 150,000 licensed professionals are trained in using the Activator Method, which is a low-force chiropractic technique. The actual activator device is a handheld instrument which is used to manipulate the vertebrae (in the spine), without using enough force to cause injury.
Activator.com provides extensive background information on the device, technique, and Arlan Fuhr, the creator. The device is an MFMA (mechanical force manual assisted) tool and, at most, it delivers 0.3 J of kinetic energy during a 3 millisecond pulse. Activator Methods International offers over forty seminars each year to teach people the technique and provide certification. Activator.com additionally provides more than 15 videos about the device.
