The Activator is a spring-loaded, hand-held tool used by chiropractors to create movement in your bones and joints. The use of the Activator tool is an alternative to manual adjusting that is both gentle and highly effective in producing spinal realignment.


The Activator Method of diagnosis begins with leg-length assessment and the performance of various muscle tests in order to evaluate the neurological response of your legs. Each of these muscle tests corresponds with a specific vertebrae in the spine. The results of these tests then reveal exactly where the problematic bone/ joint is and where the adjustment will be administered.


Dr. Petersen is the only Activator-certified doctor in the Antelope Valley. For the last decade, he has maintained the highest level of achievement that Activator Methods offers- the Advanced Proficiency Rating.


Why Activator?


Activator adjusting is just as effective as manual adjusting in producing movement in a bone or joint. The effectiveness of the Activator tool lies in the speed at which it can administer an adjustment. It is so quick that the muscles of your body do not have time to tense before the bone or joint are moved.  The Activator method is very precise in both locating the problem and in administering the necessary adjustment.


At Active Life Chiropractic, we have found that the Activator tool works well in treating individuals with traumatic injuries, pregnancy, advanced age, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Many of our patients, especially those who are concerned about being “cracked,” have found success with Activator adjusting and are amazed at the results they have experienced in their own lives.
