causing you an ounce of discomfort. All you feel is a quick
and painless thrust. And a whole lot better. (The activator
helps take the trauma out of a traumatic injury.)

the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique® was developed
in the late 1960's by American chiropractors Dr. Warren
Lee and Dr. Arlan Fuhr. At the age of 7, Lee was diagnosed
as having spinal meningitis and sent home from hospital,
as he was not expected to live through the night. His parents
called for their chiropractor, Fuhr, who stayed at their
farmhouse, checking and adjusting the young boy every 20
minutes for 48 hours. He recovered and decided to become
During the 1960s, Drs. Warren C. Lee and Arlan W. Fuhr practiced
low-force adjustment techniques. Lee and Fuhr sought to
establish better, more sensitive clinical assessment methods

spinal joints are first tested by careful measurement of your
leg-length equality. This allows the Dr. Slaughter to detect
dysfunction in your spine. Slight pressure is applied to
your spinal muscles using the Activator® instrument
allowing your adjustment without cracking. By applying a
quick, slight pressure to a tight muscle next to your spine,
the muscle relaxes and your spine falls into place without
cracking or popping. The Activator® instrument delivers
a controlled, light, and fast thrust, without causing undue
strain to you. The Activator® instrument causes vertebral
movement using a very low-energy force. It is the most noninvasive
form of chiropractic methods today.
