What is the "Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique?"

In the late 1960's, this revolutionary chiropractic technique was developed to improve the safety and comfort of the chiropractic patient. Since then, the technique has grown to be the most widely used "low force" chiropractic technique in the world. The Activator Technique incorporates the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations along with a unique system of administering spinal adjustments. Using the Activator analysis and the Activator instrument, we can restore proper spinal balance, safely and comfortably.

There is no "popping" or "crunching" of the joint with this technique. Special tables are used to lower the patient into position and patients are in a comfortable face down position during the adjustment. The Activator instrument delivers a controlled, light, and fast thrust, without causing you undo strain. One of the unique features of the Activator instrument is that we can zero in on the exact area that is causing your health problems without interrupting the body mechanics of nearby vertebrae.

Doctors who use the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique receive extensive training, and must take a yearly exam to become certified. Dr. Sansen is Advanced Proficient rated and is also an Activator Methods instructor. For more information on the Activator Technique and for a list of certified DCs around the world, please visit
