Activator Chiropractic Adjustment
Evolved over 35 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research, the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to seek joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities for improved patient care. Because of its effectiveness and gentle nature, the Activator Method has grown to become the world’s most widely used instrument chiropractic adjustment.
Restoring spinal balance safely and successfully has been the driving force behind the Activator chiropractic adjustment. This chiropractic treatment utilizes specific protocols to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, identify issues with body mechanics, and test neurological reflexes. By analyzing results of these examinations, an Activator doctor can initiate the process of restoring spinal balance in the patient, gently and effectively. The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the tool more doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments. This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle chiropractic adjustment. The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.
Is the Activator chiropractic adjustment right for you?
The low-force thrust of the Activator, and the doctor’s ability to pin point the exact location of the problem, can relieve your pain without any discomfort, cracking or popping usually experienced with traditional manual adjustments. The Activator chiropractic treatment is so quick and comfortable, even children often look forward to their next visit. Pregnant patients and older patients with bone-weakening conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis particularly find comfort with the gentle nature of an Activator adjustment over traditional methods.
How frequently will you need Activator chiropractic treatment?
As your partner in health care, we are committed to your general good health. Though some believe that chiropractic care is intended to relieve neck and back pain, it has far-reaching benefits. A wide variety of health problems stem from spinal imbalance and dysfunction of the spinal joint and nervous system. Everyday living, stress and old injuries can cause vertebrae to lose their proper position or motion. The dysfunction can irritate your nervous system, causing pain and nerve interference throughout the body. By restoring spinal balance, chiropractic care aids the body in healing itself. Frequency of adjustments varies greatly among patients, depending on the severity and duration or your condition, along with the state of your general health. Once proper alignment is achieved, occasional adjustments are recommended to maintain spinal health. Similar to routine dental cleanings, or physical examinations, occasional visits to a chiropractor helps prevent back, neck and joint conditions.

Arthritis in my hands bothered me for many years. Doctor after doctor would try different treatments, but nothing worked long term. I would feel better for a while, but that pain always came back. I had never been to a chiropractor before, but a friend told me to see Dr. Winchell. Since I could see how much he had helped her, I decided to give Dr. Winchell try. I’m so glad I did. I’m now gardening again (that’s right, at 86 years old).
I’m going to be a father in May, and Dr. Winchell gave my child its first present…a healthy father!!! I was told by my medical doctors that I was permanently disabled and lived crippled for 2 1/2 years. After 2 months with Dr. Winchell, I don’t live in pain anymore.
I have been a chiropractor for over 10 years. Dr. Winchell is my doctor. I drive over 160 miles roundtrip to see him, he is the best
I can’t believe I suffered with migraines for so many years, when help was just up the street. Thanks!!
He saved me from back surgery!
No one can understand the devastation of chronic pain until they experience it. My life was a mess and out-of-control. Dr. Winchell truly saved my life. Thank you for being there for me.
Ten years ago today, I came to you in a wheel chair, wrapped in a beach towel, barely able to move. You put me back together and the next day..I walked again. I was afraid I would never dance a gain, but I have been dancing now for ten years. Thank you!
My truck wasn’t the only thing damaged in my accident. My back and neck were too. Dr. Winchell fixed me good as new.
