At Pacific Life Chiropractic we use one of the most popular "low force" chiropractic techniques in the world.
First the Evaluation
We begin by analizing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you're lying face down, we'll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths. Ask the Doctor to show you how to do simple leg-length home test. This time-tested protocol tells us if subluxations exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.
Activator Instrument: the hand-held instrument delivers a precise, repeatable force at just the right angle.
The Adjusting Instrument
The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust.
Because it's many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It's also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
The Follow Up
After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of practice member satisfaction.
