How Do Chiropractors Help? 

Dr. Chan uses various techniques to manipulate the spinal column and various soft tissue types in your back and throughout your body. These methods are designed to improve your spinal alignment and correct other problems that could be impacting your overall health and wellness. 

A traditional treatment method uses the chiropractor's hands or other tools to provide precise and accurate adjustments. However, new treatments like Activator Methods may help.

What is the Activator Methods? 

The Activator Methods use a specialized hand-held tool to adjust various dis-ease in your body. This small tool can then be used to deliver a gentle, but precise, force through muscles, tendons, ligaments, and vertebrae in your back. Its primary difference from traditional manipulation is the use of lighter manipulation force and more precise adjustments.

This gentle force is designed to improve motion to this area and to adjust the position of your spine carefully. It is a less intense version of the high-velocity low-amplitude methods used by most chiropractors. It has become one of the most common treatment methods and is used by more than half of American chiropractors.
