A Chiropractic activator adjusting instrument, with a spring-loaded hand-held mechanical instrument that provides a quick, low-force impulse at specific points (SpineHealth, 2016).
The adjusting device used by our chiropractic professionals applies a pain-free, low force treatment, to release muscle spasms and correct misalignment that occur in the spine and body. By providing a high velocity, low amplitude thrust it gives a consistently effective result.
What does posture have to do with it?
A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate and impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of nerve impulses that control your body. Posture is a major consideration when assessing and treating the spine. At ChiroCure Clinic our chiropractors aim to correct this process, thereby improving pain, movement & posture throughout your entire body.

Diagnosing your condition
Radiology Imaging can be an integral part of chiropractic diagnostic procedures. X-rays will help to determine the health of your spine by clearly showing misalignment and degeneration.
They may increase the safety and accuracy of your care, and help determine the right program for you. Our chiropractors take a thorough approach to help ensure that you will be provided with the highest standard of chiropractic care.

Based on the nature of your condition as well as a number of other factors, x-rays of your spine or injured body part may be required to identify subtle abnormalities, serious pathologies, level of degeneration and nerve irritation present.
