"hi-tech" hands-on..: Activator procedures are used to "chiropractically" adjust your spine with the assistance of an "activator"(which is a device that through spring tension delivers a "push" to the area). This is a form of 'manual medicine'. As with all chiropractors; only utilize those whom have a good rep; or you know is highly spoken of; let the buyer beware applies here.

Powered massage: As if the deep, powerful and dangerous manipulation called thrusting is not enough (and it can be dangerous in itself) some chiros add the risk of a powered massage with a gadget that puts extra energy into their manipulations. This increases the risk of injury and should be avoided, especially in the neck area.
