Advanced Chiropractic Care

At Dean Chiropractic, we have selected the activator method from the many different chiropractic techniques available because of its accuracy, superior safety and well recognized success in quickly relieving pain. Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Activator Method Chiropractic Technique more than any other instrument technique.

At Dean Chiropractic, we offer the treatment techniques that provide the best, gentle solution to relieve pain and we have proven studies to support our confidence. Since the late 1960s, the Activator Method Technique has been used safely on patients of all ages, providing relief to people with a variety of health issues. More than 35,000 doctors worldwide are trained in the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique, making it the most widely used technique internationally.

The Activator Method uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and biomechanical testing to precisely locate joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities. Once identified, the joint dysfunction is rapidly corrected using a rubber tipped, hand-held instrument. The patient feels a gentle tap, often resulting in immediate relief.

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique has been studied and proven to relieve:

  • Spine-related problems including injured discs, low back pain and neck pain
  • Sciatic and radiating leg pain
  • Arm pain and numbness from compressed nerves in the neck
  • Headaches
  • Pinched nerves in the neck and back
  • Tennis elbow and rotator cuff injuries
  • Tempromandibular joint disorders (TMJ)
  • Many other spinal and extremity joint problems

Dr. Christophe Dean has studied with Dr. Arian Fuhr, the developer of Activator Method Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) since 1978 and has been an instructor in the technique for more than 20 years. Dr. Jon Dean has assisted in teaching the method to students at Logan Chiropractic College.
