Chiropractic Care/Activator Method

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Current correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Martin Ressler has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Are you nervous about being adjusted?

Dr. Ressler can treat your conditions with an adjusting instrument that is low force, precise and does not involve cracking or twisting. It is a spring loaded instrument (picture below) that sends a gentle force into the joint and moves it back into position. It is pain free and gets fantastic results!


What is the Activator technique?

The Activator is a small handheld device used to adjust joints in the spine. The Activator is also referred to as a manual assisted instrument. It is used to deliver a controlled force to move each individual vertebra back into correct position.

Why should I choose the Activator technique instead of a manual chiropractic approach?

The activator technique is a more precise and gentle approach. This is because the impulse delivered from the instrument is only to a specific joint. When a joint is out of alignment in the spine, it can impinge on nerve roots and cause pain. The Activator technique corrects the misalignment without excessive force, twisting or cracking. Our patients love the activator method because it is ultimately less stressful than a typical manual adjustment. This is because there is no cracking or twisting that is usually associated with the manual adjustment.

Are there any side effects associated with the Activator technique?

There are no side-effects associated with the Activator technique. Unlike a manual chiropractic adjustment, the only joints that move are the ones that are being adjusted.  This makes the activator method more comfortable and effective for patients. After your adjustment with the activator method, Dr. Ressler, Oviedo chiropractor will ensure that your pain and symptoms will have been alleviated. 

Considering having disc Surgery?

If you do not want to have surgery, the flexion/distraction table is a conservative alternative that can help in the recovery of your injuries.

flexion distraction table

Developed in the 1960s by James Cox, DC, the Cox Technic is based on chiropractic and osteopathic principles noted in the Manual of Osteopathic Technique by Alan Stoddard, DO, which was written about the early 1900s manipulative procedures of John McManis, DO. Years of refining have gone into the Cox Technic, which is taught in chiropractic schools and written about in textbooks. With its hands-on approach that uses a special flexion-distraction table, this specialized table is widely used today for cervical and lumbar disc herniations, as well as to increase spinal joint mobility and non-disc spinal disorders. Tables that are suitable for the Cox Technic include features such as a long y-axis that allows you to focus on each individual segment while maintaining control.
