The Activator Method
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. Patients from all ages can enjoy the benefits of an adjustment with the activator. This technique is especially effective for children who have a hard time laying still. Older patients, people with arthritis, osteoporosis or other bone-weakening conditions find the technique effective and gentle. Read more about the Activator Method
No instruments are used in the adjusting procedure. Motion palpitation and full spine, hands-on techniques are used to deliver a deeper thrust, which makes an osseous (popping) sound as the adjustment is given. Read more about the Diversified Method.

Network Chiropractic or NSA

Dr. Thomas Whittington was one of the very first fully certified NSA practitioners in the country. For several years, he was the only certified NSA doctor in the southeast.
