Dr. Compel has also obtained an Advanced Proficiency rating from Activator Methods International LTD. Dr. Compel utilizes the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique which is based on an understanding of body mechanics and force as the key to addressing the presence of vertebral subluxations and structural misalignments. She uses an analytical method which monitors the biomechanical feedback of the body to produce consistent changes using a light specific adjustment without the twisting or pulling usually associated with Chiropractic. The Activator instrument is a small hand-held mechanism that delivers a quick percussive, specific dynamic thrust. By restoring the normal motion of a spinal joint, proper communication of the nerves in that area are re-established, and the body can now function optimally.
