Fulwell Chiropractic
Feel well, live well


Does surfing the net
give you a pain in the neck?


Missing out on your
hobbies through pain?


Is pain holding you
back from the things you love?


Love spending quality time with family... Pain holding you back?

Conditions we can help with include:


"The treatment has worked for me and I now realise that your back is too precious to neglect. I noticed changes in myself after my first adjustment"


"I noticed a change after three or four adjustments. I could sleep much better, driving is more comfortable and gardening is easier"


"Fulwell Chiropractic has changed my life.  I have been a client since 2002, up until then I had constant headaches from my neck and sciatica due to lower back problems.  Now well managed and mostly pain free. Fulwell Chiropractic is great"

Activator Method

What kind of equipment is used? 

Activator Method

We use Activator Method Chiropractic Technique as our primary adjusting technique.

We use a specialised table called a Hi-Lo so that your lying posture is as similar as possible to your standing posture once the table has been lowered. This helps us to more accurately check your leg length and so enables us to assess your spine and extremities more effectively.

The technique system uses procedures that are able to detect mechanical and neurological problems in your spine. Using leg length analysis we are able to find out which areas of your spine require attention and those that don’t. It helps us to know when to adjust, where to adjust and when not to adjust. If it isn’t broken don’t fix it!

Activator V

The technique uses a handheld instrument called an Activator designed to deliver a thrust to the spinal joints to restore their normal motion.

The Activator V is the first FDA registered and approved cordless electronic chiropractic adjustment instrument available today. Four thrust settings generate a force wave to penetrate deep into the body with no discomfort.
