November 1, 2016—Activator Methods International, the pioneering creator of the world’s most popular chiropractic adjusting instruments, has announced a set of major innovations to its successful seminars presented in the U.S. and abroad.
Beginning in January 2017 seminars will now be taught in one day, empowering busy doctors to improve the level of care they provide patients while reducing the time away from their practice and their families. These new classes are streamlined, and now offer a more focused and effective learning experience.
In addition, participants who complete the new, lower-‐cost seminars will still be eligible for eight hours of continuing education credits available through Palmer College of Chiropractic and may test for an Activator Proficiency or Advanced Proficiency rating.
Until now, Activator seminars had been taught in a 1.5 day format that – in many cases – made an overnight stay a necessity and asked doctors to forfeit a whole weekend for the sake of their professional development.
“We listened carefully to seminar participants and then put that feedback into action,” said Arlan Fuhr, DC, chairman and co-‐founder of Activator Methods International. “We launched an immense effort to track down new approaches and new teaching tools that allow us to deliver better training in less time.”
Activator seminars teach the latest, research-based Activator curriculum, with an emphasis on practical, real-world, hands-‐on advice and expertise. Led by advanced proficiency rated doctors with years of clinical practice experience, Activator seminar tracks cover fundamentals (the basic Activator protocol), instrument adjusting for extremities, and clinical topics. The updated classes also come with a lower tuition price tag: doctors may attend for $350, new doctors for$99 and – in honor of Activator’s 50th anniversary in 2017 – students may attend for just $50.
The Activator Method is the most widely used low‐force adjusting technique in the world, with thousands of doctors in the U.S. and internationally holding a proficiency or advanced proficiency Rating. Activator has been the subject of 23 clinical trials (and is the only adjusting instrument with clinical trials), and has more than 150 peer-reviewed research articles to its credit.
Activator CEO Judi Fuhr commented, “Research and education are the driving forces behind everything we do at Activator. We are pleased beyond measure to be able to offer practitioners a way to balance their personal and professional lives while maintaining their skills in this gentle, safe and effective method of adjusting that has provided relief and wellness to hundreds of thousands of patients.”
