About Spark Chiropractic

Spark’s Noe Valley office specializes in gentle chiropractic care.


The Activator Method, practiced at Spark Chiropractic is an extremely gentle chiropractic adjusting technique which is great for people of all ages and physical condition.  Using a small, handheld instrument, very specific spinal segments may be adjusted quickly, with no thrust or “twisting, popping or cracking.”

The protocol of assessing the spine at each visit is very structured, analytical and accurate.  It employs a series of neurological tests (or “challenges”) to determine which segments of the spine to adjust, and which ones to leave alone.  The patient remains comfortably face-down through the entire adjustment.

Why should I get adjusted?

The nervous system (via the spinal cord) is a direct conduit from the brain to the rest of the body.  By making specific adjustments to the spine, chiropractors ensure that this system functions without impairment.  Since the nervous system is responsible for running all the other systems in the body, it is vital to your state of overall wellness.

By clearing your spine, chiropractic care ensures that your nervous system can function properly.  Many common conditions (and aches and pains) are cleared in this vitalistic way, without pharmaceuticals, surgical intervention or side effect.

Working with this delicate system does not require a lot of force.  You don’t have to “try to relax” in order to receive the adjustment.  The adjustments at Spark Chiropractic are specific, low-force impulses that work with your body’s reflex patterns.

Low force, abundant results.

Chiropractic care is safe, gentle and effective.
