Dr. Arlan Fuhr (’61), chairman and co-founder of Activator Methods International, will be making a special presentation at the Women’s Health Symposium on Saturday, Sept 28.
From 1 to 2 p.m., Dr. Fuhr will be addressing treatment options for the aging spine, specifically addressing a research study that finds the Activator a safe method for adjusting patients with osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased.
“Not only did the study determine that it was safe, but it showed that there was regrowth in the osteoporotic area of the bone being adjusted,” he said. “This is important because of the amount of osteoporosis in women over the age of 65.”
The Activator Method is the world’s most widely used adjusting technique that is employed by more than 70 percent of all chiropractors and taught in nearly every chiropractic college in the world.
Dr. Fuhr, who established the National Institute of Chiropractic Research, a nonprofit research foundation, holds 13 domestic patents, 47 worldwide trademarks and more than 100 copyrighted works.
