Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic can help you to restore your health and maximize your mental and physical performance!
The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic specialty is an upper cervical spinal-corrective procedure that works to restore a person’s balance and stimulate the natural-healing capabilities normally present in the body.
Atlas Orthogonal is unique from traditional chiropractic adjustments because it is very gentle, precise and painless. Atlas Orthogonal, a natural, non-invasive healing modality to balance the body and stimulate the natural healing capabilities. Unlike other chiropractic procedures, there is no twisting, cracking or popping involved. By correcting spinal issues, this technique helps the body to address a variety of other conditions including neck and back pain, sleep, digestive issues, migraine headaches, asthma and fibromyalgia.
A licensed doctor of chiropractic medicine performs this chiropractic specialty. Atlas Orthogonal doctors have completed at least six years of specialized education and training necessary to correct misaligned spines.
Atlas Orthogonal doctors may use X-Rays to assess and treat patients. As with other types of medical procedures, x-rays help the practitioner see the areas that need correction clearly. Atlas Orthogonal doctors use a percussion instrument to apply light pressure to the affected areas and restore balance to the body, relieving stress from the central nervous system.
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustments focus on the atlas bone or C1. The spinal cord passes through this bone before any other. Chiropractors know that if the atlas bone is off its natural alignment, nerve impulses and blood flow to and from the brain is affected. Misalignment can cause a variety of changes in the spine, impacting the neck, back, shoulders and pelvis and lead to a number of symptoms including pain that extends into the hips and legs. The Atlas is like the top link in a chain—when you twist the top link, the links below will follow.
Following an Atlas Orthogonal spinal adjustment, patients typically experience a range of recovery-related sensations such as lights or vision seem brighter or clearer, possible soreness or tiredness as their bodies respond to the correction. Some patients will describe a “flushing” sensation as blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid flow are optimized. These experiences are normal as the body adjusts and begins to heal. Health restoration times vary, depending on the severity of the patient’s misalignment, length of time the condition has been present and the particulars of his or her health conditions.
New or acute conditions typically respond much quicker. This is why it is so important to call your AO doctor immediately after a car accident or injury. The longer misalignments of the spine are left unattended, the greater the risk to the body for chronic illnesses, stiffness, limited range of motion or pain.
