Upper cervical specific

The chiropractic approach is based on the principle that the body heals naturally. This natural healing is initiated and controlled by the nervous system. These nerve impulses flow down from the brain (central nervous system) to your spinal cord and out through spinal nerves (peripheral nervous system) to your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and vital organs. Interference within the nervous system due to spinal joint misalignment leads to dis-ease in the body. This dis-ease causes reduction of optimal structure and function. This disruption is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC).

Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Method

This method is so gentle that many patients cannot believe an adjustment has actually taken place until they notice that their function has improved and their discomfort has been relieved.  Atlas Orthogonal is a gentle, effective and proven Chiropractic technique that does not utilize physical manipulation.  The Atlas is the top vertebrae of the spine and supports the head.  Orthogonal means at right angle to or square. If the Atlas is not square to the head and spine (referred to as subluxated) then the head and spine are by necessity out of alignment . Essentially if the head is not on straight then the spine cannot possibly be straight. The resulting stress that ensues may cause discomfort to the back, shoulders, pelvis, hips, knees and ankles.

A normal Atlas is aligned squarely with both the spine and skull. A misaligned or subluxated Atlas is not square.  The adjusting instrument is a safe, gentle, and precise method of correcting a misaligned (subluxated) Atlas vertebrae, without physical manipulation.  The stylus delivers a precise impulse to the exact area needed as determined by X-rays.
