ATLAS ORTHOGONAL THERAPY

Don't carry the weight of the world on your shoulders

WHAT IS ATLAS?

Atlas Orthogonal is a system of adjusting subluxations of the cervical spine at the uppermost vertebra which is commonly known as Atlas.

The actual adjustment is performed with an Atlas Orthogonal Percussion Adjusting Instrument. The instrument works by percussion – a sound wave – and the bone is gently restored to its normal position.

WHAT IS PERCUSSION?

An example of percussion is Newton’s Cradle. Newton demonstrated that if you pull one ball back and release it, the balls in the middle stay put, while the ball on the end bounces away. The Atlas Orthogonal Percussion Adjusting Instrument works on this same principle.

IS YOUR HEAD ON STRAIGHT?

Notice the tilt of the skull and lower neck on the before picture above. The first vertebra is extremely titled. This individual has more than eighteen degrees of rotation on his second, C2, vertebra.

After treatment, the rotation was reduced to 1.4-degrees immediately. The patient is now in a much more orthogonal (at right angles) alignment and feeling much better.

YOU MIGHT BE A CANDIDATE IF YOU SUFFER FROM:

  • Neck Pain

  • Headaches / Migranes

  • Vertigo

  • Back Pain

  • Stiff Neck

  • Limited Head Rotation

  • Whiplash

  • Falls

  • Other Stress or Trauma

ATLAS ORTHOGONAL FAQ’S

What is Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic?

The Atlas Orthogonal system is a painless and safe spinal correction which restores body balance and reactivates the body’s natural healing abilities.

This precision form of upper cervical spinal correction painlessly restores body balance without forceful movements or twisting of the neck or back.

The Atlas Orthogonal spinal correction...who needs it?

When most people think of chiropractic corrections, they think of neck pain, back pain, or muscle aches. The Atlas Orthogonal Spinal Correction can help your body work better no matter what type of health problem you may have. Our organization is dedicated to correcting the Atlas Subluxation Complex which is a misalignment of the bone structure of the head and neck. This misalignment can block the communication between your brain and body causing pain, stress, and tension.

What can I expect after my first correction?

After the first Atlas Orthogonal spinal correction, you may experience a variety of changes within your body. These are due to the nervous system responding to the structural correction. Symptoms are a positive sign that healing is taking place. In order to heal, the body must go through different cycles of repair which very often express themselves in some of the following ways:

  • Alleviation of symptoms
    • Tiredness or sleepiness
    • Muscle stiffness/Soreness
