Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is a non-manipulative approach focused on aligning the Atlas – the first bone in the spine. With proper alignment of the Atlas bone, the spine is stabilized. The Atlas bone is the “master control” bone and it influences the other 23 vertebra of the spine, allowing the nervous system to properly communicate healing instructions to the body.
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic uses gentle percussion sound waves to properly align the Atlas bone without putting stress on the spine. When nerve impulses between the brain and body are restricted, pain, tension and other health conditions can result. By realigning this critical bone, Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic relieves nerve compression and promotes healing. Three-dimensional, computerized, digital X-rays are used to pinpoint the exact misalignment of the Atlas vertebra to determine how far it’s shifted from its normal position. This misalignment is known as a Subluxation and is extremely common in patients who have not previously had an Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustment.
