WHAT IS ATLAS ORTHOGONAL
THE ATLAS "ORTHOGONAL"
Orthogonal defined is having to do with right angles, perpendicular,or at 90 degrees.The Atlas supports the weight of the head most efficiently in the orthogonal position.
THE SPINE AND ATLAS ORTHOGONAL
The subluxated (misaligned) Atlas will place stress on the spine and the pelvis. When the Atlas is misaligned, the entire spine loses its proper alignment, causing compensation and the head and body will no longer remain in balance.
THE ATLAS ORTHOGONAL PROCEDURE
The Atlas Orthogonal procedure is a painless and safe spinal correction, which restores body balance and improves body functions through alignment of the Atlas vertebrae
The first step in the course of your personalized care begins with the consultation and examination. Your health history will give detailed information as to when and what brought your symptoms on.
Then the doctor will perform a series of tests to determine your cause of pain. You will then have x-rays taken for the doctor’s report of findings. Exact measurements will determine your Atlas subluxation. Specially designed instruments are used by the Doctor to detect and measure a misalignment. This information is necessary to determine the precise adjustment to adjust the Atlas and correct the subluxation.
After your x-rays have been analyzed the Doctor will go over a Report of Findings with you to determine what needs to be done and how you can help.
Your Doctor will then use the Atlas Orthogonal Instrument to adjust your Atlas and relieve your nerve pressure. The Doctor will re-examine key indicators to determine your degree of improvement. When the Doctor has determined the Atlas adjustment is holding a Post X-ray will be taken to visually verify the progress.
