Atlas Orthogonal is a manual Chiropractic method to evaluate and correct subluxations/spinal imbalance. A safe and painless spinal correction which restores body balance and reactivates the body’s natural healing abilities.
An Atlas Orthogonal adjustment targets the atlas vertebra (the top bone in the spine that is located at the base of the skull). A misalignment in the atlas vertebra can lead to a variety of whole body pain/imbalance/disease due to the nervous system functions from the brain to the rest of the body being interrupted.
Some common health problems associated with a misaligned atlas can include headaches/migraines, neck and facial pain, low back pain, as well as general poor health.
With Atlas Orthogonal adjustments, there is no “cracking” or “popping” to the vertebra. A trained chiropractor will also use an instrument to help perform this gentle adjustment through a “tap”.
Atlas Orthogonal adjustments can help with a wide variety of pain syndromes and health conditions – sciatica, headaches, migraines, TMJ dysfunction, fibromyalgia, autism, depression, anxiety, and even multiple sclerosis (MS)
