Beka is getting her first ever chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Keith Lavender, a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical specialist in Gilbert, AZ!!
Prior to the very gentle atlas adjustment, Dr. Lavender exams the cervical spine by palpating, checking for any abnormalities in the spinal structure. The purpose of the spinal palpation is to identify any misalignments before adjusting to re-align the vertebrae. Many medical exams include this method of examination by chiropractors and medical doctors.
Atlas Orthogonal speciality focuses on the top vertebra of the spine known as C1 or the Atlas. It is the most movable and least stable bone in the entire spine. The head is meant to sit squarely on top of the atlas and the atlas should sit squarely on the cervical spine. The Atlas Orthogonal specialist has received advanced training to identify and correct the atlas misalignment with a precise and gentle adjustment that is delivered to an exact area as determined by X-rays.
Many conditions from migraines, to low back pain to insomnia may be caused by misalignment in the atlas and other areas in the spine causing interference or stress to the central nervous system. Misalignments can be caused from the birth process, falls, repetitive motion, traumas, emotional, physical or chemical stress to the body.
