Chiropractic is a natural, holistic approach to health care based on four scientific facts:
- The body is a self-healing and self-regulating intelligent organism.
- The central nervous system communicates and coordinates with every other system in the body and is protected by the skull and the vertebral segments.
- The largest source of balance and coordination input to the brain comes from the spinal joints. When they do not move well, neurological input to the brain is altered creating body-wide stress.
- Interference and stress decreases the body’s ability to heal and self-regulate.
The first vertebra of the spine is C1 or the Atlas. Orthogonal means at right angles or square. The head should sit level on the atlas and the atlas should sit squarely on the cervical (neck) spine. The delicate upper neck, where the skull and atlas are located, is the most movable and least stable area of the entire spine.
An Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical 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. There is no popping or cracking of the neck. The method is so gentle that many patients cannot believe the adjustment really took place or that it could re-align the spine until they notice how much their range of motion has improved, tension, discomfort or migraines have been relieved.
