Are Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Adjustments The Answer For You?
The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic technique is an upper cervical treatment that helps to restore a person’s spinal and nervous system balance and optimize the natural-healing and innate capabilities within the body.
Atlas Orthogonal is unique from traditional chiropractic adjustments as it is gentle, precise, and painless. Unlike traditional chiropractic procedures, there is no twisting, cracking or popping involved. In addition to correcting spinal issues, this technique positively effects a variety of other conditions including arthritis, migraines, headaches, asthma, fibromyalgia, constipation, poor sleep, and overall quality of life.
Dr. Keith Lavender DC is Board-Certified and has been treating patients with this chiropractic specialty for more than 24 years.
Atlas Orthogonal doctors will often use X-Rays to diagnose the condition of the spine and develop precise treatment plans for each individual patient. As with other types of medical testing, X-rays help the Doctor to clearly see the areas that need correction. A percussion instrument is used to apply light pressure to the Atlas vertebra, also known as the C1, and align it to the proper position to restore balance to the body.
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustments focus on the atlas bone (C1). Spinal cord cerebral spinal fluid passes through C1 moving to and from the brain to the rest of the spine. Chiropractors know that if the Atlas vertebra is off its natural alignment, nerve impulses and blood flow to and from the brain will be affected. Misalignment can cause changes in the spine that may lead to tightening of the muscles, neck pain, back pain, shoulders or pelvis, and lead to a number of symptoms including pain that extends into the legs.
Following an Atlas Orthogonal spinal adjustment, patients may experience a range of recovery-related symptoms such as slight soreness or tiredness as their bodies respond to the correction. These symptoms are signs that the treatment is working. Recovery times vary, depending on the severity of the patient’s misalignment, length of time with the condition, and individual stressors such as diet and emotional and physical stress to the body.
