Everyone should have this checked, especially after a trauma like stroke.
The Atlas Orthogonal system is a painless and safe spinal correction which restores body balance and increases the body's natural healing ability.
Because of the precise measurements and X-ray analysis, a correction can be made without any forceful movements or twisting of the neck or back.
The Atlas – or C1 is the guide and protector for the brain stem and spinal cord.
The spinal cord and brain stem passes through the atlas and communicates with the rest of the body. The vertebral arteries pass through the sides of the Atlas and supply the back third of the brain with blood.
When in alignment there is little to no stress to the joints and discs below. There is no nerve irrigation, and there is normal blood flow through the vertebral arteries to the brain and brain-stem.
The Atlas guides the master network of the body – the nervous system. It supports the skull and is considered by many as the most important vertebrae.
The Atlas Orthogonist is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic who, in addition to six or more years of education, utilizes a light force method of specifically adjusting the spine. The Atlas Orthogonist has undergone extensive training specializing in correcting spinal misalignment by using the atlas orthogonal percussion instrument. This method is gentle and effective and requires post graduate training.
