Atlas Orthogonal and Upper Cervical Chiropractic
The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique is a method that focuses on identifying and correcting abnormal spinal function. This technique is a gentle and effective upper cervical chiropractic spinal correction of the atlas bone that restores a person’s balance and promotes the body’s natural healing capabilities – resulting in remarkable pain alleviation and improved function. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Treatment aligns the spine, restoring natural balance and allowing the nervous system to communicate properly with the rest of your body. As a result of this technique, you can minimize or eliminate pain or dysfunction, correct your posture, and keep your body healthy.
The Importance of Atlas Health
At the top of the spine, the Atlas is a 2 oz. vertebra (where the head rests). When the atlas is out of alignment, it affects both the vertebral arteries, spinal fluid flow and irritates critical nerves within the body. The altered position of the vertebra and the resulting functional loss is known as “subluxation.” Although not all subluxations cause pain, they can nevertheless cause imbalance and dysfunction. Since many people consider the absence of pain to be a sign of good health, this is considered a serious threat. The upper cervical area also has an impact on the body, changing parts of the brain with connections to organs, impacting posture and balance, and affecting muscles and nerves throughout the face and head.
What is the Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique?
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic, an upper cervical chiropractic treatment, is a method of healing that can aid in restoring the body’s balance and promote optimal health. Unlike other treatments, this method is gentle as it does not include any cracking of the neck or back. Upper cervical chiropractic treatments address the complex link between the upper cervical spine and the central nervous system and brain stem function. From the feelings in your fingers to regulating hormones, managing movement, and providing the ability to hear, see, think, and breathe, this particular link has an impact on every element of human function.
