Atlas Orthogonal is a specialized chiropractic technique that focuses on the upper cervical spine, specifically the atlas vertebra (C1-C3). The goal of an Atlas Orthogonal adjustment is to restore proper alignment and balance to the atlas, which can have a positive impact on the overall function of the body. During an Atlas Orthogonal adjustment, the chiropractor uses a precision instrument that delivers a gentle and specific force to the atlas vertebra, without any manual twisting or cracking of the neck. The adjustment is typically painless and non-invasive.
The purpose of the adjustment is to correct any misalignments or subluxations in the atlas that may be causing nerve interference or affecting the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. By restoring proper alignment, it is believed that the body can function
optimally and heal itself more effectively. The Atlas Orthogonal technique is known for its precision and specificity. Chiropractors who specialize in this technique undergo additional training to ensure they have a deep understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the upper cervical spine.
It's important to note that while Atlas Orthogonal adjustments can provide relief for certain conditions, it may not be suitable for everyone. It's always best to consult with a qualified Dr. of Chiropractic or other qualified healthcare professional, to determine if this technique is appropriate for your specific needs.
