What is Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic?
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is a specialty within the chiropractic field. The Atlas Orthogonal system is a painless and safe spinal correction which restores body balance and reactivates the body's natural healing abilities.
How does this unique method differ from general chiropractic care?
One of the most obvious differences is the gentle, painless way in which an atlas orthogonal chiropractor works. No manipulation (twisting or cracking) is ever employed or needed. The atlas orthogonal methods require such light touches to the affected area, that patients who may expect a forceful manipulation as part of their treatment, find it hard to believe that anything effective has been accomplished. But, their doubts and fears vanish as quickly as their pain and discomfort.
How is the treatment determined?
The treatment is decided upon after a thorough evaluation of the patient's symptoms and prior health history. Combining that information with the results of any orthopedic, neurological chiropractic examination, leg measurements, and X-ray studies, the doctor is able to pinpoint accurately the source of the problem and decide upon the best plan of health care.
Once I start care will I have to continue indefinitely?
Your health is your decision. How long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care is up to you. However, most people treat the care of their spine and nervous system like they would their teeth or automobiles; they schedule regular checkups or tune-ups to preserve the life in their bodies. They know that it is wiser to preserve good health than have to rescue it.
Do I need to feel pain to benefit from Chiropractic care?
Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care, whether they are in pain or not. Today a growing number of people ranging from athletes to the elderly are consistently receiving chiropractic care. These people state that they benefit from consistent chiropractic care in the following ways: they experience less injuries, an increase in their immune systems, more energy, less stress and a sense of overall well being.
