WHAT IS ATLAS ORTHOGONAL CHIROPRACTIC
Atlas Orthogonal is a technique within Chiropractic that focusses on correcting the upper cervical spine. Arguably this region of the spine is the most delicate and important area due to its close relationship with the cranial nerves.
Perhaps you’ve experienced neck pain, shoulder pain or headaches from sitting at your computer too long. Maybe you have woken with a stiff neck or felt a twinge at the gym. The devastating effects of a neck injury can be felt for weeks or even months if the cause is not addressed. The cause is often an Atlas Displacement Complex (ADC). When corrected by an Upper Cervical specific chiropractor your body starts to relax and the healing process begins.
By the age of three the typical child would have experienced at least three major falls, by age seven it has been estimated most children have experienced hundreds of falls. Misalignments of the Atlas vertebrae when left uncorrected will continue into adult life. When you combine this with trauma often experienced in adult years such as car accidents, slips and falls, blows to the head and sporting injuries then it is clear to see how the spine and atlas can become misaligned. Even repetitive micro trauma such as poor posture especially whilst sitting at a computer, bad sleeping habits, and incorrect lifting and carrying will also cause misalignment.
A MISALIGNED ATLAS IS OFTEN THE HIDDEN CAUSE OF MANY HEALTH PROBLEMS
Not all Chiropractors are trained in the Atlas Orthogonal method or even know how to specifically correct the upper cervical region. If you have suffered an injury to the head and neck or have been living with constant pain, then you need to undergo an Atlas assessment.BOOK APPOINTMENT
We all know how debilitating and often depressing it is when chronic pain starts to take over our lives. One in five Australians live with constant chronic pain, it’s the most common reason people seek medical help, yet is one of the most neglected and misunderstood areas of healthcare.
THE ATLAS VERTEBRAE CAN AFFECT THE ALIGNMENT OF YOUR ENTIRE SPINE
Atlas misalignments of the neck set up a chain-reaction process where the spine twists and curves creating tight, painful muscles and a scoliosis to develop. You can check on yourself or family members for the following signs of an Atlas misalignment;
- One shoulder higher than the other
- Rounded shoulders
- Tilted pelvis
- Short leg
- Forward head and neck
SYMPTOMS OF A MISALIGNED ATLAS
Once the Atlas and spine have lost its correct alignment, messages carried via the spinal nerves and spinal cord may be disrupted. Specific upper cervical X-rays must be taken to diagnose an Atlas Displacement Complex (ADC). Once the upper cervical spine has lost its correct alignment, a number of symptoms can begin to appear;SCHEDULE consultation
