What Is Atlas Orthogonal?
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is a technically advanced, scientific, revolutionary procedure that has been refined over the past 63 years. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic differs from traditional chiropractic with a gentle, light force instrument adjustment to the Atlas bone.
Your spine is your pillar of life. The Atlas bone is at the top of the pillar and therefore the most important link to the rest of your spine. The Atlas is a 2-ounce bone that supports the base of the skull, which weighs 9-17 pounds. The Atlas supports the weight of the head most efficiently in the orthogonal position. The Atlas Orthogonal procedure is a painless and safe spinal correction, which restores body balance and improves body functions through alignment of the Atlas vertebrae.
