Juneau Osteopath - The gentle approach called the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique is used so as to restore balance while even stimulation the natural healing abilities using a corrective procedure on the upper cervical region of the spine.
As with nearly all chiropractic methods, there are no cracking and twisting with the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique. The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique not just enhances spine-related problems, but also provides relief for various issues, like for example asthma, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches and arthritis.
Certified chiropractic doctors who practice the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique have, in addition to at least six years of education, special training considered necessary to correct misaligned spines making use of an Atlas Orthogonal percussion instrument.
Just as they would typically examine patients, chiropractors utilize X-rays in order to diagnose patients prior to using the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique. For the regions that require correction, an X-ray could provide a clearer picture. Atlas Orthogonists receive training in the use of X-ray studies, and never need X-rays needlessly. The X-rays are used as guides to the correct places where the Atlas Orthogonal percussion tool is to be used. The device works on the affected parts making use of a soft pressure so as to restore balance to the body.
The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique is based on the premise that if the atlas bone is off its natural alignment, then the nerve impulses and blood flow to the brain through the spinal column is subject to interference. Misalignment of the atlas bone can effect the spine to cause problems in the shoulders, pelvis, neck and back. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique practitioners say that the pain can even extends into the legs.
People after an Atlas Orthogonal spinal correction will experience various signs that seem to get better and worse. They might experience fatigue with stiff, sore muscles and they then may feel better. According to chiropractors who use the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique, these symptoms indicate that the body is recovering. Depending on a variety of factors, such as the severity of the misalignment and the individual's health issues, recovery times will vary.
Patients who feel pain are likely feeling the effects of the body's efforts to heal itself and some individuals may not feel whatever pains during the process.
