Atlas Orthogonal

The top two vertebrae, the Atlas and Axis are especially vulnerable to injury or misalignment because they are the most mobile segments of the spine. If neglected, an Upper Cervical misalignment can lead to irreversible spinal degeneration and chronic ill health.

Atlas Specific Chiropractic bases our care on the universal law of cause and effect. For every effect or symptom (physical or mental), there must be a cause. Upper Cervical doctors focus their efforts on locating and correcting interference to the nervous system that may be the cause of your health condition. Correcting this interference can allow the body to heal itself naturally without the use of potentially harmful drugs or surgery.

An Upper Cervical Correction is gentle and there is no forceful jerking, twisting, or pulling on the neck. The correction is applied using an exact and controlled technique that allows the head, neck, and spine to return to their proper positions. This restores balance to the body and removes the interference.

Cold Laser

Cold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to help reduce underlying inflammation to promote healing process.

Therapeutic effects of cold laser include:

  • anti-inflammatory action – reduces swelling
  • pain reduction
  • acceleration of collagen synthesis in damaged tissue – faster wound healing
  • reduction of fibrous tissue formation

The Activator Method is a type of low-force chiropractic technique used to treat various types of back and neck pain, as well as extremity complaints.

This treatment method uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument, which is an alternative to traditional spinal manipulation.

The instrument generates a quick, low-force impulse applied to a specific joint. The applied force is localized and does not put the joint any bending or twisting position.
