Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic: A natural and gentle approach to relief.
Here at Schuster Chiropractic, we provide a different kind of care. The unique Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic approach uses strictly non-manual means to adjust and align the vertebrae. This leads to a much more comfortable, natural solution to treating symptoms ranging from chronic migraines to whiplash.
An Atlas Orthogonist (orthog’ ah nist) is a doctor in the field of chiropractic care with training in the structure, function and biomechanics of the upper cervical spine. The structural balance of the human body is maintained by the precise interaction of the muscles, which are under the control of the nervous system, permitting the skeletal framework to move and flex in a relatively unrestricted manner. Much of this intricate system of nerves is housed and protected by the spinal vertebrae. Unfortunately, these same spinal vertebrae are often the underlying cause of pain, loss of mobility and uncomfortable sensations when they are shifted or out of proper alignment. This condition is known as subluxation (sub luk-sa’ shun).
Since the human body needs to function in a largely upright position, its spinal column must be able to support its ever shifting weight as the body walks, runs, bends and lifts. The normal curve of the spine is well suited to the task of comfortably keeping the body’s center of gravity properly positioned over its supporting legs. When the spine is curved abnormally because the spinal vertebrae have slipped out of proper alignment, even by the smallest degree, profound consequences occur, which if left untreated, affect the health of the entire body. This is especially true when misalignment occurs in the neck (cervical spine).
Although chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions, their care of the affected area often results in dramatic improvements in the health and comfort of other parts of the body, not generally thought to be associated with the spine.
Regardless of the cause, when the critical alignment of the spinal column is disturbed, nature tries immediately to repair and heal the damage. The Atlas Orthogonal chiropractor’s specialized training uniquely equips the doctor to aid and speed up that healing process with advanced, natural methods, which are safe, effective and generally comfortable. Here at Schuster Chiropractic, we welcome any inquiries about the Atlas Orthogonal method and how it can bring natural relief to you.
