Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Technique

The Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic technique is a gentle, effective approach to renewed health and relief of discomfort without manipulation.

You are probably asking yourself, “Atlas Orthogo… What?”  It’s simple, let me explain. 

Atlas is the top bone of the spine.  It is the vertebrae that the head sits on.  Orthogonal means at right angles, or square.  The atlas should be sitting level, or square, on the cervical spine (neck), and the head should be square on the atlas.  It basically asks the question: Is your head on straight?

Atlas Normal

Atlas Subluxated
Is your head on straight?

When the atlas is misaligned (subluxated) it causes the head to tilt.  The body instinctively tries to straighten the head up while keeping the head over the feet (center of gravity). This causes stress throughout the spine, the shoulders, the pelvis, the hips, the knees, and the ankles.

Subluxations (misalignments) are often deceiving. Even though symptomatic pain may appear in the lower back, legs, shoulders, arms or other parts of the body, their cause is very often located in the cervical spine (neck).

How does this unique method differ from General Chiropractic treatment?  One of the most obvious differences is the gentle way in which the doctor works.  No strenuous manipulation is needed.  The Atlas Orthogonal (A.O.) Technique utilizes an adjusting instrument developed by Dr. Roy W. Sweat with the aid of engineers at Georgia Tech University.  The precision of the A.O. instrument allows for an adjustment that requires such a light force that patients, who may expect more forceful manipulations as part of their treatment, find it hard to believe anything effective has been accomplished.  Their doubts and fears quickly vanish when their pain and discomfort disappear.


Atlas Orthogonal  Instrument

The Atlas Orthogonal  Instrument was designed to deliver a precise chiropractic adjustment based on the specific misalignment findings from your x-rays.  Technically, the instrument delivers a mechanical impulse through a metal stylus by the mean of a pressure controlled actuator.
