Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Method

The AO Method utilizes a highly advanced table mounted percussion instrument to gently and precisely align the first vertebra of the spine to balance the head and spinal column, this is referred to as Upper Cervical Specific Adjustments.

There is no twisting, popping, or cracking. Precise adjusting vectors are obtained utilizing digital x-ray analysis which enables the Doctor to adjust the Atlas vertebra (the top or first vertebra in the neck) with a very specific line of drive and extremely low force.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
