These are qualified chiropractors who have undertaken further training in theory, radiography, assessment and technique relating to the upper neck. An Atlas chiropractor will assess the top vertebrae in the neck (C1) and if it is found to be “out” of alignment, they will perform an adjustment to re-align its position.
Atlas Orthogonal (AO) is a Chiropractic technique that addresses problems arising from the upper neck (cervical spine). The upper neck is an extremely delicate area with a high proportion of the bodies nerves sending and receiving messages located here. Atlas Chiropractic is a technique used to assess the upper neck and its relationship to the cranium above and remaining spine below. If there is misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae it could contribute to disturbances in other areas of the body, potentially leading to various ailments and health related issues. Upper Cervical Chiropractors use their techniques to attempt to realign the vertebrae of the upper neck to with the goals of allowing the body to function optimally.
