Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Treatment

What Is Atlas Orthogonality?

Atlas orthogonality is a treatment that corrects misalignment of the spine, specifically, the atlas. The atlas is the first vertebra at the base of the skull. It’s set at 90 degrees to the skull and neck when it’s in the ideal orthogonal position. This supports the skull and allows the entire spine to align properly. It’s a painless procedure that uses a percussion instrument to perform the adjustment.

Symptoms of Atlas Misalignment

Atlas misalignment can trigger a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Muscle aches and stiffness
  • Headaches, usually at the base of the skull and radiating to one side of the head
  • Migraines that cause throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, and visual symptoms
  • Vertigo
  • Fainting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Facial pain or palsy
  • Crackling sounds at the base of the neck when turning your head
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Shoulder pain

  • Brain congestion
  • High blood pressure
  • Vagus nerve disruption that affects the heart, stomach, lungs, and digestion
  • Dysautonomia

Neck Pain and Atlas Misalignment

Neck pain is common when someone has an atlas misalignment because the problem interferes with the point where the neck and head joint together. Misalignment distorts the flow of the messages that flow from the brain down the spinal cord. Aligning the atlas reactivates the natural flow in the body to perform optimally.

Atlas orthogonal treatment also improves the mobility of the head and creates a wider range of motion and flexibility in the neck, keeping your nervous system healthy and performing at optimal levels. The treatment alleviates the stiffness that is often a problem when the atlas is misaligned, so you’re not only able to move your head more easily, you don’t have to worry about secondary issues such as headaches caused by neck stiffness.

The atlas is responsible for protecting the brain stem. When properly positioned and square with the head and the rest of the neck, your nervous system can perform at its highest level. Problems with the atlas cause symptoms around the head and neck and can also affect the entire body.

This reorients the atlas bone and the cervical spine, allowing for improved nervous system function. It opens the line of communication between the brain and the nervous system.

After treatment, people experience improved mobility, relief from pain, increased energy, better sleep, and more. In addition to relieving specific symptoms linked to misalignment of the atlas, they feel better overall. Their body is better able to heal, and their well-being improves.
