Frequently Asked Questions

1. WHAT IS ATLAS ORTHOGONAL?

The atlas, weighing only two ounces, is the first bone in the cervical spine that supports the weight of your head being about nine to seventeen pounds.  The term “orthogonal” means “intersecting or lying at right angles.” The goal of the Atlas Orthogonist is to align the head and neck to be perpendicular to one another, which will in turn, collectively correct spinal misalignments.  This method uses a percussion instrument to deliver a very specific, minimal force to restore health and balance to the misaligned spine.  Through correcting spinal abnormalities, the body can eliminate spine and nerve irritation relieving pain and discomfort without the use of drugs or surgery.

The Atlas Orthogonal technique is a specialty within the field of chiropractic done completely without spinal manipulation.  Absolutely NO PAIN is associated after the correction is taken place.  In some cases, patients report changes in sensation without realizing that the adjustment has even taken place.


2. WHAT IS AN ATLAS ORTHOGONIST?

An Atlas Orthogonist is a licensed Doctor in the field of Chiropractic who, in addition to six or more years of education, is trained extensively to use a light percussion instrument to correct spinal misalignment. The Atlas Orthogonist requires post-graduate training dedicated to studying the structure, function, and biomechanics of the upper cervical spine.  Through this precise method, the doctor is able to speed up the healing process safe, effectively, and it is generally painless.  Our clinic exclusively uses the Atlas Orthogonal system of health care to deliver care to our patients without any forceful movements or twisting of the neck or back.


3. HOW DOES ATLAS ORTHOGONAL DIFFER FROM OTHER TREATMENTS?

Atlas orthogonal obviously differs from other techniques because there is no manipulation or twisting or cracking of the spine involved.  The treatments only require a minimal light touch to the affected area.  The instrument may look intimidating, but there is absolutely no protrusion taken place with the stylus.  Your doubts and fears will disappear as quickly as your pain and discomfort.  Come and experience this gentle, effective, and painless treatment for yourself and tell someone after you have experienced the results of Atlas Orthogonal care.  Precision spinal care can eliminate the need for medication and surgery in many cases.  Our motto is “Chiropractic first, side effecting drugs second, and irreversible surgery last.”


4.  WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?

After the first Atlas Orthogonal spinal correction has taken place, you may experience a variety of changes within your body.  These are due to your nervous system responding to the structural corrections.  Symptoms are a positive sign that healing is taking place.  In order to heal, the body may go through a series of repair and may be expressed as:

Don’t be concerned if the pain changes or is moved to another part of your body.  Symptoms may decrease immediately.  However, the length of time it takes to stabilize these conditions depends on the degree of misalignment and the severity of the condition.  Please inform the doctor of any and all changes.  Remember, pain is a sign that the body is working, and any changes can be part of the healing process.


5. WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM ATLAS ORTHOGONAL CARE?

Atlas Orthogonal spinal corrections can be beneficial to you and your family and aid in the healthy growth and development of your children.  Chiropractic generally specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions, but contrary to popular belief, chiropractors have the education and technology to treat more than back pain and neck pain.  Atlas Spinal Care of Folsom is dedicated to correcting the Atlas Subluxation Complex, which is the misalignment of the bone structure of the head and neck.  The misalignment can block vital communications between the brain and body causing pain, stress, and tension.  The stress and tension can affect all physical and even mental activity of body.  By relieving the Atlas Subluxation Complex, we have had positive results with such conditions as:


  • Scoliosis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Seizures, including Epileptic
  • Leg and arm numbness
  • Sinus problems
  • Allergies
  • Dizziness
  • Bell's Palsy
  • Horner's Syndrome
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Asthma
  • Chronic pain or stress
  • Athletic injuries

News Release in the Media

A look at some sites that published our article.

Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic has always been very important to us, and we had the opportunity to share our thoughts about it with a local writer.  Our interview was picked up by a bunch of TV, radio, and newspaper websites all over the U.S.!

We were thrilled that we get to advocate for the Atlas Orthogonal treatment and help so many people understand chiropractic is not only about manual manipulation (twisting and cracking the spine) for just neck pain and back pain. It can help with many other symptoms and overall well-being. 

It even landed in the U.K.!

My interview was featured on CBS in Cleveland, ABC in Hawaii, in the Chicago Daily Herald, and even a station in the UK!

Why do we need Body Balance?

Why is it that the foundation of the building needs to be leveled, or a car needs to be aligned?  In both cases, alignment or balance is key.  A building may stand without a level foundation, but with time, the walls will begin to crack and eventually collapse.  A car may be functional if not aligned, but with time, the stress placed on one or two of the tires will cause the treads to wear off quicker than the others.  Being in alignment or having a level foundation is essential to health and longevity of the structure or the object.

People too need balance.  When the body’s center of gravity, the core, or spine is not balanced, the weight of the body is distributed unevenly causing wear out prematurely.  Short-term effects may be pain and discomfort; however, long-term effects can lead to joint degeneration, disc problems, nerve irritation, or chronic pain.  Do you ever wonder why most people only get one hip replaced?  It is not because that one hip is older than the other one, but it is simply because one is carrying more physical stress or more of the gravitational force upon it causing it to degenerate quicker than the other.
