Atlas Orthogonal: A Non-Invasive Solution for Chronic Pain

Musculoskeletal pain, neurological disorders, brain-based issues, and chronic pain syndromes are some of the most debilitating conditions that can affect an individual’s quality of life.

In some cases, these conditions can be so severe that they can limit a person’s ability to perform everyday activities, and in the most extreme cases, they can even be life-threatening.

Fortunately, there is Atlas Orthogonal, a non-invasive treatment program that has been shown to be effective in the management of these conditions. Read more to find out what Atlas Ortho is, how it works, and the research behind its effectiveness.

What is Atlas Orthogonal?

Atlas Orthogonal focuses on the realignment of the Atlas vertebra – the top bone of the spine – at the craniocervical junction. The Atlas vertebra plays a vital role in the alignment of the entire spinal column and the nervous system, which is responsible for the body’s communication and control.

The treatment involves the use of a gentle, image-guided percussion adjustment to realign the Atlas vertebra. This adjustment is performed using a specialized instrument that delivers a precise force to the Atlas bone, which restores its proper position and function.

How Does Atlas Orthogonal Work?

Atlas Orthogonal works by correcting misalignments in the Atlas vertebra, which can cause various health issues, including musculoskeletal pain, neurological disorders, brain-based issues, and chronic pain.

When the Atlas vertebra is out of alignment, it can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that exit the spinal column. This pressure can lead to nerve interference, which can result in various health issues.

The Orthogonal adjustment works by restoring the proper alignment of the Atlas vertebra, which can relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This, in turn, can help to alleviate the symptoms associated with pain in the back, arms, hips and feet.

What conditions can it help to treat?

Conditions that can be treated with Atlas Orthogonal include:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ syndrome
  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Whiplash injuries

What are the benefits of Atlas Orthogonal?

Atlas Orthogonal has several benefits compared to conventional treatments. First, it is a non-invasive treatment, meaning there is no need for surgery or medication. The gentle, image-guided pulses require no twisting or cracking of the neck.

The Atlas technique has been studied extensively and found to be effective in treating a range of conditions. There are several peer-reviewed, evidence-based studies that support its use.

For example, a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that Atlas Orthogonal was effective in reducing pain and improving function in patients with chronic neck pain. Another study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine found that Atlas was effective in reducing pain and improving quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, why not try Atlas Orthogonal? The treatment is an option for people who are searching for a non-invasive and effective way to manage pain and improve their overall health and well-being.
