Atlas realignment treatments
Concussions, also known as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), is common in the U.S. and accounts for 80 percent of all traumatic brain injuries each year. Concussions can occur during sports competitions but can also be caused by car accidents, falls, work-related trauma, and criminal assaults. The majority of individuals recover from a concussion within a few days or weeks. However, some people, especially adolescents, develop long-term problems known as Post-Concussion Syndrome. Symptoms can include headaches, brain fog, sleep disruption, and dizziness.
Dr. Scott Bender is the first Atlas Realignment specialist in the state of Connecticut. At the Connecticut Spine and Health Center, Dr. Bender utilizes current treatments and research for successful treatment of cranio-cervical injuries which contribute to Post-Concussion Syndrome.
Research and experience show that all patients receiving Stereotactic Cervical Alignment (SCALE) treatments (the Atlas Realignment procedure) reported significant improvements with 53 percent experiencing complete recovery. In all, 84 percent of patients experienced complete or near complete resolution of their pain and neck related complications.
(The Atlas Realignment technique, also known as Atlas Orthogonal, is a spinal healthcare program developed by Dr. Roy Sweat in the late 1960s based on scientific and biomechanical procedures. Dr. Sweat is considered by many to be one of the world’s foremost authorities on the cervical spine. After years of extensive research, he developed a non-invasive, precision instrument to restore structural integrity from cervical vertebral malposition. The percussion instrument achieves postural restoration without manipulation or surgery. This precision treatment reduces cervical spine misalignment and its related symptomatology.)
