Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Adjustment
At Upper Cervical Wellness Center, Dr. Rion Peddy utilizes the Atlas Orthogonal technique to gently correct the misalignments in our cervical spines, more specifically, our atlas and axis (C1 and C2). If one of the upper two bones becomes misaligned, two things happen. First, it irritates or interferes with the brain stem and reduces brain-to-body communication. Wherever those messages were intended to go, whether it's your foot, kidney, pancreas, heart, lungs, eyes or ears, it is going to malfunction due to neurovascular insult. Secondly consider the upper spine a kinetic chain, connected from the head to toe. If either of the top two bones becomes misaligned the rest of the body must compensate or adapt, resulting in total "body imbalance." In the end your health and physical body will be compromised. This is called an Atlas Subluxation.
This is where the Atlas Orthogonal instrument, and Dr. Peddy, come in. This instrument was designed to deliver a very precise adjustment, via percussion, to the vertebrae. Dr. Peddy will place the stylus, based on your specific misalignment, in the appropriate spot to correct your subluxation. This is a gentle, effective treatment that does not employ any physical thrusts. As non-invasive and subtle as the treatment may seem, the Atlas Orthogonal adjustment can help your body function properly and pain free, resolving many health conditions!
