The Atlas Family Health Center uses a revolutionary healthcare procedure called the Advance Orthogonal technique. This chiropractic procedure identifies subtle misalignments of the top vertebrae in the neck, and corrects them using a percussion-wave adjustment. Due to the proximity of these bones to the brain stem area, this procedure can help with a wide variety of conditions.
It has been hypothesized that there is a link between trauma to the upper cervical spine, and the generation of Multiple Sclerosis. It is well known that delivery by caesarian section (C-section) involves much greater forces to the head and neck, and a 2011 study in the Journal of Multiple Sclerosis found that children born by vaginal delivery had a lower risk of developing MS than those born by C-section. Additionally, trauma is thought to affect the fluid flow in and out of the brain. Another 2011 study titled The possible role of cranio-cervical trauma and abnormal CSF hydrodynamics in the genesis of multiple Sclerosis found abnormal fluid dynamics in the upper neck area in patients with MS. Because of these correlations, many patients with Multiple Sclerosis have showed tremendous conditional relief from Advanced Orthogonal care at the Atlas Family Health Center in Columbus, Ohio.
In fact, a 1994 study in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research found that 40 of 44 (91%) MS cases showed symptomatic improvement and no further disease progression during a period of Upper Cervical chiropractic care.
