Our Goal is to Correct the cause
Many approaches to health focus on the symptoms rather than the root cause of the probelm. Drugs, surgury, and machines like CPAP only give temproary relief, but at Atlas Family Health Center, we identify and correct the root cause first. By correcting the misalignment of the atlas bone, we are able to restore the nerve signals to and from the brain. Once the atlas bone is stable, breathing restoration can begin if necessary for you.
The Advanced Orthogonal Technique
The Advnced Orthogonal technique is one of the most specific and the most gentle ways to adjust the upper cervical spine. With this precision approach, Dr. Neidenthal is able to get the atlas and the body into proper alignment with no twisting, cracking or popping of the neck. With a focus on holding the alignment, Dr. Neidenthal is able to make longer term changes with less adjusting.
A careful and complete neurologic and postural evaluation is performed to determine if there is nerve interference in the upper neck. Dr. Neidenthal focuses on nerve interference in the craniocervical junction, which is the joints between the atlas bone and the skull, a sensitive neurological area often overlooked by other providers.
Unique upper cervical X-rays are taken to anlyse your specific bone stucture and individual misalignment. These X-rays are carefully analyzed and measurements are taken to calculate your settings for the upper cervical correction.
Once your X-rays are anayzed by Dr. Neidenthal, a highly specific correction can be made to correct your upper cervical spine. Using the Advanced Orthogonal Percussion Adjusting Instrument, a percussive sound wave is used to gently shift the atlas bone back into its proper position. This allows the brain to send proper signals to the body, restoring function, reducing pain, and allowing the body to naturally heal.
The correction of the misalignment is a critical step toward your recovery, but it is only the begining of your improvement. Once you upper cervical spine has been stabilized, Dr. Neidenthal will take a deeper look at your breathing and posture using a specialized approach. This propels you to maximum recovery and vitality.
