Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor Central Coast NSW

What is Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic?

The major chiropractic premise:

  • the nervous system has a regulating effect over all bodily functions Image of Atlas Orthogonal
  • interference to nerve function (including brain and peripheral nervous system incorporating peripheral sense organs such as the eyes, ears and concerning smell) can result in poor health
  • the skeletal system, primarily the spine can interfere with the nervous system via joint subluxation, misalignment or misalignment

The AO Chiropractic premise:

  • the first and second vertebrae in the neck should line up with the skull (occiput) at right angles or orthogonally.
  • if they are not orthogonal, subsequent imbalance of body structure will eventuate due to compensatory changes.
  • compensatory changes are affected by nervous system interference, irritation or dysfunction.
  • this may lead to poor organ function, muscle spasm causing shoulder or pelvic girdle distortion, over time, if not corrected
How the Instrument Works

Uniqueness of instrument adjusting

  • Dr Sweat adjusted by hand for over 20 years, so he would be the last to claim that it does not get results. He then switched to instrument for the correction of atlas problems. I have offered up some points to consider about instrument adjusting
  • an instrument may remove some human variables that exist in hand contacts and thrust variation
  • speeds unattainable by voluntary muscular contraction are produced efficiently
  • the correction occurs within the normal range of motion of the vertebra, and thus differs from manipulation which, by definition, takes the joint (or several joints) beyond the end range of motion.
  • After several prototypes, the instrument today is made from a specific metallic density and activated by a solenoid. That is; a magnetically activated impact on one end of the stylus that transfers to the end in contact with the skin surface. The force generated on the skin is as little as 3 pounds. The movement of the atlas bone has been verified on cineradiographic studies.
