Learn what to expect on your first visit to Atlas Chiropractic

Step One

A detailed consultation enables Dr. Schwartz to fully understand the history of each individual patient. Next, a postural examination is performed to pinpoint the unique three-dimensional posture of each individual.

Step Two

If it is determined that a postural distortion (a spinal misalignment) is present, very specific three dimensional X-ray films are taken. The detailed analysis of these films calculates a precise, customized adjustment that will impact the whole spine.

Step Three

The Atlas Orthogonal adjustment itself is performed to the upper neck. Patients typically report that they feel no pain and are in no discomfort. The amount of pressure of the percussive wave is just enough to slightly dimple the skin. Unlike standard chiropractic treatments, there is NO cracking or twisting of the neck or spine in an Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical adjustment.

Once the initial adjustment is made, follow-up X-ray films are taken to determine if the adjustment is complete. The post X-ray analysis determines if the atlas was properly realigned to its neutral position directly underneath the center of the skull. Also, measurement of the neck is calculated to determine if the head and atlas are balanced appropriately.

Further adjusting will be necessary if proper structural balance was not achieved. This is verified by the post X-ray film analysis.

Since each individual presents a unique history and postural imbalance, follow-up care will be discussed on the visit following the initial adjustment. This gentle, meticulous approach has helped to heal thousands of people with a wide range of misalignment conditions. At Atlas Chiropractic PC, we do not treat a specific disease or condition. By restoring proper body balance, we enable the body itself to minimize or heals the disease or condition.
