A misaligned spinal cord can cause a number of different problems for patients. That’s why we here at Prestege Health believe in providing exceptional chiropractic services to people in the Fort Lauderdale area.

While a number of our chiropractic services are popular, Atlas Adjustment is a good option for people who are exhibiting symptoms of neck-back misalignment: headaches, backaches, and so on. By speaking with an orthogonal specialist, you’ll be able to pinpoint the source of the problem.

What Is Atlas Adjustment?

Atlas Adjustment, also referred to as Atlas Orthogonal, is a spinal adjustment technique designed to ensure that the cranio-cervical junction is properly aligned. When you get this chiropractic adjustment technique from a Board Certified specialist, they’ll realign the Atlas using special equipment.

Atlas Adjustment is a holistic technique that’s designed to improve quality of life in a number of different ways. For instance, The University of Chicago ran a study finding that Atlas Adjustment lowered blood pressure in hypertensive patients who had a misaligned cervical spine.

If you’re having an issue and are wondering if atlas adjustment would help, it’s a good idea to speak with a Board Certified professional. They’ll let you know what Atlas Adjustment can do, who it’s best for, and more.

What is the Difference Between NUCCA and Atlas Orthogonal?

NUCCA and Atlas Orthogonal are both chiropractic techniques that focus on the atlas vertebra, aligning your upper cervical to improve alignment throughout your body.

The biggest difference between the two techniques is simple: Atlas orthogonists always use an adjusting instrument to ensure spinal alignment. NUCCA specialists, on the other hand, use their hands to realign your spinal cord.
