Caring for your column of life

Your spine is vital to your health and well-being – its misalignment can lead to a number of related health problems ranging from constant headaches to chronic spinal decay.

The vital atlas bone

In the early 1900s Dr B J Palmer discovered that the atlas bone, at the top of your spine, is responsible for both the position of your head and the resulting alignment of your spine. Atlas Orthogonal is the treatment of the spine with specific attention to this vital atlas vertebrae.

Painless transformation

It was revolutionised in 1982 by eminent spine specialist Dr Roy Sweat. Unlike conventional adjustment – which requires painful manipulation and pressure applied by doctors’ hands – AO adjusts the atlas bone with a percussive soundwave instrument. It is safe and painless.

Precision technology

Dr Sweat worked with the Georgia Institute of Technology to design an advanced AO percussion instrument and x-ray vector program. The instrument is now in its seventh generation and treatment is more precise and effective than ever.

An innovation in healthcare

Every year around the world, millions of people benefit from the gentle, natural healing of AO. It is now taught at five US Chiropractic Colleges, and practised in six countries and more than 600 practices worldwide. Medical doctors, neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, dentists and other chiropractors refer their patients to Atlas Orthognists.
