Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic
The atlas orthogonal chiropractic technique is a specialized type of chiropractic adjustment. A traditional type of chiropractic adjustment uses manual manipulation of the joint using the doctor's hands, but the atlas orthogonal technique is a gentle, pain free instrument adjustment.
The technique was invented by Dr. Roy Sweat in Atlanta, Georgia and is used by chiropractors all over the world. The atlas is the first vertebrae in the neck at the base of the skull and is the focus of our adjustment. When the atlas is realigned correctly, using our specific x-ray analyzed approach, the results can be quite effective.
Part of the benefit of the therapy is to relieve various symptoms including: neck pain, headaches, back pain and many other types of pain and discomfort. The cervical spine, the first seven bones in your neck, are a vital part of your health and wellness. The Atlas, being the first vertebrae, helps realign the rest of the spine when adjusted correctly. Two of the main signs that the atlas is out of alignment include the length of the left and right legs will be slightly different. This difference could be anywhere from a quarter inch to over a full inch causing discomfort throughout the neck, low back and the rest of the spine. The other sign can be tenderness to palpation at the base of the skull and around the atlas on the left and right sides of the upper neck in the soft tissue.
At Integrative Health and Injury Center our doctors have over 35 years of experience treating patients with the atlas orthogonal technique. We have helped thousands of patients since the inception of our clinic. Our goal is to help as many patients as possible relieve their pain and discomfort and get back to their lives doing the activities they love.
Dr. Peter Gariboldi, DC graduated from LA College of Chiropractic and has been doing the technique for 30+ years. His son, Dr. Matthew Gariboldi, NMD is a naturopathic doctor and has learned the technique over the last 5 years. Together at their clinic, Integrative Health and Injury Center they offer a comprehensive approach to health and wellness that includes chiropractic, naturopathic and allopathic methods.
If you are in need of a physician that knows how to treat the whole person and wants to see you achieve your health goals then you have come to the right place. At our clinic we do not charge for expensive chiropractic packages that you must pay for upfront. Our goal is to show you how effective the atlas orthogonal technique can be and that you only want to adjust the atlas when it is truly out of alignment.
We do not believe in patients coming in 2-3x a week for treatment unless they are in an acute pain situation after a motor vehicle accident or some other severe injury occurs. We want you to feel better and pain free in as little visits as possible and know that if you knock your neck out down the road we will be available to help you at that time.
If you are interested in setting up an appointment with our clinic please call us at (602) 992-3911. We are open 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) and would be happy to assist you in any way that we can. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
