A Guide to Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic in Decatur

Atlas orthogonal is an effective approach to relieving your pain and discomfort and promoting better well-being, and all without the need for manipulation.

As Dr. Whitney Malina is a certified Atlas Orthogonist, we’re able to offer leading atlas orthogonal chiropractic in Decatur – safely correcting your spine to restore balance and boost your body’s ability to health itself.

What Is Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic?

At the top of your spine is the atlas bone, which is where your head rests. And when this bone is in a straight, normal position (at a right angle) – this is classed as orthogonal.

However, when it’s misaligned, your head may tilt, so your body automatically tries to straighten itself, causing stress throughout your entire spine, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles, and shoulders.

Haven’t you ever wondered what causes so much pain and discomfort in all these places?

Very often, it’s this imbalance in your spinal column that begins with the atlas. This is where atlas orthogonal treatments can help.

How Do Atlas Orthogonal Treatments Work?

Unlike other chiropractic techniques, which involve manipulation, atlas orthogonal chiropractic is a painless, gentle technique that requires no forceful movements or twisting of the back or neck.

Rather, having undergone extensive training, Dr. Whitney Malina is able to carry out the procedure so gently that you may even wonder if you’ve had anything done!

Who Will Benefit from Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic in Decatur?

While muscle aches, headaches, back pain or neck pain are something we treat on a daily basis, atlas orthogonal chiropractic isn’t limited to these areas or conditions alone.

A misaligned spine can block nerve communication between your brain and the rest of your body, which may contribute toward a number of symptoms and conditions.

Therefore, these treatment programs often benefit patients with:

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Asthma
  • Chronic pain or stress
  • Athletic injuries
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Neck and back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Seizures (including epilepsy)
  • Leg and arm numbness
  • Sinus problems

What Can You Expect from Your First Appointment?

At your first consultation, if Dr. Malina feels she can help you, we’ll take specific X-rays so we can establish the best course of treatment and rule out any underlying conditions.

Following the first treatment, it’s normal to experience a number of different changes in your body. This is because your nervous system is adapting to the realignment of your spine.

Any symptoms including soreness, muscle stiffness, sleepiness, or tiredness are positive signs that your body is healing itself. And these symptoms may decrease quickly with time.

How long will you feel the benefits of your treatment for?

Your body will soon regain its normal balance, which means tension in your body will begin to heal. This treatment, combined with our additional therapies, advice on posture and strengthening exercises will help your condition.
