Has anyone here ever tried Atlas Orthogonal?

New here so bare with me. Ever since the issues I had, I was considering this procedure. Had myself looked at, the said they found a few things which could be corrected with this procedure. After reading reviews, I was convinced it was a hoax and I'd be a patient "for life" at a very expensive rate, so I opted not to go. Curious to know if anyone had any experience with this and can provide feedback...

    but if you are having clear disc related problems, I would stay clear of that treatment until you talk to your doctor.
    Atlas Orthogonal is used by chiropractors and the general consensus here is that once you have disc problems, stay away from chiropractors.

    But, since I have no practical knowledge or reviews of Atlas Orthogonal, I suggest you talk it over with your doctor.

    Thanks! I felt as if this place, which was a Welness place by the way, was trying to lure me into their programs and such with this as well. I'll have to stay away. I already said I am using this as a "last resort" if I can't discover other stuff that may be causing my issues.

  • I agree stay away from chiros they make things worse and are not trained in the atlas and axis.


    I did have my atlas adjusted once and its stayed in place, it was no walk in the park afterward but it did heal my pain which I am very greatful for.


    I would advise researching more and get x rays and scans. the atlas does not show up on mri's so get specific x rays done.


    look up atlas profilax and have a look.


    Many chiros and osteos are just after money and can really cause damage, as before I saw one I never clicked anywhere but after I click all the time.


    all the best

    I have had this type of treatment and I can say that it did help my atlas, but it made the rest of my neck worse.  If you don't have problems in your lower discs it might help you.  My atlas was 12 degrees rotated when I started which made my head feel twisted and off to the side.  He was able to fix that part.
