Our practice treats a variety of conditions, from chronic low back and neck pain to acute injuries, such as an auto accident or sports injury. We have had great success helping people get rid of headaches, shoulder pain, hip pain, and knee pain as well.
To help you understand the value of these techniques, read the following:
** ATLAS ORTHOGONAL TECHNIQUE
Atlas Orthogonal is a little known and very PRECISE chiropractic technique that may relieve or completely eliminate hundreds of different kinds of conditions via the correction of the position of the top vertebra of the spinal column, the ATLAS, or C1 vertebra. The atlas is a 2 oz., doughnut shaped bone, that completely encircles the brain stem. If the atlas is tilted, rotated, or shifted even a micro degree out of its proper position, it can cause cord compression in the brain stem area, reducing vital nerve flow from the brain to different parts of the body.
When the Atlas is misaligned, it forces the entire spine and pelvis to twist. This results in body imbalance, strain and tension on muscles from head to toe, and a shortened leg. Because the atlas surrounds the brain stem, it can also reduce, delay, or distort messages sent from the brain to the body and back again, affecting the entire central nervous system, which governs the thousands of functions that keep the body operational.
The long term result of reduced nerve flow and body imbalance is degeneration of different areas of the body, causing mild to severe pain in various areas of the body, lowered resistance to illness, organ dysfunction, loss of mobility in limbs, and ultimately disease.
For nerve energy to flow freely throughout the body, the atlas must be positioned exactly perpendicular to the spine. In over 90% of studied cases, when the atlas is out of its proper position, vertebrae below the atlas are also misaligned. They require an ATLAS adjustment to restore their alignment.
An Atlas Orthogonal adjustment involves determining the normal, perpendicular position of the atlas by an intensive mathematical analysis of the pre x-rays, then correcting the atlas by moving the bone into that exact position or as close to it as possible.
The repositioning of the bone is done using an instrument. The procedure is completely "underwhelming" to patients, because they feel nothing as the atlas is moved precisely back into its original position. They are often surprised how anti-climactic it is until, over a period of time, they feel their bodies beginning to heal.
The mathematically precise repositioning of the atlas is the basis for much of the relief experienced by people in treatment, who have conditions that ordinarily do not respond to traditional methods.
The procedure cures nothing, but simply corrects the atlas misalignment, which restores body balance, and the ability of the central nervous system to govern the body properly.
** ACTIVATOR METHODS CHIROPRACTIC TECHNIQUE
Low Force... Very Specific... Safe for ALL Ages
Activator is a full spine adjusting technique. To address spinal joint dysfunction, we use an instrument called the Activator. This unique hand-held instrument was scientifically designed to give you a very specific, "low force" adjustment.
The Activator instrument delivers a controlled, light, and fast thrust, without causing undue strain to patients.
Activator adjustments are so quick and controlled, your body's muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and exact adjustment.
** NEUROMUSCULAR RE-EDUCATION
Neuromuscular Re-education, which is a hands-on approach to the evaluation and structural/functional treatment of the ADHESIONS that occur in muscles, connective tissue, fascia, and tendons wherever damage & inflammation have occurred. These adhesions can permanently limit both strength and range of motion, and can lead to chronic pain. Neuromuscular Re-education helps to release these.
We have seen some exciting results with people with chronic problems in KNEES, SHOULDERS, NECKS, LOW BACKS, WRISTS, and ANKLES.
Our goal is to do MORE than just take away your pain - we work to help you restore BODY BALANCE, which can not only relieve pain and improve joint mobility, but can actually help you improve your overall health!
Our office is located on the south-west corner of Main St. and Valley Pkwy., in the shopping center on the WEST side of Lewisville High School. There is a Burger King on the corner - we are in the same parking lot as the Burger King. (Between CVS Drug and Abundant Life Health Food Store.)
Our mission is to provide affordable, high-quality care to people of all ages. We strive to not only correct a person's health problems, but to educate and enlighten people so that they do not encounter similar problems in the future.
