  • What is Atlas?

    Atlas is the first spine vertebra, which together with the axis (the second spine vertebra) make the wrist which connect scalp and spine. Which is the function of atlas? Atlas, is not only carrying the scalp, but is responsible for balance and controlling the spine and skeleton. The Atlas is more or less rotated which cause many health problems to many people.

  • What is adjustment of Atlas?

    Putting of Atlas, in his natural position. Atlas specialist doctor is educated , with specially constructed device for reposition of the Atlas, to make the Atlas go back to his natural anatomic position. Treatment is only one and absolutely harmless.


Here are some of the health problems which turn mild or disappear as a result of positioning of the Atlas:
What can be done to fight migraine and headache apart from swallowing pills? Headaches in their various forms are one of the most common complaints. All of us have suffered from headaches at one time or another, even if only occasionally. For 15-20% of the population, 2-4% of them children, headaches are not merely an occasional symptom, but have become unwelcome companions which, despite all attempts to get rid of them, return chronically, so much so that many people start to refer to them as "my headache." The maximum incidence of headaches is reached between the ages of 35 and 45. Women suffer from them 3 times more commonly than men. Headaches have both psychological and emotional components, identified by an alteration of the blood flow to and from the cranium. Conventional medicine attempts to control this deficit with the aid of chemical drugs. Further determining factors for headaches may include reduced liver function, excessive intoxication of the intestine and the body in general (toxemia), heavy metal poisoning as well as acidosis, i.e. an excessively low pH-value. The psychological/emotional component associated in literature with headaches can be summarized as follows: constant anxiety or fear, difficulties in "abandoning oneself" or "letting go," fear of"losing one's head," always being "on the alert;" the tendency to think too much and attempting to control every situation. Unforeseen events and unexpected encounters are also sources of stress, as is the tendency to plan everything, to take on great responsibilities even though it negatively affects one's own peace of mind, and to be perfectionist and hypercritical. The various classifications of headache The difference between migraine and headache lies in the fact that migraine affects one side of the head, while ordinary headaches are generalized through the entire skull. In the medical literature, cephalalgia is subdivided as follows: Tension-type headaches or tension cephalalgia are the most common form of headache, with a high percentage rate of about 70%. The remaining 30% are divided into: Migraine, without aura: approximately 85% of all migraine attacks. Characterized by nausea, with or without vomiting. The attack may be violent or throbbing, or dull and constant like "a weight of many kilos on the head." The pain is exacerbated by movement, coughing, sneezing, exertion and light. The sufferer generally prefers to lie down in the dark and away from any noise. The duration can range from a few hours to three days. There are generally no warning signs, and the pain appears on one side of the skull before quickly radiating through the rest of
Dizziness, impaired balance and sudden fainting spells The upper spinal column is where most of the proprioceptors, which control body orientation and thus balance, are located. In combination with the eyes and the balance organs they allow the body to maintain a stable, safe position in the surrounding space. If this balance is impaired, the patient's perception of the motion or the surrounding environment becomes inadequate. The mechanism responsible for balance is extremely dynamic, and in fact several stimuli and pieces of information are gathered and processed at once, in order to generate the appropriate impulses and send them to the muscles to keep the body balanced. These impulses then combine with those which control voluntary movements. Stability and the related sense of balance are the result of a precise balancing of forces. If these forces do not work together in a synchronized and coordinated way compensatory problems arise, resulting in loss of balance, dizziness and in extreme cases total lack of spatial orientation and fainting. Why does this happen? The complex mechanism that controls balance is yet to be fully understood, as it entails a highly dynamic correlation between many signals. If for any reason these signals do not reach their destination in a synchronized, coordinated manner for processing, the "brain" is unable to provide the entire musculature with the correct neurological response and thus to keep the body in balance. To give an easy-to-understand example, the body's balance system can be compared to the familiar GPS navigator: the position of the GPS navigation system on Earth is determined by the calculation of the separation distances of at least three satellites. When the device receives signals from several GPS satellites at the same time, the route is calculated and shown precisely. But it's different when the signal of several satellites is lost. Navigation becomes uncertain, until the connection to all the satellites is lost and the GPS navigator doesn't know where it is anymore! In the body this situation is tantamount to fainting. Medical explanations for dizziness and impaired balance If a patient complains of dizziness, doctors undertake a number of examinations. First of all they measure the blood pressure; if this is okay, the patient is sent to an ENT (Ear-Nose-Throat) specialist, who examines them for ear or throat infections – the balance organ is in fact associated with the inner ear, and so an infection in this area can have negative effects on balance. Examinations are also carried out to distinguish between dizziness with a central or peripheral cause, e.g. rotary vertigo, vestibular vertigo or vertebrogenic vertigo (originating in the spine). Quite often impaired balance may be due to a shift in the so called "otoliths". These are tiny "pebbles" in our hearing system which can be repositioned by appropriate maneuvers. If the examination does not yield a conclusive diagnosis, the patient is referred to an ophthalmologist for further investigation, as the eye plays a very important role in balance. If this examination is also inconclusive, a magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) is normally carried out, to rule out the existence of brain tumors or other alterations in the brain. If these tests are also negative, then from the doctor's point of view the patient is regarded as structurally sound and medications are prescribed, which occasionally bring about an improvement, but in most cases leave things as they were: the patient will have to learn to live with the dizziness. For some people, the complaints are so severe that with time, in addition to dizziness and loss of balance, they become emotionally unstable. This can cause them to withdraw from society. Often, they even have to give up work, especially when their job requires balance. Why would someone with no obvious organic causes suffer from dizziness or loss of balance? In these cases the blame is often placed on psychological reasons, although they rarely have anything to do with it! So where do the dizziness, the loss of balance or the feeling of "walking on cotton wool" come from? An alternative explanation for dizziness and impaired balance As already explained, the functioning of the balance system is highly dynamic and complex, and a very large amount of information must be processed simultaneously. If the necessary signals and information reach the "brain" either too late or not at all, then – just as in a pocket calculator – processes are regarded as false because the factors needed for calculation are either missing or wrong. N.B.: The calculator isn't faulty. It is the factors/digits entered in the calculation that are either insufficient or simply wrong. The calculator cannot know this! The Atlas – like the jaw, in part – plays a key role when it deviates from its ideal position in the development of balance disturbances, when the dizziness is not pathogenic in origin. The Atlas is in fact anatomically positioned very close to the balance organ, as are the condyles of the lower jaw. As already explained elsewhere on this website, misalignment of the Atlas displacement can place pressure on various nerves and blood vessels which pass through the area surrounding the first vertebra. In addition to vascular compression, people suffering from dizziness or a sense of imbalance are usually found to suffer from an extreme contraction of the neck and shoulder muscles. These muscle contractions are often the direct consequence of misalignment of the Atlas, but may also be triggered by a state of emotional anxiety and above all by stress. So what actually happens with the 80% of the balance sensors (proprioceptors) that are located precisely in this contracted area? In some cases the dizziness vanishes immediately after the correction of the first cervical vertebra, thanks also to the careful massage of the surrounding muscles during the treatment. In other cases the dizziness disappears or improves over time, once the body has made the necessary adjustments during the regeneration phase. A few patients diagnosed with "Ménière's disease" have found after the treatment that their complaints were not caused by such a rare disease but simply by imbalance, caused by a misaligned Atlas. For several patients the imbalance promptly disappears after treatment! If there are no organic causes for dizziness or loss of balance, realignment of the Atlas is potentially the most effective treatment for curing complaints of this kind for good, as well as for unsteady gait and the feeling of "walking on cotton wool." Experience also shows how in people who for no apparent reason suffered from dizziness and fainting fits, especially after tilting their head back, after the Atlas adjustment these complaints ceased. This result can presumably be attributed to the vertebral artery being released from abnormal compression by the Atlas-ring during the backward movement of the neck.
The effect of the Atlas vertebra on scoliosis There are 2 types of scoliosis: congenital and idiopathic (functional). Congenital scoliosis is usually treated by orthopedists and surgeons. Idiopathic scoliosis or functional scoliosis, in contrast, is caused or worsened by misalignment of the Atlas. If the lateral misalignment of the Atlas is severe, the spine may change its shape into an "S" or "C" shape to compensate for the resulting inclined position of the head. As a result of the misaligned Atlas, the underlying vertebrae assume an incorrect position. Where the angle of rotation of the Atlas is marked, in some people a twisting of the entire chest or spinal column may be observed. This situation can worsen owing to a number of other physical or psychological/emotional factors, which can be investigated in a separate consultation. After correction of the Atlas, in cases of extremely pronounced scoliosis, it is advisable to undergo other specific treatments and perform corrective physical exercise, as over time the muscles have developed asymmetrically and need to be strengthened anew in a targeted manner. Preventing Scoliosis with the Atlas reposition method Once scoliosis has established itself, it takes a long time and a great deal of work before it can be corrected. For this reason, it is advisable to carry out correction of the Atlas as early as possible, even from childhood, so that scoliosis does not have a chance to develop. Deviation of the spinal column from its axis of symmetry and ideal shape provides a breeding ground for a whole series of secondary problems such as lumbar pain, back strain, cervicalgia, trapped spinal nerves causing pins and needles or limbs that "go to sleep," torticollis, hernias of the intervertebral discs, pain in the hip joints, pain in the knees or feet and numerous other conditions apparently unrelated to the Atlas.
Discus hernia
The connection between a slipped / herniated disc and the C1 Atlas vertebra A ruptured or herniated disk (slipped disk) occurs when parts of a disk's gelatinous nucleus protrude from the disk. The disks act as a cushion between one vertebra and another. The pulpy part that has become unseated may apply pressure to the surrounding nerve endings, thus creating a mechanical conflict that may cause pain or a sensation of numbness in the limbs. The intervertebral disks act as shock absorbers for the loads impacting the vertebrae. These loads can be rather heavy provided that the forces that are applied are distributed across the entire disk surface and provided that the disks haven't experienced any degenerative change. The estimated load on the vertebrae can be up to 800 kg when you stretch out your arms and carry a 10 kg weight. As a result of systematically photographing and documenting patients in front of a special measuring wall during their treatment, we can state with certainty that the formation of a cervical or lumbar disk hernia always implies the presence of pelvic obliquity or a lateral deviation of the spinal column (scoliosis) in relation to the correct axis. We can thus infer that a herniated disk can develop ONLY in a spine that deviates from the ideal form. Doctors speak of a "worn" disk. Have you ever asked how a disk can wear out and why something like that would even happen? Could it be that doctors confuse disks with the shock absorbers on a car, which wear out over time? If that were the case, shouldn't we protect our disks by avoiding as much movement as possible? How can it be then that someone will remain completely healthy even if they move around a lot and regularly use their disks? The truth is that the disks don't wear out. Rather they degenerate because they "dry out" and lose their density to a point where they rupture. Why does this happen? Because over the years, the disks receive loads only from one direction and, in addition, high muscle tension continuously compresses them. Think of a mayonnaise sandwich: If you apply too much pressure, the mayonnaise will ooze out! How do disk ruptures (disk hernias) occur? When the pelvis is in an oblique position or the patient suffers from scoliosis, the weight cannot be distributed across the entire surface and only rests on certain parts of the disks. The condition continues to worsen whenever there is a pronounced backward curvature in the area of the lumbar vertebrae. In such cases, the surface area of the disk under load becomes drastically reduced; with consequences that are easy to imagine: over time the point on the disk where the weight is concentrated will deteriorate, sowing the seeds for a hernia. The muscles that develop as a result of the displaced Atlas and the resulting obliquely positioned pelvis end up becoming stubbornly tense and pull asymmetrically to cling to one or more lumbar vertebrae as if stuck in a screw clamp. As the constant pressure increases, the freedom of movement of any disks stuck in the middle becomes seriously restricted. Intervertebral disks stay healthy by exchanging nutrition and waste products with the surrounding tissues; thanks to internal pressure changes within the disk itself – conditions that are created through compression when loads are applied and through decompression when the strains are provided with relief. Because their internal pressure is much higher than normal blood pressure, disks aren't supplied with blood like other tissue. The load borne by the disks also changes as the body's position changes. Yet between standing up and lying down, the load is only reduced by 20%. The previously described conditions can lead to a lower load reduction rate, thus compromising the vital disk regeneration process that takes place during the night. As a result the disks "dry out" over the years, lose their elasticity, and can even fracture under increased loads. What should you do if your disk ruptures (herniated disk)? It is possible to surgically remove the part of the broken disk, or more frequently the pulp of the disk nucleus that is putting pressure on the nerve roots exiting the spinal canal and causing pain and numbness in the limbs. Nowadays alternative solutions are preferred, as operations of this kind are not risk-free and can lead to complications and chronic pain, as observed in several people. Repositioning the Atlas makes it possible to achieve improved posture and a significant reduction in pelvic obliquity. The improved distribution of loads on the spine and, ultimately, on the intervertebral disks that results from the reduction in muscle tension, aids the spontaneous process of healing the hernia and reduces the risk of hernias occurring again in the future. The method is particularly suitable for the PREVENTION of herniated discs, or for hernias that are still in the initial phase. The treatment is aimed at resolving the cause rather than the symptom itself, so for hernias at a very advanced stage it is often necessary to intervene with more specifically targeted treatments.
Back Pain
Finally an explanation for chronic muscle-based back pain Muscular contractions and pains, like back pain, can have several causes, such as poor posture, lack of exercise, stress, and even negative emotional states. Much can be done in this regard: from exercising to strengthen the muscles to various kinds of massage, muscle relaxants and inflammation inhibitors which however aren't long-term solutions because of their many side effects. As long as the skeletal structure doesn't reach an ideal posture, muscle pain and tension will always return. While an Atlas adjustment will not counteract daily stress, it can bring long-lasting improvement to physical posture and basic muscle tone, reducing chronic muscle contractions. In plain English: stress can have negative effects on the body, of course even after an Atlas adjustment. Yet add poor posture and the effect will be multiplied, expanding quickly beyond the pain threshold. Poor posture and back pain / lower back pain The cause of poor posture explained in detail can be summarized as follows: The neck and shoulder muscles have the arduous task of stabilizing and balancing the head. If the head is permanently misaligned in relation to the axis of the body due to an incorrectly positioned Atlas, then the neck muscles must provide much greater support and will undergo excessive strain. Often this muscular imbalance will lead to painful tension in the neck, shoulders, and back on one side of the body. In general, these tension-related pains only appear on one side of the body. In extreme cases tension is experienced on both sides. While regular massage can temporarily relieve muscle pain, the origin of the imbalance will remain, causing the pain to resurface after a while. The treatment combines two advantages  It immediately cures muscle tension with the aid of two massage devices developed specifically for this purpose. The result is that the back and neck muscles are relaxed to a point that you have rarely experienced before.  It realigns the Atlas, permanently improving body posture and preventing posture-related muscle tension and neck and back pain in the future. THE END RESULT: the preparatory massage will immediately alleviate tension, while the Atlas adjustment will have long-term effects.
What should you do if you experience lumbago / sciatica? Some people suffer from an occasional or cyclical unrelenting lock-up of the lumbar region. When getting up in the morning, or when making a sudden wrong movement, the person is stricken with immobility accompanied by shooting pains as soon as s/he attempts to move. The lumbar column seems frozen. Indeed, any movement seems to make the situation worse. The medical term for the proverbial "back pain" is lumbago. Any movement seems to worsen the situation and the pain may become so strong that those affected can only crawl on all fours and need someone to help them. We have observed that regular backache sufferers generally have an acutely tilted pelvis associated with severe muscular contractions in the lumbar region. The pelvis is usually tilted off its horizontal axis because of varying tension caused by the symmetrical muscle pairs that contribute to its alignment. Backache is generally sparked by sharp, sudden movements made "from cold" with the pelvis in this condition; this triggers an involuntary defense mechanism of stiffening of the entire lumbar musculature, which prevents any possible strains of the muscles and ligaments that had been suddenly over-stressed. This cramp is induced by the body to prevent hyperextension of muscles and ligaments and to protect the nerves exiting the spinal canal. Significant and long-lasting improvements in general posture, hollow back (hyperlordosis), and pelvic obliquity are possible after treatments. As a result the main causes of lumbago are removed. Experience shows that many patients who have received Atlas treatment no longer suffer from the condition. The treatment can also be performed during an acute lumbago phase and, indeed, is doubly useful, since the deep massage needed in preparation for the treatment can also immediately alleviate the pain.
Tilting of the pelvis
Tilting of the pelvis – asymmetry / obliquity of the pelvis Pelvic obliquity (the tilting of the pelvis/pelvic misalignment) or pelvic rotation can also have negative effects on the misalignment of the Atlas. The pelvis is also affected and leans to one side as a result when the spine is subjected to asymmetrical forces because the muscles on one side of the body end up being more tense. Pelvic obliquity creates the impression that one leg is longer than the other even though they are of the same length. Pelvic obliquity has negative effects on hip joints, knees and feet, and even on the disks. A simple method to establish the presence of an oblique pelvis is to look at yourself carefully in a mirror: is one hip bone higher than the other? This is another way to notice pelvic obliquity: in order to distribute the weight to the other side, do you tend to slightly bend one knee while you are standing? If the answer is yes, then it is likely that you're suffering from pelvic obliquity. An oblique (asymmetrical) pelvis can be permanently improved or completely corrected by an Atlas adjustment. The correction often takes place immediately after the treatment or as the skeletal structure gradually finds its balance. If the pelvis does not compensate fully, then the cause may lie in malocclusion of the jaw. Manual treatments for pelvic obliquity Manual therapists such as physiotherapists and osteopaths attempt to realign the pelvis through manipulative techniques, stretching, or massage. As most patients affected by an oblique pelvis can confirm, the effects of this manipulation are usually temporary. After treatment, the pelvis will rapidly adjust back to its former position, thus forcing patients into regular treatment so that they can at least enjoy some improvement. Over the long term, the pains become chronic and a fertile breeding ground is created for pain in the groin region, for herniated disks, or for lumbago. This occurs because the cause of an oblique pelvis, which lies in a misalignment of the Atlas (worsened by malocclusion of the jaw), is not taken into consideration nor adequately corrected during manual adjustments of the pelvis. A conventional dentist who treats teeth usually pays no heed to the misalignment of the pelvis, while the manual therapist or orthopedist remains focused on the pelvis and does not pay attention to dental or mandibular misalignments. As long as the musculoskeletal system is not viewed and treated in its totality, long-lasting solutions for patients will not be found. Experience has shown that when the Atlas – and if necessary the jaw – is realigned, the pelvis realigns as a result, this time permanently. Once the primary cause is removed, manual techniques can be applied to the pelvis to provide support and to allow the body to return more quickly to a balanced position. Pelvic obliquity from a medical and orthopedic perspective Patients suffering from pelvic obliquity who turn to a doctor or orthopedist usually receive the diagnosis that one leg is shorter than the other. Nothing could be further from the truth. As shown in a study by Burkhard Hock, legs that are unequal in length from birth occur in only 4% of the population. 96% of cases of pelvic asymmetry arise through a forward or backward rotation of a hip bone. Scoliosis in the lumbar vertebrae region causes the pelvis to twist. An orthopedist or doctor dealing with pelvic obliquity usually requests X-rays of the pelvis in order to determine the asymmetry "accurately." This approach introduces a serious error of perspective: while there are three dimensions (height x width x depth), the X-ray image of the pelvis reduces it to two dimensions (height x width). Anyone familiar with photography or physics will immediately understand the error! What the doctor interprets from the X-ray as one leg being shorter is in fact an error of perspective caused by one hip bone being spatially further forward or back compared to the other hip bone (depth view). In a two-dimensional (2D) image, as in a simple X-ray image, "one hip bone will appear HIGHER than the other" rather than "further FORWARD than the other" as would be the case in a three-dimensional perspective. How do orthopedists compensate for this error in perspective and comprehension? By prescribing an orthopedic insole! What is the result of an orthopedic insole when in reality there is nothing wrong with the length of the legs? Simple! Back pains will increase because an additional imbalance is introduced into the musculoskeletal system! Doctors are trained to view the mechanism of movement from the ground up (bottom-up). Thus, as a matter of first impression, it would be logical to diagnose the cause of pelvic obliquity as"differences in leg length." That's when they say: "One of your legs is shorter than the other!" Orthopedic insoles only make sense in those 4% of cases where there really is a difference in leg length; in the remaining 96% of cases they may even be the source of injuries, as many patients can confirm.
Lack of energy & chronic exhaustion
Lack of energy and chronic exhaustion In order to carry out its complex work, the brain requires a great deal of energy and a great deal of oxygen: indeed, it has been calculated that the brain absorbs as much as 20-25% of all the oxygen available to the body. What type of result can we expect if the supply routes of oxygen are constantly compressed? The "bottleneck" caused by a poorly positioned Atlas compresses the nerves that exit the cranium and pass through and in the immediate vicinity of the Atlas. Compression of a nerve causes dispersion of the nerve impulses, which are for all intents and purposes electrical impulses. This compression may gradually increase until a short-circuit occurs. Over time, constant pressure on a nerve leads to irritation of that nerve. If an impulse does not have sufficient force, the muscles do not contract as expected and the brain is forced to send an impulse of greater intensity. Millions of impulses are transmitted in the course of a day. In case of the condition described above, the energy input is truly out of proportion with the normal requirements for a given activity. When standing or sitting, a further amount of energy is used to keep the muscles that compensate for the misalignment of the head caused by the incorrectly positioned Atlas permanently contracted. Under these circumstances, the body requires more energy even for the simplest activities; there is a substantial reduction in stamina, unmotivated chronic fatigue and drowsiness, until a feeling of exhaustion and >burn-out sets in. After correction of the Atlas, many people treated with the method report experiencing increased physical and mental energy. Many people report that their breathing improves, that they need less sleep to feel in good shape, and that they recover faster. The head turns much more freely and with less effort, with a sensation of lightness and an increased angle of rotation in both directions.
Whiplash injury and misaligned Atlas
Misaligned Atlas as a cause for ongoing whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) Whiplash trauma may provoke a misalignment of the Atlas or worsen an existing misalignment. The term "whiplash" is used to describe all traumas that involve a violent forward/backward movement of the cervical spine. Whiplash can be caused by car accidents, violent blows received while playing sports, or falls, sometimes of a trivial nature. Very often after a whiplash injury people are no longer the same: ordinary daily activities may become a burden. In extreme cases they can no longer carry out their work adequately; they shut themselves away at home and their social life ends up being severely affected. Until now it was known that whiplash trauma could cause hyperextension of the ligaments and muscles of the cervical spine. In severe cases whiplash trauma may even cause ruptures of vertebrae or ligaments. What was completely unknown was why chronic pain can develop as a result of whiplash trauma. • Have you suffered a whiplash injury and yet no doctor has been able to tell you what is causing your recurring, persistent symptoms? • Have you tried all available treatments with no success? • Did your doctor have you undergo X-rays and/or MRI scans as well as all the necessary examinations only to reassure you that structurally everything is in order? • Despite your doctor's reassurances, are your symptoms getting worse rather than better, so you find yourself drugged to the eyeballs with painkillers or even psychotropic drugs (anti-depressants)? Your doctor probably seeks to persuade you that your symptoms are psychological of psychosomatic in origin or even treats you as a malingerer. But you know well that this is not the case and that your pain is real, because you certainly had no such problems before the whiplash injury. The problem lies in the fact that the doctor is trained to search for larger-scale structural damage, such as bone fractures or damaged ligaments. When no injuries of this nature are found, to his eyes everything appears to be in order and all you need to do is "look after yourself and rest for a while," perhaps with the aid of a head/neck restraining device. A whiplash injury may not necessarily lead to such extreme injuries that can be diagnosed by a doctor. However, even small imbalances and misalignments in the spine can cause chronic symptoms. The cervical spine as a precision mechanism The cervical spine can be compared to precision engineering in terms of its complexity. This can be illustrated as follows: if you drop a mechanical watch on the floor, when you pick it up, the watch appears to be intact, but unfortunately you soon notice that it is no longer working correctly and that it always runs 5 minutes late. Why? One of the rockers on which the gears rotate probably got bent in the impact, becoming eccentric in the process, and now some gears are subject to more friction than they should be. This can happen with the spinal column too – not because whiplash bends the vertebrae, but even in the absence of obvious structural damage, the vertebrae can still assume an incorrect alignment in relation to the others or in relation to the skull, so as to disturb the equilibrium of the whole spine. Vertebrae misalignments are not considered by conventional medicine because they cannot be seen by X-rays or MRI scans; the doctor is looking for structural damage and not for misalignments, unless they are really macroscopic. So the doctor comes to the conclusion that "the reason for the complaints persisting after a whiplash injury is unknown" and, worse still, "it isn't possible to heal the patient." To return to the example above, what would you think of a clockmaker if he told you that your watch was working just fine and that you were the one reading your watch incorrectly? This is more or less the same as telling you that "your complaints are psychosomatic in origin." The method for Atlas reposition does NOT deal with large-scale structural injuries (bone fractures or damaged ligaments), which must in any case be diagnosed and treated by a spine doctor, nor is it applied using manipulation. We do NOT perform manipulations and we do NOT limit ourselves to a mere massage either. What exactly happens during a whiplash injury? Many people who have suffered a whiplash injury and who, despite resorting to conventional treatments, are still not completely healed often have the feeling that, despite all the medical examinations there is something wrong with their neck, that their neck is simply not the same as before! In most cases this is true. The misalignment of the Atlas which has existed since birth may be even more rotated or shifted sideways by whiplash trauma. In this position the Atlas compresses the spinal cord, vertebral arteries, carotid artery, various vessels and lymphatic channels. These consequences are all virtually impossible to diagnose through routine examination techniques. Misalignment of the Atlas does not correct itself, but requires an external intervention. Without these correcting measures the typical chronic complaints caused by whiplash trauma emerge. Whiplash-associated disorders Some of the possible symptoms or complaints after a whiplash injury are: 1. severe muscular pain in the neck and shoulders 2. muscle-tensive headache, overwhelming headache 3. migraine 4. pins and needles in the face or arms 5. dazed sensation, feeling of emptiness 6. disturbed vision and hearing 7. problems of concentration and memory 8. sleep disorders, fatigue 9. insecurity and anxiety 10. irritability, increased sensitivity to noise 11. weakness, significant reduction in stamina 12. vertigo, dizziness, unbalance 13. burnout syndrome 14. depression, grief, despair Cramped neck musculature after whiplash trauma Many whiplash patients have had the unfortunate experience that the pain caused by the injuries arising from the sharp forward and backward movement of the head does not diminish with the passing of time, but on the contrary, gets worse, developing like a nightmare into chronic symptoms. The reason for this – irrespective of the incorrect alignment of the cervical vertebrae – is to be found in the muscle cramps in the deep neck musculature triggered by the whiplash injury. The cervical and paravertebral muscles, after being hyper-stretched, remain permanently contracted and will not release even with the help of endless massages or physiotherapy sessions. Head movements are often limited and painful. What can be done in such a case? Help is available from the AtlantoVib device, which is intended specifically for Atlas-realignment, and which also enables the deep musculature to be reached with an intense, effective massage. With one or two sessions focused mainly on the neck muscles, they can relax again, the spasm disappears, and the head is able to move freely again, bringing major relief. This type of massage, combined with the correction of Atlas misalignment, often completely clears up the disorder resulting from a whiplash injury. Precautions enabling Atlas adjustment after whiplash trauma The method places the ligaments of the Atlas-cranium joint and the connected structures under stress. After a whiplash some precautions need to be followed. To prevent complications of any kind, before treatment it is important to exclude structural damage caused by trauma to the cervical area, through appropriate medical examinations, then as a precautionary measure wait at least two months before receiving the treatment so that undiagnosed or non-diagnosable damage to joint capsules, ligaments, etc., can heal. After correcting the position of the Atlas following a whiplash injury, it is advisable to continue with other treatments performed by an osteopath in order

Read on to find out why misalignment of the first cervical vertebra may be responsible for a whole series of apparently unrelated problems, the treatment of which focuses merely on suppressing the pain without removing the cause. A new discovery could now bring relief in many cases.

The Atlas is the hidden cause of numerous complaints

The first cervical vertebra, known as the Atlas or C1, plays the most delicate and at the same time primary role for the entire spine.

A malfunction in this area can produce a "domino effect" on the entire musculoskeletal system, as well as the circulation and nervous systems, creating imbalances and dysfunctions in various parts of the body.

With time these dysfunctions may turn into serious health problems of apparently unknown origin. The body is not able to function as it should, seriously affecting quality of life, yet no organic cause can be identified or diagnosed.

Are your complaints really just psychosomatic?

How many patients are told by their doctors that their problems are unknown and that they "obviously" have a psychosomatic origin? It is quite likely that your doctor doesn't know – and therefore doesn't tell you – that a misaligned Atlas might be the cause of your problems.

Chronic complaints after whiplash trauma and recurring migraine attacks or headaches find a simple, logical explanation in the Atlas misalignment. Correction of this problem offers a real, lasting solution without being forced to take medicine continuously with the ensuing side effects.

In addition, correction of the Atlas vertebra is the ideal method to improve posture, thus preventing postural defects such as functional short leg, pelvic obliquity, hyperlordosis/hollow back, kyphosis, idiopathic / functional scoliosis and hypolordosis.

Facts you should know about misalignment of the Atlas vertebra

  • For many people the trauma of birth leads to a misalignment of the Atlas (first cervical vertebra) and sometimes also of the Axis (second vertebra).

  • Traumas such as whiplash or falls may also cause or further accentuate misalignment of the Atlas vertebra.

  • It has been found that misalignment of the Atlas is responsible for a number of disorders and conditions at both the physical and mental level.

  • Conventional medicine does not consider misalignment of the Atlas vertebra a possible cause of disorders in the patient. As a result this problem generally goes undiagnosed.

  • Failure to diagnose the problem is due to the fact that misalignment of the Atlas does not show up in regular X-rays or magnetic-resonance imaging.

  • A multi-slice helical CT scan allows misalignment to be detected clearly and measured, but only if the radiologist sets up the CT machine for this purpose.

  • Leaving aside severe dislocations of the vertebrae requiring surgery, conventional medicine offers no treatment to correct the misalignment of the first cervical vertebra.

  • A single session is all that is needed to permanently return the Atlas to the correct position.

  • Many consider that acting on the neck area is dangerous. You should know that any potential danger is limited to chiropractic manipulations. Our method uses a completely new, riskfree principle, which has nothing to do with chiropractic, osteopathy or any other familiar methods.

The most common complaints which have benefited from realignment of the Atlas vertebra

The negative effects of misalignment of the Atlas may manifest themselves throughout the entire body.

Data collected and records of patients treated have enabled us to draw up a list of the most common complaints and symptoms which may be alleviated by repositioning the Atlas. It is important to understand that not all disorders listed disappear in anyone who undergoes Atlas treatment, as they may have other causes or contributing factors.

It would be wrong to interpret correction of the Atlas as a miracle cure that can solve all problems. On the contrary, it is essential to understand that the purpose of method absolutely does not consist in diagnosing or "curing" a variety of disorders, but simply in seeing whether it is necessary to treat the Atlas. What is miraculous is the body's ability to self-heal, once put in a position to do so!

Correcting the position of the Atlas, if misaligned, is necessary, irrespective of any problems temporarily experienced, as such treatment is an "investment" in good future health. Realignment is advisable starting with children and allows the body to function at its full potential.

Migraine from a medical point of view

Generally, patients suffering from headaches or migraines typically go to the doctor thinking that they will be CURED. They soon discover that their doctor's concept of cure is different from their own.

During their university studies, doctors learn that treating migraine, for example, involves relieving symptoms or pain, and not seeking the cause of the symptom itself in order to cure it, thus preventing the same problem from recurring in the future.

Doctors examine patients and collect data with the sole purpose of prescribing the "best" medicines manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and promoted in their surgeries in order to achieve sales.

The modern doctor has turned into a veritable "drug pusher"! The reason is a lack of interest on the part of the pharmaceutical industry in finding a permanent solution for migraine, as a lifetime patient is a lot more profitable than a healed one. Moreover, doctors must adhere to guidelines while treating their patients and therefore are committed to prescribing pills rather than alternative treatments.

If you don't believe it, ask yourself the following question: when was the last time the pharmaceutical industry announced that it had found the definitive cure for any given disease? Those who become aware of this fact stop running to their doctor to try to solve their chronic illnesses such as migraine or headache, but instead keep on searching for alternative solutions.

Before patients come to this conclusion, unfortunately they need to fall flat on their face. Only after suffering a pill-induced gastric ulcer and endless migraine and headache attacks do they start searching for alternative solutions.

In an emergency a pill can be useful. However, it does not represent a permanent solution for constantly recurring migraines or headaches!

Atlas misalignment as a possible reason for migraine

Misalignment of the Atlas does not only compress the nerves but also the adjacent arteries and veins. This results in a circulation disturbance of the brain, which in combination with other factors may lead to migraine and headaches as well as various other health problems.

The theory that migraine is a neurological disease melts away like the snow in the sun after a correction of the Atlas!
