After evaluation of a misaligned atlas, it is necessary for very precise x-rays to be taken. These x-rays produce a three dimensional picture of the Atlas and shows the doctor exactly how it is displaced.
Following careful analysis and study, the specific angles used to correct the atlas toward orthogonal/neutral are determined. The x-rays taken are crucial in making the most precise atlas correction which is as unique to the patient as their own fingerprint.
Additional X-Ray Analysis
Post x-rays will also be taken to ensure that the best possible correction was rendered. However, proper healing time is to be expected for any condition. With this in mind, the doctor will develop a treatment protocol designed to restore proper function to the spine and nervous system, including exercise, nutritional guidelines, re-evaluation, and follow up care.
