What to Expect


Atlas Chiropractic in Taylor Texas

Scan Atlas chiropracticStep One

A detailed consultation is conducted to understand the history of each individual. Next, a complete examination is performed including a computerized digital thermography scan. Thermography measures the heat (thermo) coming from the body. We use Thermography to locate inflammation in the body. By reading heat reading registering in certain parts of the body we can locate abnormalities in the spine.

Historically, temperature readings have been the most common diagnostic tool in health practice. Although Thermography is only about 30 years old, it is used in applications ranging from breast cancer screening to carotid artery stenosis detection to evaluating neuromusculoskeletal problems. In Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care the use of low resolution Thermography gives the upper cervical chiropractor an objective way to monitor our patients and how the chiropractic adjustment affected the patient’s nerve system. Low resolution Thermography is an economical and non-invasive instrument that allows us to locate vertebral subluxations and know when they have been corrected.

If it has been determined that a vertebral subluxation is present, very specific three dimensional X-ray films are taken. The analysis of these films calculates a precise, customized adjustment that will impact the whole spine.

 

Step Three

The upper cervical chiropractic adjustment itself is performed to the upper neck and typically feels completely under-whelming and painless. There is NO cracking or twisting of the neck or spine in the upper cervical adjustment.

The post adjustment scan and analysis is used to determine if the atlas was properly returned to its neutral position directly underneath the center of the skull. Also, measurement of the neck is calculated to determine if the head and atlas are balanced appropriately.

Since each individual has a unique history and postural imbalance, follow-up care will be discussed on the visit following the initial adjustment. This specific, gentle Upper Cervical Chiropractic approach has helped numerous people with various conditions. At Atlas Chiropractic in Taylor, Texas we do not treat a specific disease or condition. But by restoring proper body balance, we are able to optimize the body’s ability to heal itself.
