Atlas Spinal Center in Dubai Healthcare City
At the Atlas Spinal Clinic our fundamental concern is getting to the root cause of health problems, rather than treating symptoms. Our Atlas Orthogonal (AO) work centers on what we call the pillar of life – the spinal column – a vital part of the body that directly affects its whole wellbeing.
No pain. Plenty of gain.
First and foremost we believe in doing no harm. AO is an extremely gentle procedure because it mainly works on the atlas – a small and delicate bone. We avoid painful manipulation and instead use light pulses to correct spinal misalignment. For many patients we have actually eliminated the need for medication or surgery.
A culture of precision
It’s important to us that our treatments involve no guesswork at all. That’s why we conduct detailed physical and X-ray examinations, using specialist software to calculate the precise pressure and angle of adjustment for your atlas. Because our methods are so accurate, positive results are dramatic and long lasting.
Greater value. Superior service.
We’re dedicated to helping our patients experience faster relief and better overall health. We strive to achieve this in as few sessions as possible, which means you spend less money. With these benefits, we also try to make your visits to Atlas Spinal Clinic more convenient and less painless all round:
– Friendly helpful staff
– Customised care plans
– Convenient financing plans
Caring for your column of life
Your spine is vital to your health and well-being – its misalignment can lead to a number of related health problems ranging from constant headaches to chronic spinal decay.
The vital atlas bone
In the early 1900s Dr B J Palmer discovered that the atlas bone, at the top of your spine, is responsible for both the position of your head and the resulting alignment of your spine. Atlas Orthogonal is the treatment of the spine with specific attention to this vital atlas vertebrae.
It was revolutionised in 1982 by eminent spine specialist Dr Roy Sweat. Unlike conventional adjustment – which requires painful manipulation and pressure applied by doctors’ hands – AO adjusts the atlas bone with a percussive sound wave instrument. It is safe and painless.
Dr Sweat worked with the Georgia Institute of Technology to design an advanced AO percussion instrument and x-ray vector program. The instrument is now in its seventh generation and treatment is more precise and effective than ever.
An innovation in healthcare
Every year around the world, millions of people benefit from the gentle, natural healing of AO. It is now taught at five US Chiropractic Colleges, and practised in six countries and more than 600 practices worldwide. Medical doctors, neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, dentists and other chiropractors refer their patients to Atlas Orthognists.
The goal of AO
When the atlas bone in your neck is misaligned, it causes an imbalance throughout your body. Atlas Orthogonal (AO) works by gently realigning this vertebra. Because the atlas is so small and delicate, any work on it needs to be extremely precise and careful.
A carefully measured approach
AO uses accurate technology such as X-ray to determine the exact relationship between your skull atlas and cervical spine. This degree of misalignment is programmed into the AO percussion instrument to provide a healing experience, meticulously tailored to your specific measurements. During treatment, the device delivers a wave similar to an ultra-sound pulse, gently moving your atlas back to its original position. With the stress of misalignment removed, your pain and discomfort quickly disappear.
The AO adjustment is usually quick and simple, delivering much needed relief without painful manipulation. Your AO will create a professional treatment course so you know exactly how long it will take.
