The art and science of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is the study of the spine with specific concentration on the first bone in the neck, the Atlas vertebrae. A conventional chiropractic adjustment is done with the Doctor’s hands, but Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic utilizes a precise, repeatable, x-ray- analyzed chiropractic program to adjust the Atlas vertebrae by a percussive force Instrument. In doing so, the Doctors remove nerve interference.
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s engineering department helped Dr. Sweat develop, define and refine the x-ray vector program of adjusting. Seven AO Instruments have been updated for precision and excellence over the years. The R.W. Sweat Foundation research studies have helped millions of patients and their families, students and doctors. And since its development there have been numerous books and articles on the subject.
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is taught at five Chiropractic Colleges, and is practiced in six countries and at more than 600 chiropractic practices worldwide. Medical doctors, neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, dentists and other chiropractors refer their patients to Atlas Orthogonalists for Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic.
