Atlas Orthogonal is a specialized Chiropractic technique based on the analysis and correction of the first vertebra (atlas) in relation to the head and the rest of the cervical spine.
The study of specific X-rays allows the doctor to mathematically calculate for each patient the misalignment of the joints of the upper neck which is related to the symptoms and discomfort suffered.
The correction (or adjustment) of the atlas is done after the careful study of the X-rays and is performed with a non-invasive, safe, gentle and painless mechanical device.
Dr. Joaquín Valdivia is currently using a specially designed table with the Atlas Orthogonal device mounted on it. Dr. Valdivia’s research and development of the equipment is described in the article:
