Dr. Joaquim Valdivia Tor
Upper Cervical Chiropractor - Atlas Orthogonal

Girona

Chiropractic treatment

Our primary treatment is based on the adjustment of the cervical spine, more specifically, the adjustment of the first vertebra, the atlas in relation with the head and the other cervical vertebrae.

  • Correction of the spine

This adjustment intimately affect the balance of the spine as well as the entire body.

Atlas Orthogonal

The spinal adjustment corrects the misaligned vertebrae through an effective, safe, painless and scientific system.

This system, known as Atlas Orthogonal, is based upon the palpation of the first 2 cervical nerves, the leg lenght check and the analysis of 3 x-rays (to know the exact misalignment produced in the upper cervical spine).

  • Atlas Orthogonal analysis (chiropractic treatment)

Once those factors are known we apply a very light and painless force that comes from the Atlas Orthogonal adjusting instrument to align the spine.

After the adjustment is completed we re-evaluate the changes produced in the palpation, the leg length and 2 more x-rays.

Our secondary treatment is based on standard chiropractic techniques.
