Atlas Orthogonal Technique (low force):
At Ammons Chiropractic Clinic in Sanford, we are proud to specialize in the Atlas Orthogonal Technique which utilizes an instrument to move the first bone in the neck, called the atlas, through a percussive wave, which is a vibration to reposition the atlas vertebra. The atlas bone can affect the alignment of the entire spine. The human body is balanced when the head is positioned in the center of the feet. When the atlas is misaligned it causes the head to tilt and the spine to shift to support the weight of the head. This small shift in the atlas then creates biomechanical and postural stresses and strains to the body. When the atlas bone is properly aligned, that is in the orthogonal—or neutral—position, the rest of the spinal vertebra come into better alignment allowing the body to heal itself from pain and dysfunction. The Atlas Orthogonal Technique enables the delicate and complex connections of the nervous system to communicate between the systems of the body without interference from misalignments.
Activator Methods Technique (low force):
We specialize in the Activator Methods Technique (AMCT). The Activator Method chiropractic technique uses a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called the Activator adjusting instrument. This instrument allows chiropractors to provide a quick, low-force impulse at specific points of misalignment. The Activator Method chiropractic technique is a type of manipulation treatment used by chiropractors to treat various types of back and neck pain, as well as extremity complaints. The Activator Method is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.
