An Atlas Orthogonist is a specialist who has undergone extensive training in correcting atlas misalignments. The C1 Vertebra also refered to as the Atlas is the top-most upper cervical vertebra that supports the base of your skull.
(as highlited in the picture on the right).
The Atlas vertebra is the most important link to the rest of your spine. When it is misaligned and locked into an abnormal position, the spine below develops postural distortions that can lead to tension, irritation, disruption to blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid, and can create degenerative changes to the rest of your body.
Atlas supports the weight of the head most efficiently in the Orthogonal position. Dr. Scarborough, a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist, is able to accurately reposition the atlas vertebra using a non-invasive, gentle procedure without pain or pressure. He was trained directly by the pioneer and developer Roy W. Sweat D.C. of the Sweat Institute, Atlanta, Georgia.
