Fort Worth Chiropractor Uses Atlas Orthogonal for Sciatica Treatment

5

Is chronic sciatica pain stopping you from living your life? Many people wait for pain to occur before taking steps to treat it. The pattern goes something like this. First, you experience that all-too-familiar shooting pain running down your lower back, buttocks and leg. Next, you call your doctor or chiropractor in search of pain relief. Your doctor may prescribe medication to numb the pain sensation, and your chiropractor will likely recommend an in-office adjustment to relieve nerve compression. Unfortunately, a pain response approach to sciatica can be counterproductive. While these treatments do relieve pain symptoms, waiting for pain to occur does not necessarily fix the root cause of the problem and does not allow you to break free from the cycle of sciatica pain.

Discover Sciatica Pain Treatment that Addresses the Root Problem

“Atlas Orthogonal” refers to the Atlas vertebra, which is the top vertebra in the spine. It’s critical to keep this bone in the orthogonal or neutral position. Once this vertebra becomes misaligned, the body has no choice but to try to compensate by aligning the head incorrectly, which can cause a high shoulder, a high hip, and a shortened leg. Thus creating a “chain reaction” of misalignment throughout the body, including the lower back.

When the top “link” is back in place, the rest of the chain aligns correctly. Atlas Orthogonal treatment will bring alignment to your spine and alleviate sciatic nerve irritation.
