Study Finds Special ‘Atlas Adjustment’ Lowers Blood Pressure

http://www.chiroeco.com/chiropractic/news/1052/52/Study:-Atlas-adjustment-decreases-blood-pressure/

With millions of people getting amazing results and research project after research project backing the findings, Chiropractic finally gets it’s props on the #1 medical web site in the world.

Tens of millions will give this response after reading this research article, “I didn’t believe it. Chiropractic is good for the heart?” The proof, however, is in the stethoscope!!!!

Whether or not you have symptoms or a positive tests, you need to find out if your atlas is in it’s normal position before it’s too late, deadly, and in need of the medical model.

The atlas is the top bone in the spine upon which your skull rests. When you do your Funky Chicken exercises your skull glides on this bone. When you shake your head “NO” your atlas rotates on the bone below, the axis-C2.

When the atlas gets stuck it causes interference to the nervous system, specifically to your BRAIN STEM! All you have to do is do a google search on the brain stem and see how important that area is for FULL BODY FUNCTION! That is why it is vital to get adjusted and keep your joints gliding….not degenerating…thereby allowing your nervous system to function at it’s natural level.

For those under Chiropractic care ….. this is truly exciting when you realize that getting adjusted isn’t just good for your joints….it’s good for your heart..your lungs…your liver…your life! You get the point!…

What Techniques Does Dr. Brook Use?

Chiropractic Techniques Used by Dr. Brook

In order to customize the right chiropractic technique for each person I studied with several chiropractic masters. The list below is a brief explanation of the techniques I use to adjust and correct one’s subluxations.

If you have any questions about any of the techniques I use, feel free to contact me any time.

PALMER METHOD

This will involve any of a number of specific adjusting techniques, such as full spine, gonstead, & HIO, with the addition of a philosophy which emphasizes  the role of the Innate Intelligence of the body in the healing process.  It will not utilize any therapy other than hand adjustment.

THOMPSON

A specific technique for adjustment of the full spine on a special table which has a slight drop in the cushions to improve the effectiveness of the adjustment without as much force into the patient.

GONSTEAD

A specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments.

H.I.O. — Hole In One AKA Toggle Recoil

A specific adjustment of the upper cervical spine… the upper part of the neck, closest to the brain.This technique utilizes a side posture table with a cervical head piece which makes a slight drop when the adjustment is given.

MLS

Developed by my mentor Dr. Arno Burnier. It is an advanced technique that involves visualization, motion palpation, and advanced delicate adjusting.

MOTION ANALYSIS (PALPATION)

An examination procedure used to test the mobility of spinal joints by feeling for movement between the vertebra.

ACTIVATOR

It is a small had held impact tool in which a quick impulse is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern.

How it Works – Your First Visit

Your First Visit to The Life Center Chiropractic

The purpose of the first visit is to gather information about your past and current health status.  After a brief tour of our office, you will sit with Dr. Jeremy Brook in consultation, to determine how we can best assist you.

Should chiropractic care be an option for you, you can choose to have a comprehensive chiropractic analysis performed.  This will include a full spectrum evaluation consisting of motion spinal palpation, computerized sEMG examination, infra-red thermography, and range of motion studies . Assessment of your spine follows to reveal exactly how your body’s performance is being compromised by vertebral subluxation- a misaligned spinal bone that interferes with the transmission of vital nerve signals.

Dr. Brooks Reviews Findings

That afternoon or evening, Dr. Brook will review your findings, then analyze them in detail to determine two things:  1) any unusual findings, which when present, may alter our Recommended Program of Care or facilitate possible follow up by another health care professional and 2) highlight any precautions necessary for you to receive chiropractic care.

Your Chiropractic Game Plan

Once we have done so, we will integrate these findings with the results of your chiropractic analysis and design a personalized game plan.

This visit has two primary purposes: 

1.  Discuss the findings of your chiropractic analysis and once fully understood

2.  Discuss your Program of Care and associated financial responsibilities.

It is recommended you bring any family members, significant others and friends that are involved in your life and your decisions.  There is no charge for this follow-up consultation.  Plan on spending 60 minutes at our office.

Should chiropractic care be appropriate for you, you can choose to begin care on this visit.  You will be taken to our comfortable adjusting suite where you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment; the first step towards regaining and maintaining your health.…
