The Atlas Difference

disc injury

In the Chiropractic profession there are many different ways of adjusting the spine to remove nerve interferences. As a board certified Atlas Orthogonist, Dr. Johnston is recognized as a specialist in the field of Chiropractic, with advanced training in the structure, function and biomechanics of the upper cervical spine. The Atlas Orthogonal procedure is scientifically designed program which demonstrates the need for chiropractic care. It is a system to reduce neurological insult by balancing anatomical structures without the use of manual manipulation. It incorporates the use of a state of the art floor-based percussion adjusting instrument and precision x-ray analysis.

Most other Chiropractors use methods of adjusting in which they feel thespine, then manually manipulate it by applying a force until a "popping sound" is heard. In the Atlas Orthogonal procedure, Dr. Johnston utilizes specific x-ray views of the cervical spine to see exactly how the vertebrae have misaligned. The information received from the x-ray analysis is then used to determine the precise vectors to which the patient will be adjusted. The Atlas Orthogonal Percussion instrument is then set with those vectors to accomplish the adjustment and correct the subluxation complex. The patient feels no force and hears no pops or cracks. It is a painless adjustment that has proven to be one of the safest, most effective means of removing neurological insult. Typically, patients adjusted this way stay in adjustment longer than most other Chiropractic patients. This means fewer adjustments, more cost-effective health care and happier patients.

"I thank you Dr. Roch for helping me lead headache free days, and also for knowing that I was not doing something wrong in my every day life in order to not be able to deal with stress!"

- Leslie E.

"I can't sing enough praises over the care Dr. Roch gives each of his patients. When my son got hit in the head accidentally and his headaches came blazing back, Dr. Roch saw him immediately and had him back in headache free state once again. I don't even want to think of where my son would be without Dr. Roch. He has proved to be a blessing in our lives."

- Julie H.

"With periodic adjustments and stretching exercises recommended by Doctor Johnston, my posture is better, I can touch my toes. I have no aches and pains when I am in adjustment and my body is more flexible in general. I have become quite picky about how I want to feel now that I know what to look for as signs of trouble. Thank you Dr. Johnston."
