The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Method incorporates a gentle, yet effective technique that uses no physical manipulation. This method is so gentle that many patients cannot believe an adjustment has actually taken place until they notice that their discomfort has been relieved!
Atlas is the top vertebrae of the spine and supports the head.
Orthogonal means “at right angle to or square”. If the Atlas is not square to the head and Spine (referred to as subluxated) then the head and spine are by necessity out of alignment . Essentially, if the head is not on straight then the spine cannot possibly be straight. The resulting stress that ensues may cause discomfort to the back, shoulders, pelvis, hips, knees and ankles.
The Activator Method takes a more hands on approach to chiropractic services.
Evolved from 35 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research, the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) uses the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations to seek joint dysfunction in the spinal column and extremities for improved patient care.
AMCT uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument to give consistent low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments. Over 35,000 doctors have been trained in AMCT and 2,100 doctors are Proficiency Rated, making AMCT the most widely used technique worldwide; a testament to low force patient satisfaction.
Another technique used in Dr. Johnston’s office is called The Gonstead Chiropractic method. This technique is characterized by a very thorough analysis of the patient using a variety of different parameters in order to determine the specific areas of stress in the spine (subluxations). These subluxations, in turn, are corrected with a highly precise and specific adjustment.
The result: a faster, better, and more permanent correction of your spine than can be obtained from general mobilization/manipulation methods.
