Upper Cervical : Atlas Doctors 

of Northern Virginia

 

The Atlas Orthogonal (AO) procedure is the most advanced technique in the chiropractic profession. Developed originally by the founders of chiropractic, Drs. DD and BJ Palmer, and advanced by Dr. Roy Sweat, the developer of the AO Method. Extensive research and clinical experience have shown that adjusting the Atlas vertebra, the top vertebra in the spine, profoundly effects the alignment of the entire spine.  The AO Method utilizes a gentle and precise table mounted percussion impulse instrument. There is no twisting, cracking or popping. Precise adjusting vectors are obtained utilizing digital imaging technology with computer aided analysis.  Watch the "Introduction to AO" video to understand how your spine is aligned and balanced through the AO procedure helping to achieve optimal health and vitality naturally. 

 

NEWS FLASH !!!  Dr. Lim and Dr. Krakos have been named the "Atlas Orthogonal 2014 Chiropractors of the Year" by the AO Foundation and Board.  This award is given annually to the AO doctors who have contributed most greatly to the advancement of the Atlas Orthogonal Technique and provided the highest quality of care to their patients.   CONGRATULATIONS.
