WHO NEEDS THE TREATMENT?
The AtlasPROfilax® Technique is for everyone, from babies to the elderly.
The spine of elderly people may never be perfectly levelled, but tensions and pains could be greatly reduced, their balance and posture may improve and they would have a much better quality of life.
Anyone with problems with the spine, neck and joints are highly recommended to check their C1 alignment. However, we recommend this procedure to nearly everyone for the purpose of prevention, as according to studies, 98 % of humans beings have the Atlas out of alignment (at different degrees) from birth, due to an inherited defect or to the mechanical stress during the birth process.
Traumas, such as whiplash, falls, intubation during surgery under total anaesthesia, can worsen the misalignment.
The conventional medicine does not consider the Atlas misalignment a possible cause of disorders in the patient, furthermore it does not show up in regular X-rays or magnetic-resonance imaging. As a result this problem generally goes undiagnosed.
