Scientific Studies on AtlasPROfilax®
The surprising postulation by RC Shűmperli of a Minor Intervertebral Disarrangement or Caudal-Caudal Diversion as a practically universal phenomenon in humans as an instrinsic physiopathological condition and the application of the AtlasPROfilax® Method for its correction have led scientists from several disciplines to investigate this phenomenon.
Study of the “Diagnosticum Institut” of Germany
Since 2004, the Diagnosticum Institute, belonging to the German University of Witten-Herdecke, has started an independent study on the AtlasPROfilax® Technique of RC Shűmperli. The aim of the study was not to determine the therapeutic scope of the method, but rather its main postulate namely that “humans, in their entirety, suffer from a caudal cranial deviation of the atlas with rotation and inclination”. We also wanted to evaluate whether the AtlasPROfilax® Technique was effective in correcting the atlas malfunction.
Radiologically determining the exact position of the atlas in relation to the occiput and axis, as well as a comparative examination before and after the AtlasPROfilax® therapy was the basis of the study.
Bases of the study
The study had to determine if it is true that there is a caudal skull deviation of the atlas of probably congenital origin in the human with rotation and inclination and the correction of the same using AtlasPROfilax® Method.
The study helped to determine 3 essential points:
- The existence and where appropriate the scope of a malrotation of the atlas
- The effectiveness of AtlasPROfilax®
- Possible side effects of the application of the technique
Several patients were studied for 5 years with CT in 3D 9computerized axial tomography). Several diagnostic scanners were used for the image of Philips and Siemens of last generation. Patients were subjected to 3D scanner images before and after performing the AtlasPROfilax® method.
The sample of the first study was of 114 patients:
