At McHugh Chiropractic and Healthcare we specialize in the Atlas Orthogonal Technique. The Atlas Orthogonal Technique is a non-manipulative approach to chiropractic care that focuses on aligning the first bone in the spine, the Atlas. With proper alignment of the atlas bone, the spine can remain stable and allow the body to begin to heal itself. The atlas bone is the "Master Control" bone that influences the other 23 vertebra of the spine into a corrected position allowing the nervous system to freely control and heal the body of pain and disease. The Atlas Orthogonal technique uses percussion sound waves to gently align the atlas with no stress on the spine.

Activator Technique:                                      Delivers a small impulse to the spine moving the vertebrae into the corrected position. 

Sacro Occipital Blocking Technique (SOT):   Focuses on methods of correcting the Cranium, Pelvis, Extremities and Organs using "blocks" strategically placed under regions of the body while the patient lies flat. 

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy:                           Is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strains are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.

Flexion Distraction Technique:                        Stretching of the spine that allows manually applied traction to be delivered to specific spinal segments.

Thompson Drop Technique:                        Analyzes leg length to determine which joints are effected and need to be adjusted. This helps facilitate the physiological joint function while decreasing pain and inflammation, and promoting proper nerve function.
