North Carolina Chiropractor Gets Your Head on Straight
Thu, 23 Apr 2009, 11:44:18 ET

ASHEVILLE, N.C., April 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Atlas Family Chiropractic is excited to announce that they are offering state-of-the-art chiropractic therapies in their new Asheville, NC office located in the Pioneer Building at 190 Broadway Avenue, Suite 202. Dr. David Nygaard, MS, MBA, DC, Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist, Palmer College Graduate and owner of Atlas Family Chiropractic is a recognized expert in the advanced specialty of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic.

Atlas Family Chiropractic is not your run of the mill chiropractic care facility. They specialize in spinal decompression and Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic. Both therapies require intense training, advanced equipment and expertise.

The atlas is the top bone in the neck and is located at the base of the skull. When properly balanced, the atlas is perpendicular to the center of the skull and the cervical spine in a 90-degree relationship.

Subluxation or spinal misalignment can place measurable stress on the brainstem, its blood supply and the surrounding soft tissue. With the Atlas Orthogonal percussion instrument, Dr. Nygaard can precisely realign the atlas to relieve pain, restore body balance and enhance overall health and vitality.

Now, spinal decompression addresses herniated discs, bulging discs, facet syndrome, degenerative joint disease, pinched nerves, and other spinal afflictions. It is also a non-surgical and drug-free answer. With computer-aided assistance, Dr. Nygaard applies distraction forces to disc and spinal segments, removing nerve pressure and the cause of often debilitating pain.

At Atlas Family Chiropractic, the ATX 2, a state-of-the-art microprocessor-controlled decompression table, offers superior patient placement for optimal decompression results.

"We are committed to offering our patients drug free and non-surgical health solutions," Dr. Nygaard says. "We also want our patients to know that they are the boss - it's their bodies and we will work with them to clearly define and achieve their health care goals."
