The use of secondary adjustments may be necessary for the full restoration of your health and your spine. Dr. Nygaard uses the PulStar Instrument to evaluate and correct the spine without any twisting, cracking or popping. To fully understand why the spine can misalign, it is important to understand an important function of the brain. Balance and alignment of the spine is controlled by the brain. Signals from the brain control the muscles of the spine and core that keep the spine stable. If you have imbalanced signals from the brain, you will lose stability in your spine, and the joints of the spine can begin to move poorly and misalign. Correcting the atlas misalignment through Atlas Orthogonal care is an important first step toward spinal restoration, but further adjusting may be necessary.
