Before we can get into the more nuanced discussions around chiropractic care, it’s best to understand what exactly we do and how Drs. Rachel and Tri Meyers’ practices differ.

We’ll divide the conversation over two episodes so we can dedicate full shows to each type of care, and we’ll start with Ammons Chiropractic Clinic and the Atlas Orthogonal technique on this episode. The name itself is derived from the atlas bone, which is the first bone in the neck. As you can imagine, it’s incredibly important to your health because it helps hold the skull. Your brain and spine coordinate your entire nervous system, so you want to keep these in good health to prevent disease and pain.

One of the most notable differences in Atlas Orthogonal care is that it’s a much gentler procedure. You won’t hear or feel all of those cracks and pops that are often associated with chiropractors, and that’s why this care can be used by anyone in the family. Practically any age can benefit from the science behind the Atlas Orthogonal technique.

Dr. Rachel Myers will take you through the background of her business, explain the science, and lay out the benefits for making this a regular part of taking care of your health.

Stay tuned for the next episode where we’ll talk all about Omega Chiropractic.
