The upper cervical joints (atlas/axis) are the most complex in the human body and the most mobile spinal joints. When the the atlas is subluxated, or not optimally aligned, it places stress on the spinal cord/brain stem and many other nerves that control your body.

Using state-of-the-art digital x-rays and computerized x-ray analysis, Seattle Upper Cervical Chiropractor Dr. Jared Kohler is able to determine each persons unique correction formula and deliver a very gentle and precise atlas correction for his patients. The atlas correction is made using the Sweat Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting Instrument: a high-tech percussion adjusting instrument developed Dr. Roy Sweat and engineers at Georgia Tech University in the early 70’s. The instrument delivers a very gentle force and involves no popping or cracking of the neck. People often feel an immediate feeling of well being and relaxation afterwards. And over the course of several weeks, many have a significant resolution of their pain and symptoms. Dr. Kohler trained directly with Dr. Roy Sweat, Dr. Matt Sweat and Dr. Daniel Lewis and is one of only 3 Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractors in the Seattle area and he is dedicated to mastering this vital adjustment.
