Yes, they are the cornerstone of the Upper Cervical Atlas Orthogonal doctor’s practice and these x-rays are very specialized, and unlike those you would normally get at a regular chiropractor or medical doctor. Most chiropractic equipment today along with lead aprons keeps radiation down to a minimum. The x-rays used in hospitals generate 100 times more radiation than the x-rays used by UC doctors. Also, you get more radiation from sitting in front of your TV set for 4 hours than from UC x-rays. Another example, you get more radiation from 10 hours in the hot Florida sun, than you would from 4 UC x-rays.
Plus, any minimal danger from radiation, in our opinion, cannot be compared to the destruction that is going on in your body every minute your atlas obstructs brain to body communication. Any shift the atlas makes can cause multiple health problems. But sometimes that shift in position is no greater than a few millimeters. The Upper Cervical doctor has to rely on x-rays to determine the exact position your Atlas vertebra have misaligned. The specific analysis of the x-rays will allow the doctor how to reposition your atlas back to the correct position it should be.

After correcting the Atlas, a second series of x-rays are taken as ‘post x-rays’ to determine how well the Atlas re-aligned and helps the doctor predict future patterns. These are referred to as pre and post x-rays. You will not be x-rayed every visit. Only 4 x-rays on your first visit, and 2 post x-rays on your second visit… and you are than on your way to feeling better & good health.
