Make the pain go away
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic
with Dr. Tod Cahill (USA)
The Atlas Orthogonal (AO) Program is a revolutionary Advanced American Technology in chiropractic upper cervical techniques used to find and correct misalignment of the first vertebrae of the spine, the atlas bone. This procedure is based on scientific and biomechanical principles. The premise behind AO is that the first bone – the atlas – is central to the alignment of the remainder of the column.
AO is safe, painless, effective and non invasive.
AO is available exclusively at our Palm Jumeirah branch!

The causes of musculoskeletal pain are varied. Muscle tissue can be damaged by the wear and tear of daily activities. Nervous system compression ex: disc compression can cause numbness, radiating pain and system dysfunction. Trauma to an area (jerking movements, auto accidents, falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations, and direct blows to the muscle) also can cause musculoskeletal pain. Other causes of pain include postural strain, repetitive movements, overuse, and prolonged immobilization. Changes in posture or poor body mechanics may bring about spinal alignment problems and muscle shortening, therefore causing other muscles to be misused and become painful.
Dr. Tod Cahill is the Director of the Musculoskeletal Department and works closely with his Physiotherapy Team; Together they take care of all issues related to muscle, ligament, and tendon, bones and nerves. The Specialists treat the patient to recover from an injury or disorder, but also educate and assist in preventing reoccurring incidence.
