WHAT IS SONAR?
Sonar is an upper cervical technique. Precision Upper Cervical adjusting is a little-known chiropractic procedure that corrects the position of the top vertebra of the spine (the atlas), and treats the brainstem and upperspinal cord misalignment.
The atlas is a single, two ounce donut-shaped vertebra at the top of the spine. Trillions of nerve fibers from the brainstem and upper spinal cord travel through the small opening in the atlas and flow down into the spinal column. Because of the smallness of the atlas opening and the close proximity to the brainstem, if the atlas has moved out of position even a fraction of a degree, very serious things can result. The most direct way to improve your health is by removing the elements that interfere with normal body function.
The Sonar instrument does the repositioning of the atlas vertebra. It feels like a light tap at the side of the neck as the atlas is moved precisely back towards its correct position. The sensation is completely under-whelming. There is no twisting or popping of the neck. Patients are often surprised how gentle it is. Because of its gentleness, many people are able to have chiropractic care who may have thought they were no longer candidates for chiropractic. Even though the spinal correction takes place at the atlas, there are changes throughout the entire spine. We are focused on balancing the entire body through finding the actual problem area and not treating compensations.
The procedure cures nothing, but it allows the body to cure itself. It restores body balance and proper nerve flow so that organs, limbs, and tissues can resume normal functioning. This is why we see so many different conditions with no apparent relationship to each other responding to the Sonar procedure.
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health is as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. So if you’re sick and tired of being told, “You’ve just got to learn to live with it,” and are looking for a natural method of regaining health and wholeness without polluting your body with drugs and chemicals, why not join the ranks of those who have discovered the wonders of this amazing health care system? Only a Sonar spinal checkup can tell.
HOW DOES IT HELP SO MANY DIFFERENT SYMPTOMS?
God built within us the ability to heal ourselves. If the communication between the brain and body becomes disrupted, this ability degrades. The atlas is the top bone in the neck. It houses and protects the brainstem and upper spinal cord, which is the communication center between the brain and body. When the atlas misaligns, it irritates the delicate nerve tissue. The result is posture shifts and miscommunication between the brain and the body.
When the atlas is out of its proper position, it can create body imbalance from head to toe. As the vertebrae are rotated out of position, they can twist your entire spinal structure, including the pelvis, so that one leg appears shorter than the other. Not having your atlas corrected to restore body balance is like continuing to drive a car that is out of alignment. Over time, things will break down. You can keep replacing the tires, but unless you have the car aligned, you’ll just be wasting your money. Similarly, you can keep taking medication, but if your atlas is out of its proper position and causing the problem, you’re not going to get well until you get your atlas corrected.
Another serious result of a misaligned atlas is the restriction or distortion of critical messages at the brainstem and upper-spinal cord, disrupting the brain’s communication. Every cell, organ, or tissue that is not receiving adequate nerve energy and communication from the brain will suffer and degenerate.
Another service we perform is fitting you for custom orthotics. Did you know there’s research showing that custom-made orthotics are proven to reduce low back pain by 34.5%? But there’s a catch… there’s only one type of orthotic that provides these results. This orthotic we speak of is not an over-the-counter (OTC) like Dr. Scholl’s®. And it’s not a hard and rigid orthotic like you’d get at a podiatrist.
It’s a flexible and soft orthotic, hand-crafted by Foot Levelers, the only orthotic in the world with a patent to support all three arches of the foot. For almost 70 years, Foot Levelers has been making foot orthotics designed to provide more comfort and less pain. We are proud to be a certified provider of these orthotics.
Not only are rigid orthotics uncomfortable, they also ‘lock’ the foot into one position, limiting range of motion of the foot. The foot orthotics we provide allow full range of motion, regardless of activity. That’s an important piece of the rest of the body performing at its optimal level.
Another positive of Foot Levelers flexible orthotics is that they are guaranteed for one year, with a 100% money-back guarantee. It’s the best guarantee any orthotic company offers.
