Dr. Rick DiGregorio received his Doctor of Chiropractic from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. He is a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist through Sherman College of Chiropractic. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is a specialty within the chiropractic field.
What is an Atlas Orthogonist?
The Atlas Orthogonist is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic who, in addition to six or more years of education, utilizes a light force method of specifically adjusting the spine. The Atlas Orthogonist has undergone extensive training specializing in correcting spinal misalignment by using the atlas orthogonal percussion instrument. This method is gentle and effective and requires post graduate training. Dr DiGregorio is a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist. The Atlas Orthogonal system is a painless and safe spinal correction which restores body balance and increases the body's natural healing ability.
How Does Atlas Orthogonal Differ from other Chiropractic Techniques?
One of the most obvious differences is the gentle, painless way in which an Atlas Orthogonist works. No manipulation (twisting or cracking) is ever employed or needed. The Atlas Orthogonist's methods require such light touches to the affected area, that patients who may expect a forceful manipulation as part of their treatment, find it hard to believe that anything effective has been accomplished. But, their doubts and fears vanish as quickly as their pain and discomfort.
He has been studying Upper Cervical Chiropractic for over 25 years, and has had an office in Monroe, Michigan for 20 of those years. He currently is seeing patients at Atlas Spine and Wellness Care in Charleston, SC. Highly regarded in his field, he is often called to mentor those eager to learn the Atlas Orthogonal technique.
