Dr. Roy W. Sweat
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic
The Sweat Institute is home of the founder, pioneer and developer of the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Program, Dr. Roy W. Sweat, and his son, Dr. Matthew H. Sweat. The doctors offer a combined experience of more than 63 years in providing the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic technique. Patients fly in and travel from all over the world to The Sweat Institute to have their Atlas adjusted. The art and science of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is the study of the spine with specific concentration on the first bone in the neck, the Atlas vertebrae. A conventional chiropractic adjustment is done with the Doctor’s hands, but Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic utilizes a precise, repeatable, x-ray- analyzed chiropractic program to adjust the Atlas vertebrae by a percussive force Instrument. In doing so, the Doctors remove nerve interference.
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s engineering department helped Dr. Sweat develop, define and refine the x-ray vector program of adjusting. Seven AO Instruments have been updated for precision and excellence over the years. The R.W. Sweat Foundation research studies have helped millions of patients and their families, students and doctors. And since its development there have been numerous books and articles on the subject.
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is taught at five Chiropractic Colleges, and is practiced in six countries and at more than 600 chiropractic practices worldwide. Medical doctors, neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, dentists and other chiropractors refer their patients to the Sweat Institute for Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic.
The Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustment is easy, painless and full of incredible results without manipulation. Your Cervical Spine is vital to your health and well-being. Healing takes time. Human nature tempts to put off seeking relief for our physical problems, and then makes us impatient for relief. Remember, only a thorough treatment plan can provide lasting relief. There are no shortcuts to good health. Time and professional care are the only answers.
