Default Please share your atlas adjustment experiences with me!

Yesterday I started Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic treatment.
I went for my xrays and exam last week, which showed my atlas was tilted two degrees to the left, my legs were two different lengths, and my pelvis was not even. After the adjustment (which I didnít even feel) my legs and pelvis were even, and the X-ray showed my atlas was now only tilted .5 degrees.

I felt pretty tired after so I rested for the day and slept well, which I normally do. Today I have been experiencing a lot of neck pain and bad headaches. I was holding a heavy door open earlier and my hand slipped, so I quickly went to grab the door again, which hurt my shoulder muscles. Iím not sure if the muscles are just sore or if I pulled something in my shoulder/neck. I have been icing my neck multiple times today and yesterday and listened to all of the instructions.

The only other thing I can think of is last night I was adjusting my comforter and quickly hit it into the back of my head/neck. It is somewhat heavy when bunched up but didnít think a soft object that didnít move my head would cause any issues.

Does anyone have the same experience of feeling horrible the day after their first atlas adjustment? Itís so hard being in so much pain, and I hope this doesnít happen after every adjustment.

My adjustments were in 2005, for chronic repetitive motion/TOS, neck strain, uneven knees, hips, ribs, shoulders etc...
Probably most of my issues go back 50 years ago when I got bucked off a horse -- concussion w/LOC.

My chiro did the atlas adjustment & checks by using leg length , hip, shoulder checks (many times per adjustment to verify).
Actual adjustment was so easy & simple..no cranking or twisting at all.. you hardly know anything happens.. other than feeling more balanced overall. For me anyway.. I was getting many other therapeutic modalities instead of just atlas adjusting..Top rib adjust, IF stim, Low level laser, ultrasound, manual trigger point work...

I know the main focused atlas guys seem to think that is the only thing needed... but I disagree.. sometimes the whole body needs work done....
Past traumas/accidents , childhood falls & such..work & postures...

He suggested drinking extra water after sessions, and after any massage, PT or body work.. It helps to flush out the junk that gets released thru the therapy..
