Question What does an Atlas Orthoganist Chiropractor do?

What does an Atlas Orthoganist Chiropractor do? Do they treat the back and neck using the usual cracking methods that more run of the mill chiropractors use? Or is the treatment method they use a more gentle technique?

There seem to be quite a few Atlas Orthoganist Chiropractors in the USA, but here in the UK I have found only one from a search of the internet. I spoke to the chiropractor today on the phone, and I explained that I have TMJ dysfunction which I am having treated by a dentist with a splint and orthodontics. The chiropractor claimed that he could treat TMJ dysfunction without the need for dental treatment, which I somehow really doubt. It would concern me that if I did see this chiropractor, and he also tried treating my TMJ, that he might end up making it worse rather than better. Has anyone tried seeing an Atlas Orthoganist Chiropractor at the same time as TMJ dental treatment?

Check out NUCCA chiropracters too...IMO they are more educated upper cervical specialists..
