About Rogue Valley Chiropractic Clinic
Founder of the Atlas Orthogonal Procedure
Dr. Roy Sweat, the founder of the atlas orthogonal procedure, devised a method using a percussion wave, which is a vibration to re-position the atlas vertebra.
Dr. Sweat is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities in the world on the cervical spine.
Rogue Valley Chiropractic Clinic Founder
Rogue Valley Chiropractic was founded by Dr. Gustav Schefstrom in 1981 with a commitment to the health and well-being of its residents. Over the last 30 years, Dr Gus has discovered that with patients taking an active role in their health and chiropractic care they can actually feel better as they get older.
Our Typical Patients:
Our Doctors have seen and treated thousands of head and neck pain patients and significantly help over 80%.
Has a history of mild to severe headaches that have not responded in any lasting way to other forms of treatment. Most of these patients have tried some form of alternative treatment (chiropractic, naturopath, massage, etc.) but continue to have problems that significantly effect their lives. Many survive on medication that has potentially dangerous side effects on the liver and kidneys. These patients often do not realize the impact that their pain has on family and work.
Neck Pain Patient:
Has a history of neck pain caused by some form or trauma, or by a long series or microtrauma (sitting at a desk, computer work, dental hygienist work, etc.) These patients constantly feel a need to rub their necks, or may even pop or snap their necks to try and find relief. Neck pain typically effects sleep and mood.
Whiplash/Job Injury Patient:
Has a history of a recent or long-ago neck/upper back injury that has not resolved on its own or with treatment. The Journal of Whiplash and Related Disorders recently reported that 84% of these patients see complete or near complete resolution of pain after undergoing Atlas Orthogonal Treatment.
Our Scoliosis patients are of all ages. Recent understandings of the Atlas misalignments and their relationship to Scoliosis and Kyphosis has stimulated the combination of Scoliosis treatment and Atlas Orthogonal adjustments.
