There is a clear relationship between the cervical spine and the respiratory and pelvic diaphragms. If the upper cervical spine is affected, excess tension will be transferred to the cervical and endothoracic fascia (inside the thorax), which will spread to the diaphragms, negatively affecting the pelvic floor musculature. This can be seen in incontinence and painful intercourse.
AtlasPROfilax® has been shown to be highly effective (85%) in improving the pelvic floor. This improvement related to the sacrococcygeal zone becomes more evident six months after the treatment.
In cases of urinary and fecal incontinence, AtlasPROfilax® has an 80% success rate. Improvement is progressive.
In patients affected by scoliosis and pelvic floor weakness, changes with AtlasPROfilax® are conditioned by the degrees of scoliosis, the chronicity of scoliosis and the age of the patient. Corrections tend to be faster and more effective in young people and in minor scoliosis.
In dyspareunia (painful intercourse) it should be noted that it affects more women than men but occurs in both sexes. In men it is usually the result of urethral infections, bladder or prostate problems, phimosis, or STDs. In women it is due to painful puerperal edema, episiotomy, vaginitis, vaginal infection, scarce lubrication, allergy, or STDs. AtlasPROfilax® improves by 60% the dispareunias that are not related to organic processes or by infection, allergy or Sexually Transmitted Disease.
Pelvic floor weakness can lead to pain and incontinence among other problems. Although AtlasPROfilax® is highly effective in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, in many cases it is necessary for the patient to perform a specific exercise routine to stimulate and strengthen this area of the body (Kegel exercises) and to consult a physical rehabilitator for this purpose.
Many pelvic floor disorders are caused by bladder, uterus or prostate surgery. Every surgical intervention represents a limitation for the correction of the Atlas MID to make improvements more visible. Overweight, hormonal disorders, erectile dysfunction, genitourinary infections are also serious limitations for AtlasPROfilax®.
The external region of the pelvic floor is formed by pubis, coccyx and ischions. In its internal region, its ligaments and muscles support the bladder, urethra, uterus, genitals and rectum within the pelvis. The weakness of this soil is the cause of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and gas, descent of uterus and bladder, and sexual problems (erectile dysfunction, dyspareunia).
It is not our intention that readers of this website assume that the Minor Intervertebral Derangement of the Atlas is the only cause of the health problems listed earlier in this section. Pain is usually a warning sign that there is an actual or potential tissue damage, so it is necessary to see a specialist to determine its possible causes.
E.g. headaches or local pain can have many causes and can also be a sign of an ongoing disease. Even apparent benign muscle pain can indicate a metabolic, immune, vascular or joint condition. Therefore, if you have any of these health problems, please contact your doctor and follow the proper treatment. Remember to manage your health quickly.
AtlasPROfilax® is a kinesiological method that supports allopathic and natural medicine as well as orthopedic dentistry. In no case does it interfere with or replace medical and/or dental treatments or medicines. The only purpose is to correct the MID of the Atlas to improve the quality of life of the patient and turn their body into a more fertile ground for any subsequent treatment and therapy.
The same way that a large number of patients react quite well to complementary medicine specialties (homeopathy, neural therapy, acupuncture, naturopathy, aromatherapy, nutraceuticals, osteopathy, chiropractic, massages, energy therapies, etc.), there is always a population that, due to a lack of receptivity to these techniques or due to the condition of their own health, does not have the expected results.
Likewise, as Chilean biologists Maturana and Varela state, "Living beings are networks of molecular productions where the produced molecules generate their interactions in the same network that produces them". This principle of autopoiesis, which deals with self-production and self-regulation, explains why some patients evolve favorably with a therapy while others don't.
All the above is to point out that the atlas MID correction has been shown to be highly effective in reducing benign chronic myofascial pain, in some functional alterations of posture as well as in the rearrangement of the Tonic Postural System. However, as in any specialty of complementary medicine, the results are proportional to the patient's autopoiesis.
There are several probable etiologies for the development of problems and pain in the body, from endogenous (genetic, congenital, autoimmune, etc.), exogenous (allergic, iatrogenic, pathogenic, etc.), environmental (mechanical and postural, ergonomic, professional, etc.) and multifactorial (neoplastic, idiopathic, psychosomatic, etc.) alterations.
The misalignment of the Atlas had not been taken into account up until the development of Osteopathy in 1874 by A. Taylor Still, M.D. and the birth of Chiropractic in 1895 by D. D. Palmer. The concept of Minor Intervertebral Desarrangement was included in 1969 by R. Maigne, M.D. The MID of the Atlas, studied in depth for 20 years by Dr. R.-C. Schümperli, E.M., was published in 1993.
The MID of C1 is one of the factors that triggers myofascial pain, but it is not the only one. Minor Intervertebral Derangement of any area of the spine may be painfully projected into certain muscles and ligaments. This to point out that the MID of C1 is not a justification for all myofascial pain, although the correction of this MID helps to reverse MIDs from other areas.
The correction of the MID of C1 has been highly favorable for the following cases:
