Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Care
The atlas is the uppermost bone of the spine, which has the important job of protecting the brainstem. The brainstem is the transitional area where the brain starts its communication with the spinal cord. Misalignments of this area cause stress and pressure on the entire nervous system. This creates a chain reaction of: head-tilt, compensatory misalignment at lower levels of the spine, diminished nervous system function, and other symptoms in the head, neck and any other region of the body.
In addition to this, the most recent research has shown that restrictions in this upper cervical region of the spine create diminished cerebral spinal fluid flow – causing other compensatory reactions, and symptomatology throughout the entire body – a syndrome known as Cranial Cervical Syndrome by the medical community, and for over 100 years known as Upper Cervical Subluxation by the Chiropractic profession.
Activator Methods is the most widely practiced Chiropractic techniques and is known for being safe, gentle, well studied and effective. Activator method uses an instrument to perform the Chiropractic adjustment. The instrument produces enough force to move the vertebrae and stimulate muscles to relax, while producing no extra unnecessary force, in order to remain gentle and comfortable.
This Chiropractic technique is gentle enough, yet effective enough, to be useful for individuals with spinal fusions, degenerative spinal conditions, osteoporosis and extreme muscle spasm. An adjustment with the Activator instrument uses a very quick, precise and measured force to restore proper movement to the vertebrae and move them back into place.

Effectively combining these powerful modalities, and more, is what makes us so special. We have combined the best of the best, into a formula built for your success. In addition to these techniques a number of other fantastic techniques are used when necessary to achieve the best results, including: Gonstead Technique, Cox Flexion Distraction, Thompson Drop Technique, Diversified Technique, SOT, ART and Extremity adjusting.
We pride ourselves on using the best techniques available – and applying them at the correct times. In fact, this is something that sets us apart from the vast majority of Chiropractors you will find.
I have been going to Meehan Chiropractic for probably 8 plus years and on occasion in need of some serious care. Never once have I ever been let down in my expectations and have always been very satisfied with my health outcome. From being rear ended due to an auto accident, having chronic pain in different areas of my body, to now a serious osteoporosis spine issue. Every office visit seems to bring me relief and always closer to my healing goal.
From the time you walk through the door you feel at home. The well trained and caring office staff really have it together and genuinely put your needs (and pain) first.
The chiropractors will actually listen to your story and "complaints" and with you put a healing plan together. Your journey may be short or longer than you would wish, but be assured they want you well and on your healthy way as soon as possible.
When the pain hits . . . this is the office that I find myself heading for. Yes, sometimes its difficult to make the decision to by pass the "main stream, drug way", but I have never once regretted my chosen path. Also, they will be open to work with your primary physician as well.
What a great team and I appreciate every one of them.

I have been so pleased with Meehan Chiroproactic and Wellness.
I had never been to a chiropractor so I was skeptical. Truly, I am happy I came. Dr. Meehan is helping me with some issues not only with my neck but also when my thermogram came back with not so positive results. I can't wait until my next Thermogram b/c we know some positive changes are already happening.
He also helped my 7 year old son who has a problem with in-toeing. Amazing what he did in a matter of minutes. I plan on taking both my kids and my husband here and would highly recommend Dr. Meehan and his staff to anyone!

My very first visit I felt comfortable.
Gina greeted me with a smile and was very friendly. Dr Meehan personally greeted me with a handshake and spent a lot of time answering all my questions and explaining procedures for a plan needed for me. I appreciated the time spent and immediately scheduled my upcoming appointments.
My second visit showed signs of improvement which gives me a positive attitude for the future.
