Before Atlas Zone Treatment

Mr. S presented with neck stiffness with rotation restriction, a total right knee replacement 8 years previously.and a large bunion on his right big toe ( the plantar pressure outline can be observed above). It can be observed that his right leg is loaded by 14kg more than his left.

After Atlas Zone Treatment

Immediately after Mr S received his Atlas Zone Treatment his weight bearing can be seen to be much more balanced and the plantar pressure at his bunion site has been totally reduced. One can conclude that Mr S has clearly distributed much more weight through his right lower extremity throughout his life resulting in degenerative changes in this limb due to excessive wear and tear. This may be as a result of Atlas Zone dysfunction.
