NYC Chiropractic Specialist Relocates to Bronxville

Dr. Paul V. Scarborough

Dr. Paul V. Scarborough, a chiropractor and a board certified Atlas Orthogonist from New York City, has opened a new practice in Bronxville, called Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. Atlas Orthogonal is a subspecialty in the field of chiropractic that concentrates on the upper cervical spine, a vital area in structural balance.

According to Scarborough, he is able to accurately reposition the atlas vertebra—the topmost upper cervical vertebra—using a noninvasive, gentle procedure without pain or pressure. His procedure achieves proper alignment without cracking or popping of the spine or neck.

“Many symptoms can be relieved by correcting the atlas vertebra. Patients have had positive results with chronic pain, sciatica, migraines and neck and back pain. People come from all over—out of state and out of the country,” says Scarborough.

“Patients who move to New York from other areas and are AO patients can still enjoy the benefit of this treatment with the same angles used from the home practitioner,” adds Scarborough. Atlas Orthogonal utilizes a stationary instrument that can reproduce the treatment when needed each time the patient comes in, eliminating any human error.

“I got into this line of work after injuries from motorcycle riding and sports,” shares Scarborough. “I was treated by a chiropractor who helped me in the 1980s.”

Scarborough was trained directly by the pioneer and developer of the Atlas Orthogonal Program, Roy W. Sweat, DC, of the Sweat Institute, in Atlanta, Georgia. Scarborough met Sweat in late 1994 and began his studies concurrently as a chiropractic student. 

“I first saw a video fluoroscopy of how the atlas vertebra moved with the adjusting instrument; it made so much sense to me early on,” states Scarborough. “I knew then as a student of chiropractic that I would set out to practice chiropractic upper cervical utilizing the Atlas Orthogonal Percussion Adjusting Instrument.”
