LIFE TOGGLE RECOIL SPINOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS An adjustive thrust properly delivered at the correct place but only at the right time assures Chiropractic results. To know when to adjust means to know when and where nerve interference exists. To know how to adjust requires spinographs to know how the vertebra moved to its letter listing or analyzed position – then the ability to apply the laws of mechanics when making contact, line of drive, torque and thrust. The spinograph determines misalignments and not subluxations. The Tytron, or the Analagraph/Nervoscope and or a Grostic Supine Leg Check determines interference. Three Parts to Specific Upper Cervical Spinographic Analysis Part 1 Scrutinize the set (Lateral, A-P natural and Vertex views) of films for anomalies, patient mal-position, pathology, fractures dislocations, etc. Part 2 Determine the directions in misalignment by atlas-axis comparison. Anomalies and patient mal-position must be considered. In the majority of cases this decision is instantaneous. Part 3 Read each film separately via line drawing analysis to determine the doctor’s stance, point of contact, line of drive, torque, etc. The procedure in Part 2 is fast, simple and as accurate as in humanly possible. Time is always a factor in the Chiropractic office. 1

LATERAL VIEW The lateral spinograph is a very important view. It determines the posterior inferior axis, the anterior superior or inferior atlas, reveals the anterior posterior curvatures, exostosis and ankylosis, pathology, fractures and dislocations. Pathology, fractures and dislocations may exist and are often not visible on the regular A-P Open Mouth. Always include the lateral view in your spinographic set. The lateral view is used to determine the posteriority of the axis vertebra. Posteriority is indicated by the posterior line of axis being posterior to that of 3 rd cervical, etc. All posterior body lines in cervical region make an arc. This line of axis also breaks the continuity of this arc. Ordinarily however, axis does not move P.I. Further indications refer to the definite point wedge between the zygapop of axis and 3 rd cervical. The sagittal position of the atlas is determined from the lateral radiograph. The angle of the atlas plane line indicates superiority and inferiority of the atlas. The atlas plane in drawn through the thinnest part of the posterior arch and the center of the anterior tubercle. The normal anatomical atlas angle at the posterior is between 8 and 10 degrees to the horizontal line drawn through the anterior tubercle parallel to the inferior/superior edge of the film. From a horizontal, anteriority is always listed because the atlas moves to some degree anterior as it moves superior or inferior. A-P Open Mouth VIEW
