"It's The Most Amazing Thing
That Has Ever Happened to Me"
"I suffer from MS, I have extreme neuralgic pain in the lower extremities, I'm in pain 24 hours a day seven days a week 365 days a year, and then I go to see this doctor... I've had pain in my feet, I've struggled with my balance... I am walking differently, my pain is less, I have already regained strength in my left leg... it's the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me…”

"I've gone through the last three seasons feeling the best I've ever felt"
"I've been coming to atlas orthogonal for the last three years since 1998... Before I came to atlas orthogonal -- a lot of headaches... If I can come in and continue to have these treatments, and they can continue to help me the way they've helped me, maybe I can continue to last for another eight years."

"It was magic... a Miracle"
"I had an accident where I was hit in the head with something and I was having a lot of neck and shoulder pain. A friend of mine told me about atlas orthogonal.... It was magic. A miracle. Truly, I'd been living with a certain amount of pain every day for about ten years and suddenly I walked out of the office with not a speck of pain. Big difference going ... The pain was completely gone immediately."

"You have literally saved my life!"
"I was at a point where, after 18 years of pain and suffering, there was no point in continuing to try to live with unbearable pain, which only got worse as I got older. I had run the whole gamut of doctors who would not listen to my symptoms and offered no help except drugs, that made me even sicker... Without Dr. Liebell I would never have found so much help…my neck and back, thanks to his treatments are nearly 100 percent better.

"I believe this integrated sytem will take its place among the greatest medical breakthroughs of our time"
“As a dentist specializing in TMJ, head, neck and facial pain, I have come to realize the importance of integrating the Atlas Orthogonal Technique in the treatment of patients with structural distortions…"

"Praise the Lord; I can actually go to sleep!"
"One of the worst problems was the pain in my neck. A surgeon told me to take hot showers, that I had arthritis and nothing could be done. That was 9 years ago... A sports doctor put me on Paxil and I was taking Voltarin for “arthritis.” He sent me to physical therapy, but it never took the pain away. By the second week of treatment [with Atlas Orthogonal] I was flying high—I felt wonderful. I guess for the last 4 or 5 years, I didn’t know what it was like to sleep the whole night through."
- Joyce White. Virginia Beach, 2000
“I whole-heartedly endorse this diagnostic and treatment method"
"As a medical doctor with thirty-five years of clinical experience, I feel that most patients with acute and chronic neck pain or headaches should be considered for Atlas Orthogonal treatment."

Now I can get up in the morning without neck pain, and I rarely get headaches!
"For many years my neck bothered me almost every morning. When I'd look up, tilting my head back, my hearing would mysteriously cut out. I also had headaches every single day. As a professional ballet instructor, I was unable to demonstrate properly because of the pain... Now, thanks to Dr. Liebell and Atlas correction, I'm finally out of pain. My life is so much better. I sleep better than ever. Now I know how important your nervous system and spinal alignment is. My hearing problem is gone too, as a result of atlas corrections!

This Treatment is Wonderful!
"When I began I could not raise my arm very far or even put it behind my back. It is very wonderful to have full mobility and strength in my arm, neck and shoulders. Dr. Liebell is a loving and delightful human being as are his two knowledgeable ladies who work with him. They each one take time to personalize the patients’ care and needs! You must call and make an appointment. Do not wait any longer."

My life was changed in about 2/3 of a second
"It was the first time in twelve years that I was not in pain... ... But the best part is that I'm up and around seven days a week now and going back to the normal life that I enjoyed twelve years ago - something I haven't really seen in over a decade
- Jay Glazer, Senior Writer FOX Sports
You Gave Me My Life Back!
"My mind and body had been on such a roller coaster ride for three years... I started to have severe pain in my neck and at the base of my head. I lived in silence for about a year until it became unbearable... I went to pain management and was given steroid injections...I was so discouraged and felt that my only option was to take pain pills... I truly could not do anything. I could not even hold my new grandson... After the first treatment [Atlas Orthogonal] I walked out of the office and felt a big difference... I highly recommend Dr. Liebell and would like to thank him for giving me back my life.

"We want every single patient we have under care to have their spine examined by an Atlas Orthogonist"
"I am saddened by the thousands, and probably millions, of patients that have problems that could be helped by Atlas Orthogonal, but don’t know that it exists. If the alignment is wrong, the nerve system is not going to work well no matter how good their nutrition is, they are not going to be able to assimilate that nutrition sufficiently. The majority of cancer cases we see have overt cervical spinal problems, even the ones who don’t have a history of spinal trauma."
