Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor heals radio darling

ATLANTA (October 27, 2009) – Most women are always within reach of their beloved hand bags, and Christian radio traffic reporter Heidi Rew of 104.7 The Fish, was no different.

But when Heidi, 28, began to experience chronic and debilitating headaches, the radio darling never would have guessed her pain could be related to an oversized purse. After all, many women carry large hand bags, right?

Enter Dr. Matthew Sweat of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic, who after one consultation was able to attribute Heidi’s headaches to a disc misalignment. The culprit: her seven and one-half pound purse.

After taking X-rays, Dr. Matthew determined the misplaced disc was likely a left-over injury from a car accident nearly five years ago, and Heidi’s heavy hand bag was further nagging the pain.

Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic located on Chamblee Tucker Road in Atlanta practices a revolutionary method of chiropractic medicine that uses a miracle machine to send mild vibrations to the neck’s atlas – the top bone of the spinal cord that supports the skull – that helps realign the spine. This method requires no manipulation of the spine through physical adjustments. Dr. Roy Sweat, Dr. Matthew’s father, is the founder of the atlas orthogonal procedure, which has been featured on “The Doctors,” and “The Montel Williams Show.”

Before her referral to Dr. Matthew, Heidi had had been treated by several primary care physicians who prescribed steroids and muscle relaxers to relieve the pain. Even though an MRI indicated no obvious cause of the headaches, they did determine Heidi suffers from a low thyroid, which may have contributed to her headaches.

But after many years of ineffective treatments and inconclusive diagnoses, Heidi turned to Dr. Matthew, and after one treatment her tension was relieved immediately.

Heidi was so elated, she raved about Dr. Matthew and his treatment on-air saying, “I haven’t felt this good in years.” As for Heidi’s purse, Dr. Matthew asked that she consider a lighter accessory. For more information, contact Marilyn Pearlman at, or visit

“Atlas Orthogonal Advanced Procedures Atlanta Conference”
on October 17-18 was a huge success. The conference drew 100 Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors from as far away as Columbia, South America and Japan. With an interpreter’s assistance, Dr. Hajime Sega and his three colleagues not only listened attentively to Dr. Roy and Dr. Matthew Sweat, but also presented their case study entitled “The Strange Case of the Slipped Atlas”.

  Pastor David McCoy, Dr. Matthew Sweat’s patient victimized by Multiple Sclerosis, gave an inspirational talk on his miraculous improvement in symptoms since Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic treatments. He described how fear of the unknown gripped him when he could hardly walk as he descended the treadmill; and needing assistance to walk off the pulpit after delivering a eulogy at his church, People’s Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

One church member recommended Dr. Sweat; to stop her pleas, the skeptical Pastor McCoy made the 25 miles trip to Atlanta, Georgia to the offices of the Sweat Institute for Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. “I could hardly walk down the hallway to the examining room; but after the adjustment, I didn’t use my cane and I never use my wheelchair now.”  

As Pastor McCoy travels around the country preaching, he also motivates his listeners to never give up. “I STILL HAVE MS,” he says, “BUT I HAVE HOPE that I had lacked before my Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic treatment.” 

Dr. Dennis Fiorini, President of the Sweat Institute Foundation for Research, announced that on November 1st the Sweat Foundation will launch a National Fundraising Campaign to increase Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic’s Research and Educational training. Contributions are tax deductible.
