It is with great pleasure that Dr. Louis Vita accepted the prestigious award of 2020 Atlas Orthogonal Humanitarian of the Year.
It has been Dr. Vita's distinct pleasure and honor to be extensively involved with the advancement of Atlas Orthogonal treatment and its correlation with TMJ treatment protocols. He comments, "The most important benefit has been and continues to be helping patients receive beneficial treatment that betters their lives and treats the cause of their problems rather than simply treating the symptoms." Dr. Vita has worked side by side with Dr. Angelo Colavita, Atlas Orthogonal Specialist, for the past 15 years to accomplish these goals.
Dr. Vita states, "I knew the revolutionary Atlas Orthogonal treatment, born out of the invention, research and development of Dr. Roy Sweat was invaluable for patients who suffer from head, neck and facial pain. It became apparent that many of our patients who present with TMJ problems have contributing issues with atlas misalignment." Thousands of patients over the years have been successfully treated in the Vita Head, Neck and Facial Pain Relief Center by combining the therapies of TMJ and Atlas Orthogonal treatments to significantly and positively affect their lives.
Dr. Vita counts it a privilege to share in this work which allows our patients to thrive.
