Matthew has over 30 years clinical experience as an osteopath qualifying from the British School of Osteopathy in 1987.
He is a member of the General Osteopathic Council, the British Acupuncture Council and the International Association of Qualified AtlasPROfilax Practitioners. Matthew is also a board member of the international association, part of his duties include interviewing and assessing future medical professionals desiring to train in the AtlasPROfilax method.
Matthew Voigts describes himself as an upper cervical specialist and is the only osteopath in the UK qualified to use the AtlasPROfilax method.
AtlasPROfilax is a Swiss technique developed by Rene Schumperlii that uses strategic and precisely targeted mechanical vibration and pressure to the short muscles – suboccipital muscles – of the neck. In this way the atlas is allowed to embed correctly in the condylar facets of the occiput..
A German MRI and 3D CAT Scan investigation has shown that 98 per cent of a healthy, modern population sample had atlas malrotation and that the AtlasPROfilax procedure was corrective for this condition.
Matthew has also carried out a measurement study on 350 patients using an iliac crest inclinometer (The Voigts Inclinometer and its use for measuring spinal junctional angles and straight leg raising test (SLRT)). This study indicates that the AtlasPROfilax procedure corrects pelvic misalignment and functional leg length discrepancy.
Matthew states that the AtlasPROfilax method, as well as improving spinal alignment, pelvic tilt and functional upper and lower limb length discrepancy, that many of his patients have reported improvements in symptoms such as head, neck and low back pain, dizziness, facial and jaw joint pain and also improvements in sleep quality and digestive symptoms.
