By 1943, Dr. Zimmerman had developed and perfected a system for taking stereo (third dimension) x-rays down through the foramen magnum. This procedure reveals the location of the atlas and axis and their mechanical relation to the neural canal. Two views taken down through the hole-in-the-head plus a side view and a front-to-back constitute an x-ray set. Analysis of these x-rays provides the information needed to make the proper adjustment.
From the very beginning of his practice, Dr. Zimmerman was dedicated to the problem of removing nerve pressure as permanently as possible. This meant a constant study to improve methods of contacting and adjusting the atlas (or axis) is being adjusted.
