Your Durango Chiropractors at Atlas Specific are known for being experts in their field. Doctors Timothy Dugas and Danielle Donarski are 2 of only 1,200 Upper Cervical Specific Doctors in the world. The care they deliver is a postdoctoral specialty, requiring extra training and advanced certification within the field of Chiropractic.


We are dedicated to EMPOWERING individuals with chronic, debilitating, and neurological issues who have not found prior results in order to reclaim their life.  We are driven to help people get well and stay well naturally. We know that, “with every breath of life there is HOPE.”


We’ve curated the best that Modern and Traditional Chiropractic has to offer.  We utilize the most specific form of Chiropractic Care, Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic, which removes interference in the upper part of the neck where the brainstem sits.  We combine our core Upper Cervical Care with Traditional Full Spine Chiropractic, as well as gentle forms of both, to balance the body, mind, and spirit. We believe in treating the CAUSE, not the SYMPTOM.


We are specific

We are the ONLY Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic Center in the ENTIRE 4 Corners.  We take specialized x-rays in order to determine the listing of the top two bones in your spine.  Your listing determines the type of adjustment you need in order to clear out your subluxation. X-rays allow us to avoid guessing as to how to correct your subluxation.  We use objective measures to determine if you actually NEED an adjustment (our goal is NOT to adjust). Our approach integrates gentle low force, instrument, and structural adjusting techniques to ensure specific corrections.

We are holistic

We believe in the power and specificity of the Chiropractic adjustment in restoring integrity to the nerve system.  Our analysis focuses on the spine and nerve system, yet acknowledges irregularities elsewhere. We encounter countless physical, chemical, and emotional stressors daily. Our comprehensive approach takes the whole system into consideration and addresses a wide range of imbalances in the body. We may recommend lifestyle strategies to help support you in adapting to those stressors.

We are vitalistic

Whether you are experiencing specific health concerns, want to enhance your health potential, or prevent future complications, we are happy to serve you. Our focus is on helping your body function at its highest level by removing interference in your nerve system through Specific Chiropractic adjustments.  When interference in your body is removed, your potential is limitless.​


"I absolutely love Atlas Specific and Doctors Tim and Danielle so much! This incredible place is a one-stop-shop for optimal health and wellness. I have had chronic neck pain from a car accident more than half my life and my work with Dr Tim has completely relieved all pain and discomfort in my neck and in between my shoulders. I swear the work I did with Dr Tim strengthened my neck and spine so much that now, whenever I feel it about to misalign, it naturally goes back into alignment on its own.

Whenever I am in need of a full-spine adjustment there is no one like Dr Danielle, she knows exactly how to get some of the hard to reach spots, in the most nurturing way. Even if I am not in need of an adjustment, spending 5 minutes with these incredible people puts a smile on my face. Durango is so fortunate to have such caring and passionate healers at Atlas Specific."
