Atlas question again!

The chiropractor felt they had the atlas where it belonged and wanted to lengthen the time between visits to allow his body to maintain it's position. HOWEVER, he passed out twice Monday and hit the floor both times, and also passed out today and hit the floor, which I'm sure is consistently knocking everything back out of whack. The doc also indicated today that surgeons won't work on the atlas/axis as far as permanent placement. We are looking into getting the MRI/MRA, but don't know how long that will take, even if it finds anything. We are at our wits end. Can you offer any further suggestions? We appreciate your time.
