Think of your head as a fist and your body as the pointing finger. If you put a tight rubber band around the base of the finger, it would change color because blood can’t flow properly. No matter what you try, unless you take off that rubber band, the blood flow problem stays.
Similarly, if there’s a problem with the atlas in your neck, it can cause problems anywhere in your body, like foot pain or even kidney issues. But the real problem is in the neck, not the foot or kidney. If this neck issue isn’t fixed, parts of your body can start to wear out. Often, we only realize there’s a problem when something starts to hurt, which can be very late in the process.
This neck misalignment can cause long-term damage to the spinal discs in your spine. When your body leans more to one side, it puts uneven weight on the discs. Over time, this can make them wear out quicker, leading to more problems later on.
