Is Your Head on Straight?

Prior history of a traumatic injury to the head or neck

A slip and fall injury, car accident, sports injury, bump on the head, poor posture, or bad habits can cause neck to hold the head in a misaligned position.

One-sided weakness and neurological issues

Upper cervical misalignment stresses the nervous system causing muscular tension imbalance. This translates into pain in different body parts.

Chronic pain that have not been resolved over 6 months

When the upper cervical spine is misaligned, the head moves off the center and creates body imbalance from head to toe. If the atlas (c-1) is structurally misaligned, it can twist the entire spinal structure including the pelvis.

Some of the many symptoms that can be relieved by correction of Atlas Subluxation include:

  • Chronic back and neck pain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Hypertension
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Post Concussion Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • TMJD
  • Chronic pain
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
