Any history of an injury to the head and neck area

A car accident or a sports injury can be one of the many things that cause the atlas (c-1) spine to misalign and lead to a series of other problems.

Experiencing one-sided weakness and neurological issues

Head and neck misalignment stresses the nervous system, causing muscular imbalance. One side of the posture muscle that runs along the spine pulls harder than the other half, leading to body imbalance. This translates into chronic pain in other parts of the body.

Persistent, regular pain that has not been resolved over 6 months

When the atlas is misaligned in the upper neck region, it can create body imbalance from head to toe. The head moves off the center, twisting the entire spinal structure including the pelvis. A NUCCA chiropractor may be able to help relieve these symptoms listed as following:

  • 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
