The human body is a complex living organism. The nervous system is happy when nerve communication is clean and clear between the brain and the body. Sometimes, stress and injuries in the past may have caused structural changes in the spine that have adapted negatively. The upper neck is the most complex region of the body that requires very precise analysis and correction in order to restore health and nerve functions.
When the upper neck becomes misaligned, chiropractors call it an “Atlas Subluxation.” It’s a specific terminology for the first cervical spine bone that becomes misaligned and causes neurological imbalance between the brain and the body. When the head and neck alignment is straighter, body posture becomes more balanced effectively immediately by a relief of atlas subluxation.
