If you have ever experienced a significant impact to your body such as car accidents, sports injuries, falls, or bump to the head, the force on the upper neck may not have been avoidable. Car accidents injury is also called the accelerating and decelerating of the cervical spine injury. Even if the damage to the vehicle is minimal, the body absorbs the forces from the impact.
This type of injury is often dismissed and neglected as a minor soft tissue injury. However, the atlas subluxation can lead to chronic health problems such as headache, dizziness, loss of balance, neck stiffness, tingling and numbness in the arm and legs, posture imbalance, and more.
