Do you experience frequent headaches or migraines? This unseen and often misunderstood condition can be debilitating and often cause relationship and job issues for sufferers.
What can cause headaches and migraines?
Spinal misalignment can contribute to migraines and headaches. The Atlas (also known as the C1) vertebra is the top bone of the spine, and this little two-ounce bone is the most moveable vertebrae that allows the head to move all around. It is like the top link in a chain--whichever way the Atlas (C1) is tilted, the rest of the spine is affected. If the Atlas has been misaligned from birth, trauma, falls or injuries, the entire spine can be misaligned.
The nervous system that controls and coordinates all other systems in the body is housed in the skull and the spine. Vertebrates that are out of alignment -- the neck area is the most delicate – can stress the nervous system and cause the body's immune system to be compromised and health complaints to begin developing such as headaches, migraines, earaches, sinus issues, digestive problems, as well as neck and back pain. Studies have shown Atlas Orthogonal, an upper cervical chiropractic specialty to be especially effective treatment for multiple health issues without the potential negative side effects of drugs or surgery.
