Over 30% of the sensory information needed to balance the body comes from the joints and muscles of the head and neck. The head is designed to be straight and the eyes to look level with the horizon. The center for equilibrium (balance) is located within the ears. Any misalignment in the neck drastically affects the body’s balance and equilibrium through neurological input and output. The brain will use the muscles to shift the entire spine in an effort to balance the head, eyes and ears to allow upright movement.
The ATLAS (C1) is the first cervical vertebrae of the spine.
ORTHOGONAL(or-thog’-ah-nal) means at right angles, or square. The head should sit level on the atlas and the atlas should sit squarely on the cervical spine (neck) The delicate upper neck, where the skull and atlas are located, is the most moveable and least stable area of the entire spine. An Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor has received advanced training to identify and correct atlas misalignment with a precise, gentle adjustment with no popping or cracking of the neck.
