Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical care is a gentle and specific method for adjusting the most important and complex joint region in the body -- the area where the head connects to the neck.
This area, also known as the Cranio-cervical junction, refers collectively to the base of the skull, the atlas, (C1, the top bone of the spine), the axis (C2, the second bone of the spine), and the supporting muscles and ligaments. This area is the most movable and complex portion of the spine. The brain stem, spinal cord, and vertebral arteries all pass through the cervical spine to the brain. This makes the Atlas both the neurological switch and the primary pathway for the exchange of blood and cerebral spinal fluids between the brain and the rest of the body.
Mis-alignments of the cervical neck can be caused from the birth process, auto accidents with speeds as low as 5 MPH, sports impacts, falls, and head traumas. Looking down at a cell phone or laptop for extended periods of time can also cause mis-alignment of the spine.
For more than 40 years, millions of people have benefited from Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical spinal adjustments. Atlas Orthogonal care has shown to be a very effect treatment for migraines, headaches, neck and back pain and also anxiety, digestive issues, sleep issues, poor posture, and asthma.
