What is causing your neck pain? Did you know that the signs of an atlas subluxation are: cranial deviation to one side, feeling of head wrapped in wool and tightness around the cranium, air/nose/throat problems, headaches, TMJ issues, sacrum issues, migraines and headaches, hormonal issues, respiratory issues...pretty much anything!
Did you know that with trauma there is a direct relationship with dysfunction at the level of the atlas, but there are many other areas of the body that have a direct or indirect relationship to the atlas: 1. The dura mater of the cranium and spine 2. Dura mater at FM and its relationship to Co-C2, as well as S2 of the sacrum 3. The gravity line pivot points C5, T4 and L3 4. The junction points of the spine C0-C1, C7-T1, T12-L1, L5-S1 5. Its relationship to the occiput (C0) condyles, the occiput drives the temporals which drives the mandible...and the occiputs relationship to the sphenoid 6. It converts vertical forces to horizontal forces and is an area of adaptation 7. Is driven by the upper thoracic spine 8. Has a direct relationship with the superior cervical ganglion which has an effect on CN 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, the carotid artery, lacrimal, submandibular and sublingual glands AND MUCH MORE! Don't always treat what the body is presenting with, be a detective:) =====================================================
