Symptoms

Are your days lived in constant pain, or do you experience frequent headaches or debilitating migraines? These symptoms can be the most obvious signs of Atlas Misalignment. Other chronic conditions associated with Atlas Misalignment can include vertigo, fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, chronic fatigue, and other neurological or musculoskeletal disorders.

Atlas Misalignment is often the result of a traumatic incident such as a car accident, falls, or head-related injuries, But other more subtle traumas such as poor posture, bad sleeping habits, or improper lifting and carrying can also cause the Atlas vertebrae to be misaligned and cause problems.

You Might Be Suffering From Atlas Misalignment

The Atlas vertebrae is the top cervical bone in the neck and supports the head. A traumatic injury to the head or neck area can cause the Atlas vertebrae to become misaligned, which in turn affects the alignment of the spine. Since the spine protects the spinal cord that attaches the brain to the body’s central nervous system, any disruptions or abnormalities to the spine can have adverse effects on many areas of the body.

Even a mild injury to the head can cause the Atlas vertebrae to jarred loose from its orthogonal or neutral position beneath the head, causing the head to tilt in one direction or another. When the head is not perfectly positioned at the top of the spine, the rest of the spine shifts to support the head’s weight. This movement of the Atlas vertebrae and the repositioning of the spine is what is known as Atlas Misalignment.

We Can Help! Atlas Realignment

CT Spine is an Atlas Orthogonal Speciality Center that uses percussion waves to gently move the Atlas vertebrae back into the orthogonal or neutral position. This is accomplished without the traditional forceful manipulation of conventional chiropractic treatments.

Our 4-step treatment process helps our patients find relief from persistent pain or chronic conditions. That includes the use of X-rays to determine how far your Atlas vertebrae is out of alignment, and another set of X-rays after each visit to see how close The Atlas vertebrae is to returning to its normal or neutral position.

Symptoms

Frequent headaches and debilitating migraines are suffered by patients worldwide. Other disorders such as vertigo, Bell’s Palsy, and trigeminal neuralgia are less common but can be just as troublesome for patients afflicted with the conditions. A recent study also draws a parallel between the improper flow of cerebrospinal fluid in infants and a future diagnosis of acute spectrum disorders.

You Might Be Suffering From Atlas Misalignment

More and more research shows a direct correlation between the flow of cerebrospinal fluid into and out of the brain and the overall health of the body. When flowing unrestricted through the brain, cerebrospinal fluid flushes out the junk that accumulates in the brain. When the Atlas vertebrae isn’t aligned properly and compresses the blood vessels in the head and neck, the brain isn’t flushed of the waste, leading to future health issues.

We Can Help! Atlas Realignment

The proper alignment of the Atlas vertebrae supports the head and creates a straight line from the base of the skull to the spine. Even a slight imperfection can cause patients pain, discomfort and lifelong health concerns. Our team is committed to your long-term health, starting with the proper alignment of your Atlas vertebrae.

Symptoms

When the brain is unable to send a signal to the nerves to make the muscles react, a number of disorders can occur. The severity of these conditions can vary from mild to moderate to life threatening. Symptoms can include weakness, cramps, pain, and atrophy in the muscles. Other symptoms could include difficulty breathing and difficulty swallowing.

You Might Be Suffering From Atlas Misalignment

If the Atlas vertebrae is misaligned, it can create stress on the spine and the spinal cord. If the spinal cord is stressed, it can affect the nerves that send signals to the muscles in the arms and legs. If nerve irritation isn’t treated, muscle weakness will develop in the extremities.

We Can Help! Atlas Realignment

Any abnormal curvature of the spine can affect how the brain communicates with the rest of the body. Our treatments will reposition the head over the center of the body so communication between the brain and the nerves in the spinal cord are restored.

Symptoms

Millions of Americans suffer daily from chronic pain in their neck and lower back. It’s a common condition when the Atlas vertebrae and the spine are misaligned. Pain in the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of the leg is another common symptom along with herniated discs and numbness or tingling in the arms and legs.

You Might Be Suffering From Atlas Misalignment

Restoring proper nerve function by correcting an Atlas misalignment can allow the body to heal itself from chronic pain in many areas of the body.

We Can Help! Atlas Realignment

When the head, spine, and hips are misaligned, it places a great deal of stress on the muscles in the neck and back to compensate for the improper alignment. When our Atlas Realignment treatment returns the Atlas vertebrae to its proper or neutral position, tension and pain in the muscles is often reduced.

Symptoms

Neurodegenerative disorders affect the central nervous system and can affect the way people move, feel and talk. The most obvious symptoms are shaking of the hands, fingers, and limbs. People can also become unsteady and find it difficult to walk or keep their balance. Slurred speech is another telltale sign.

You Might Be Suffering From Atlas Misalignment

Research shows that misalignment of the Atlas vertebrae restricts the flow of cerebrospinal fluid into and out of the brain, When cerebrospinal fluid is inadequate, people are more prone to diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, blindness, and more.

We Can Help! Atlas Realignment

Realignment of the Atlas vertebrae normalizes the flow of cerebrospinal fluid into the brain, and in many cases, patients can show immediate improvement without the need for medication or surgery.
