Craniocervical Disorder

With an Atlas Orthogonal Specialist

What is craniocervical junction disorder?

Abnormalities in the bones that connect the head and neck are the most common cause of craniocervical junction disorder. The abnormalities can result from an injury or trauma, or can be present from birth.


Symptoms of craniocervical junction disorder

The most common signs of craniocervical junction disorder are neck pain and pain in the back of the head. There can be other symptoms, including weakness in the arms and legs, a tingling or shooting sensation in the back of the limbs, and pain when moving the head from side-to-side. Patients can also have trouble with their eyes, including bouts of double vision or a lack of control of the eyes.
