How Atlas Realignment can help conquer sciatica
When the Atlas vertebrae is realigned to the orthogonal or neutral position, pressure on the spinal cord is relieved, which restores proper nerve function. The realignment would also ease the compression or pinching of the sciatica nerve and ease pain. An Atlas Realignment procedure is also a great way to prevent future treatment for sciatica pain in Stamford, CT.
