Is your head on straight?
Our 2-ounce C-1 vertebrae, or atlas bone, supports the entire human head which can weigh 9 to 17 pounds. The atlas is located directly under the head, connecting the head to the rest of the spine. Because of it’s proximity to the brain and brain stem, the atlas must be aligned perfectly under the skull to ensure there is no pressure at the base of the brain. The atlas supports the weight of the head in the neutral or orthogonal position.
Misalignment to the atlas can create problems at the base of the neck leading to symptoms associated with:
• fibromyalgia • sleep disturbances
• insomnia • carpal tunnel
• irritable bowel• headaches • neck pain
• low back pain
• numbness and tingling
• depression and anxiety
So what could this mean to you? Bumps, falls, stress, car accidents, sports injuries, even the birth process can create problems at the atlas, however , a misaligned atlas is not likely to show up in most medical tests.
