The neck is a vital and complex region of your body.  In order for health to be optimized, your brain needs to communicate effectively with your entire body.  This is part of your cervical spinal system and also includes both nervous systems such as the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system. Major injury to the upper neck can result in serious injury, but less severe injures can result in serious negative long term effects as well if not treated. 

Like a pebble in your shoe that creates more irritation the longer it is present, misalignment in your neck irritate your nerves and blood vessels over time and can create significant problems with your body’s ability to self-heal. A misalignment combined with nerve irritation is referred to as an upper cervical subluxation.  Upper cervical chiropractors treat upper cervical conditions by reducing the brain stem irritation and improve brain to body communication by returning proper structural balance to the upper neck. As aforementioned the most gentle way of doing this is by using the Atlas Orthogonal Technique to. gently bring alignment back to the upper cervical system.
