The atlas is the first bone in your spine. It receives the weight (8-14 pounds) of your head and transfers it evenly into your neck and shoulders. Good balance in the head and neck results in good pelvic balance. Good pelvic balance is essential for lower back comfort.

The head can move in many directions, much like a golf ball turning on a tee. When misalignment of the atlas (upper neck) occurs relative to the skull, the weight of the head no longer transfers evenly into the neck and shoulders. This may cause headaches, TMJ, facial pain and varying amounts of pain and stiffness in the neck and upper back.

Your Upper Cervical Chiropractic Specialists

More severe misalignments will result in shoulder and arm pain often accompanied with numbness and tingling into the hands and fingers. A shift of the head away from the midline of the body will cause a shift of your pelvis, which may in turn cause bulging of low back discs. Lower back pain and stiffness is caused by tilt, rotation, or both in the pelvis. Left uncorrected, symptoms of leg pain and sciatica can develop.

In addition to aches and pains of muscular origin caused by postural distortion, the Atlas Subluxation Complex and its Syndrome can produce neurological disorders. Equilibrium, respiration, heart and digestive function are all directly related to the position of your skull and atlas.

Low Level Laser Therapy

According to studies, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) causes tissues to heal up to 80% faster- muscle, skin and nerves. If a condition does not adequately respond to the NUCCA alignment, LLLT can assist healing at the cellular level. LLLT has been used worldwide for over 40 years. This high-tech tool produces light in the red portion of the spectrum, which has been shown to assist in the healing of soft tissues. read more»
