Accidents and Injuries — Old injuries can weaken the structures around the brain and nervous system, allowing them to become misaligned. A misalignment at the base of the head (upper cervical spine) have been shown to cause changes in the way the brain and nervous system control the body.
Reduced Function — Nerve flow and circulation between the brain-stem and the body becomes altered. This causes an increase in muscle tone along one side of the body, stressing the shoulder, spine, pelvis and hips. It also begins to affect the autonomic control of the internal organs of the body.
Increasing Pain and Degeneration — Over time, pain develops throughout the body and joints begin to age prematurely leading to arthritis and degeneration. Disrupted autonomic control can develop into chronic asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, digestive problems, acid re-flux, fatigue and many other symptoms. The upper cervical chiropractic treatment technique known as Advanced Atlas Orthogonal is an effective way to counteract these and other common nervous system issues.
