Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC), the misalignment of theAtlas/C-1, can cause symptoms ranging from headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, allergies, dizziness, ringing in the ears, depression, and high blood pressure to name a few.
The proper adjustment of C-1 can remove interference to normal nerve function and create an opportunity for the body to heal itself.
The diagnosis and treatment is rather simple – a chiropractor who specializes in the NUCCA System (National Upper Cervical Association) will do a visual exam as well as a series of neck x-rays to determine if treatment is required. The treatment itself is fast, painless and very gentle – at least that has been my experience and that of others I have spoken to. The number of treatments you will need depends on many factors, including the type of condition you have, how long you have been subluxated, your general health and how long the adjustment holds its restored position.
