Atlas Health Brisbane
Think of your spinal cord as a computer cable that transmits information between your brain and the rest of your body. The atlas and axis protect the brainstem, which is the control centre for all communication in the brain and body.
These top two vertebrae also support the full weight of the head: approximately 4.0 Kg, which is the same weight as a bowling ball.
When the atlas and axis are aligned, the brain is able to communicate properly with the rest of your body. Your body is able to function and do what it is supposed to do. However, if the atlas and axis are not aligned, they cannot support the weight of the head and create body imbalance. This imbalance creates tremendous physical stress through every joint in your body.
An upper cervical misalignment may also disrupt the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. This problem may lead to a wide array of neurological or spinal related disorders, which people have reported to improve following upper cervical care.
