What is Upper Cervical?

Upper Cervical Treatments & Conditions Offered At Apex Spine Cente

One small, tiny bone keeps everyone’s head literally upon their shoulders. This minute bone, called the Atlas, housed in the narrowest of openings, is one of the most important bones in the body as it connects the brain stem to our spinal column, says Upper Cervical Awareness. That means this minuscule bone not only enables us to turn our neck, but it is responsible for our balance and signals moving from the brain through the rest of every single one of our nerves in our body. The Atlas is what enables us to move and feel. But what happens when the Atlas gets knocked out of alignment? Chiropractors are now able to precisely realign the Atlas painlessly using Upper Cervical Chiropractic Techniques, and Apex Spine Center, serving the Dalton, Chattanooga, Cleveland, Chatsworth, Calhoun, Rome, and Cartersville areas, specializes in upper cervical treatments & conditions.

What Causes Upper Cervical Conditions?

Misalignment of the first bone in your body, the Atlas vertebrae, or C1, can occur during any stage of life. Children commonly experience this from falling or playing sports; adults most commonly experience it from injuries like slips and falls, and from car accidents, especially when rear-ended. Infants can even have a misaligned Atlas from the pressure, force, and trauma through the birth canal during childbirth says Upper Cervical Awareness.

Symptoms of UCC

The most noticeable symptom of the Atlas being misaligned or injured is that someone walks off-balance. They may have one leg shorter than the other or even one shoulder or hip lower than its counterpart. This is because the damage to the Atlas has caused the entire body to be misaligned also, according to Upper Cervical Awareness. There are also painful symptoms like migraines, clenching or grinding teeth, seizures, neck and back pain, scoliosis, chronic pain, depression, and hormonal imbalances just to name a few, that can’t necessarily be fixed through normal methods or doctors cannot find the cause of, says the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.

Upper Cervical Treatments

Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to fix your Atlas. At Apex Spine Center located in Dalton, GA, our chiropractor is specially trained in painless C1 realignment procedures. First, chiropractic care starts with very precise x-rays to pinpoint exactly where the misalignment is. Then realignment can begin, but this time it comes without any cracking, popping, jostling or discomfort. The patient typically lies on their side while the doctor lightly touches the back of your neck, almost feeling like a massage, until the C1 is back in place, UCCA says. “Upper cervical doctors literally use the amount of force it takes to move 2 quarters across a flat surface,” the UCCA explains.
