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.
