Here Is What Happens

Prior to a spinal injury or trauma, the 12-lb. head is evenly centered over the neck. After an injury or stress, the head shifts away from centre of balance.

To compensate, the neck shifts from its intended position putting undue stress on muscles, ligaments and the central nervous system. To compensate for this change and to keep the body in balance, the entire spinal column begins to shift. An injury to the head and neck may cause a wide variety of problems to occur throughout the entire body. Because this structural stress adversely influences the nervous system that is responsible for controlling and coordinating the entire body systems, symptoms may be experienced in a variety of locations.

A specific correction to the upper cervical region can restore balance to the entire spine and pelvis. This can provide extensive healing and recovery through improved spinal and neurological balance.
