Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Atlanta

Dr. Jill Driver Wright practices Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Atlanta. Upper Cervical Chiropractic focuses on aligning the top most bone in the neck, the atlas. If your atlas is subluxated, or misaligned, it can have profound impacts on your health. The Atlas sits at the base of the skull and is very close to the brain stem. There are dozens of muscles that attach to the Atlas that can spasm causing misalignments and pain in other parts of the body. There are many neurological processes devoted to keeping our eyesight level with the horizon. If the atlas is out of place, your body will compensate for this misalignment by shifting the position of other bones in your spine to keep the eyes level. These compensatory patterns can cause pain and symptoms in other, seemingly unrelated, parts of the body. because of these reasons and many more, keeping your atlas aligned is crucial for your overall health.
