Chronic neck and back pain
With your Atlas out of position (much like a chain) the rest of your spine is torqued or out of position. Using our body in this misaligned position can put extra load on the vertebra and instead of functioning like a healthy joint, it is compressed and can cause disc issues, uneven leg lengths, and even ankylosing spondylitis.
Out of alignment
Misalignment in the neck can cause destabilization of the surrounding soft tissue. Misalignment of the spinal column puts pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves. The negative effects of the misalignment can be seen throughout the entire body. The lifetime of misalignment and asymmetry puts pressure on the spine, shoulders, hips, and knees and can lead to chronic neck pain, chronic back pain, sciatica, bulging disc, disc herniation, and much more.
With your head “not on straight”, the rest of the body compensates. For every one inch that your head is forward, it adds 10 pounds of gravitational weight to your 12-15 pound head.
The extra strain can cause other pain
The extra strain on your posterior neck muscles from your head falling forward can cause the sub occipital muscles and fascia to become stiff and chronically engaged which can cause chronic neck pain and eventually back pain as the body continues to be pulled forward from gravity. Pressure can build in the neck then in the back causing pain, tension, and discomfort.
Unnecessary “wear and tear”
When the head and neck is out of position, so is the rest of the body. It is like driving a car with an unbalanced frame which if you keep driving will cause damage and wear and tear. This imbalance can also cause the vertebra/spine, shoulders, hips, knees, muscles, ligaments, and tendons to be overloaded on one side causing this unbalanced wear and tear.
Over time this could lead to spinal disc degeneration, shoulder issues as well as a need for hip and knee replacements.
A new approach
AtlasPROfilax helps the atlas into it’s optimal position and resets the sub occipital muscles to reposition the weight of your head over the center of your neck to reduce structural and mechanical imbalance which can decrease neck pain, back pain, wear and tear on the vertebra joints and ligaments, nerve compression, and body imbalance issues. AtlasPROfilax can reduce chronic neck and back pain with a safe three minute treatment.
