At the root of the problem

There are many reasons people get headaches from migraines, to tension headaches to cluster headaches. The atlas vertebra (C1) out of position can wreak havoc on every system in your body and can be a major or contributing factor to your headache or migraine.

Posture matters

Poor posture and head forward posture can cause neck strains and tension headaches. Tension headaches often originate in the chronically engaged muscles at the base of the neck and compensatory muscular tension at the base of the skull. Structural imbalance of the neck can be the underlying cause of your headache.

Decrease oxygenated blood flow to the brain from vertebral artery compression can cause headaches, migraines and other issues. It can also decrease proper central nervous system function and impulses and cause a temporary alteration to nerve cell function causing headaches lasting hours to days.

Out of position

The atlas out of position can cause cerebrospinal fluid to drain improperly. It can pool in the head and cause intracranial pressure which leads to migraine headaches and other neurological conditions. The atlas malrotation can put pressure on the brainstem which is a crucial part of the central nervous system. Decreased brainstem function can also cause migraines and headaches.

Another potential factor is chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) and outflow obstructions which can cause severe headaches, mental confusion, visual disturbances and more.

A new approach

AtlasPROfilax can improve proper oxygenated blood flow to the brain, it can help relieve intracranial pressure as well as pressure on the brainstem. AtlasPROfilax improves posture to take the pressure off the neck relaxing the sub occipital muscles and fascia. AtlasPROfilax can improve headaches and migraines with a safe three minute treatment.
