Neck Pain Symptoms and Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
Upper cervical chiropractic care is a specific and gentle form of chiropractic that focuses on the atlas (C1) vertebra. This form of chiropractic is very effective when it comes to neck pain because it has a global effect on the spine below to addresses symptoms that occur throughout the spine as a whole. For example, an atlas misalignment is often the underlying factor in headaches, or vertigo. When the atlas is misaligned, the rest of the neck in virtually all cases will follow suit, and this can particularly affect the shoulders, arms, and fingers as that chain reaction reaches the lower neck vertebrae and continues on down the spine. Also of note is the fact that many chronic neck pain sufferers also suffer from lower back pain.
