Primary Condition

Altas Displacement Complex

Your Atlas (the first bone in your neck) may have shifted laterally relative to your cervical spine - aka neck. This means your head may be leaning to the side and putting a great deal of stress on the bones, discs, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles in the spine.


A shift of the skull and atlas into the ABNORMAL position is equivalent to your car not in alignment. The car in ABNORMAL alignment can lead to uneven wear and tear of the tire tread. Wear and tear of the tires is relatable to the Secondary Conditions (symptoms) that follow ADC.


How Do You Get An Atlas Displacement Complex?


            There are many mechanisms that can cause an ADC, however the most common is some form of an injury, trauma, or repetitive action that tear loose connective tissues that hold the spine together. This creates weakness, allowing the spine to break down and lock into a stressed position. You can move and get around, but the stress is always there.
