An extensive clinical research has confirmed that the FIRST CERVICAL VERTEBRA (C1) IS MORE OR LESS IN A ROTATIONAL MALPOSITION IN ALMOST ALL HUMANS.
This wrong position of the atlas is from birth.
The malposition of the atlas is the cause of various physical, psychical and mental disorders, disharmony and pain.
The dislocation of the atlas can be worsened and causing an increase in pain, typically during accidents such a whiplash, falls, sports injuries or different manipulation of the neck and spine, pushing the atlas into an even worse position.
The malpositioning of the atlas leads locally to continuous mechanical pressure on the adjacent muscles, tendons and other soft tissues, cranial nerves and other nervous tracts, blood and lymphatic vessels altering thus their function causing irritation, inflammation and dysregulation, ie. symptoms and pain.
Depending on the degree of the rotational malposition the atlas can even cause reduction in the diameter of the foramen magnum, irritate the spinal cord and its wrappings and alter the spinal fluid flow
