Accidents and Injuries can Result in Spinal Imbalance
Accidents and injuries occur, resulting in a misalignment of the C1 vertebrae to the right or left and usually with some twisting. Muscles in and around your spine react in a way which further causes your body framework to be out of balance. In a neutral upright position, your body may have head tilt, a high hip, twisting between your shoulders and hips, an upper body lean to the right, left, forward or backward, and a physiological short leg present. This condition effects your bio mechanics and interferes with your nervous system, leading to a host of health problems. Analysis of x-rays and a gentle adjustment to correct the alignment of your head and neck to the proper position will bring back spinal balance and reduces stress on the nervous system allowing the body to heal.
