Here are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of having back pain become chronic.
When the atlas is misaligned, the rest of the spine including the surrounding soft tissue must compensate to keep the head as straight as possible. Thus, one shoulder may become higher than the other, one hip may drop shortening one leg, and pain may occur at multiple places throughout the back where the greatest compensations take place.
Correcting the atlas misalignment can help the body to heal naturally. Upper cervical chiropractic involves an extremely gentle, low force correction. There is no popping or cracking as in general chiropractic. To learn more, seek out a consultation with an upper cervical chiropractor near you. You may find that keeping your atlas in proper alignment means you can be in the minority and be free from back pain.
