In this video, I want to talk about a interesting situation that’s quite common with a lot of people. It involves the atlas. The atlas is the first cervical vertebra. 

The entire skull sits on this one cervical vertebra. Over 90% of all your motion in your neck occurs from this vertebra. If you can’t move your neck too well to the right or left, this vertebra is probably involved. 

The brain stem actually extends through this first vertebra and the second vertebra. If that vertebra is misaligned, you could have all sorts of issues related to the brain stem. 

Some of these issues include:
• Headaches or migraines 
• Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
• Jaw pain 
• Neck or back pain 
• Lack of motion in the neck or shoulders 
• Dizziness
• Nausea 
• Breathing problems 

If you have a problem with your neck or anything related to that first cervical vertebra, having the right adjustment done by a very good chiropractor can be extremely therapeutic. 

But, if someone has a chronic problem with this vertebra and has to keep getting adjusted repeatedly, there is something else going on. 

It involves the vagus nerve, which comes out of the brain stem. If the first cervical vertebra is misaligned, this could affect the vagus nerve, which goes into the digestive system. But, the vagus nerve is bidirectional. Nerves go from the gut back up into the brain. Even a problem with the gut can cause the first cervical vertebra to get tight and misaligned.

The vagus nerve is a part of the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and digestion. I have found that changing your diet is key when it comes to the chronic misalignment of the atlas. When your gut is working, your neck is nice and loose. Learn more about the diet you should be on from my other videos.
