The Upper Cervical Spine

The Upper Cervical Spine consists of two bones, the Atlas, (C1) and the Axis, (C2) at the top of the neck. This vital area provides the pass-through for much of the nervous system. It's also the most movable area of your spine. Because of this, subluxations in this crucial portion of the spine are very common.
Since there is such close proximity to the brain, subluxations here can result in an alteration to a large variety of body functions. Much of the body's nervous system messages flow here - or not. This is why corrections in alignment in this area usually show dramatic improvements in health throughout the body.
