Atlas displacement is more common than any other type of vertebrae complication. It can lead to headaches, neck pain, dizziness, back pain, and even colds and flu. It’s safe to say that Atlas displacement complex affects a whole lot of people and the reason for this is understandable.
More and more people now live a sedentary lifestyle where they have to work from a spot to make a living. Range of motion is limited therefore posture becomes affected over time. Millions of workers in today’s world now work on computers. While sitting for long and staring into a computer, the neck is pushed forward and over-extended. Over time, the neck muscles become strained and the atlas joint actually experiences a shift.
This shift in the position of the atlas causes a whole lot of problems and leads to the atlas displacement complex. Apart from natural deformities, people who work long hours on computers experience neck pain in different forms. In this case, the atlas is constantly pulled into an unnatural position and subsequently it loses its symmetrical positioning.
This incident is the most common secondary condition we have found at Precision Chiropractic, Austin, TX. Not surprising when you consider the fact that they atlas carries the weight of the head and is connected to the rest of vertebra. A misalignment can cause stress on the rest of the vertebral bones and connected joints.
A study was carried out on 550 participants who used computers at the workplace – all but 4 people had painful symptoms on their neck regions. A common issue they had was neck pain and unending headaches.
Further studies were carried out on 300 plus participants who had headaches, it was found out that their headaches were solved easily with an atlas adjustment therapy.
In fact, we advise that people who work long hours in a particular position should take short breaks to relieve their body a bit before returning to their tasks.
