Atlas is a very small bone
that sits right under your skull
and is a first bone in your neck
which is so so important.
Because it may contribute to many niggles we all suffer from and make us feel uncomfortable or even make us hurt. The good news is that it is really easy to get it sorted.
The atlas is the first cervical vertebra, surrounded by important life-supporting channels, responsible for all our organs. Almost all nerve signals go through the atlas area. This is also where the spinal cord begins and Medulla oblongata (the first brain) is located.

The first brain
The vagus nerves

Vascular compression might reduce blood flow to the brain, and thus compromise our bodies' digestion, absorption, elimination and sensory functions.

If there is pressure on neural pathways, it can decrease signals between the spinal cord and our bodies. This, in turn, may affect our motor, sensory and autonomic functions. As we age, our spine continues to change, further limiting signals that lead to various organs. Our system then cannot function effectively and becomes more vulnerable. Our joints begin to deteriorate, and we experience more health problems.
MOST COMMON ATLAS MISALIGNMENTS
Different pressures of the uterus on the foetus may cause the opposite rotation of the head and the body.
The hypothesis is that the atlas might start forming in the wrong position already in uterus, and can get more misaligned during birth and in later life from falls and blows to the body or head.
THE AVERAGE APPEARANCE OF THE FEMALE AND MALE BODY AND SPINE AT THE AGE OF FORTY
People suffer from two types of scoliosis: in the thoracic spine to the right side and in the lower part to the left. In over ninety percent of children and adults the first vertebra could be misaligned backwards, which might cause more serious lordosis and kyphosis which is followed by greater health problems.
In most people, the atlas may be also rotated, which might cause the spine to become twisted as well.
Difference between spinal shapes of men and women occurs due to the weight of the breasts which change the statics of the female body. Lordosis, especially cervical, increases in women, which may cause headaches, vertigo, thyroid disorders and pain in the arms. Men might have kyphosis in the middle of the spine and it might decreases signals towards the most important organs. That is one of the reasons they have shorter lives.
After the atlas is realigned the tilt, rotation and left-right asymmetry slowly disappear.
