Misalignments in the spine are all EFFECTS of the misalignment in the upper cervical spine, which is the CAUSE. These effects, or compensations, form for a reason – the brain puts them there in order to balance the head and brain. The head becomes unbalanced due to a misalignment in the upper cervical spine. So, like a chain reaction, when the upper cervical spine is misaligned, other segments in the rest of the spine also misalign. This creates imbalance in the body. We honor the body’s innate wisdom to place compensations throughout the spine. If we can address the cause of these compensations by correcting an upper cervical misalignment, then your body will begin to find balance again, restoring your health.
