Tingling and Numbness in Marietta

finger painThe upper cervical spine, which includes the first two vertebrae (the atlas and axis), is closely connected to the nerves that travel down your arms. A misalignment in this area can exert undue pressure on these nerves or impair their proper functioning. This would be akin to your nerves, which are nothing but pathways transmitting messages between your brain and arms, facing a roadblock.

Any miscue in the alignment of the atlas and axis can cause a disruption in these messaging pathways, leading to abnormal sensations like tingling and numbness in the arms.

Taking a Gentle Approach

In certain instances, managing the upper cervical spine through a precise yet gentle adjustment can alleviate the pressure on the nerves and restore their normal functioning. Our unique care method focuses on this gentle adjustment without twisting, cracking, or popping. Correcting the atlas also has the added benefit of helping the lower cervical spine to self-correct, thereby relieving any additional pressure on the discs.
