When we first went in, the Dr. had us stand on a some scales to see if our body was imbalanced. When the atlas is misaligned it can cause a imbalance in your body, a raised hip, a short leg and one side of your body weighing more then the other. This was true with Asia and myself. I don't remember the exact amounts on Asia but for myself, one side of my body weighed 10 pounds more then the other! My husband had a 27 pound difference. As of my appointment Monday I am "balanced":) I can tell you also that I can really tell, I feel balanced.
When working with Asia, on her first Visit the Dr. massaged one side of her head, the next visit was the opposite side and then on the 3rd visit she worked both sides a little. This was not to overload Asia.
Body imbalance can cause such conditions as Seizures, development problems, digestive problems, migraines, allergies, ear infections, acid reflux, ADD, fevers and more.

Being an Upper Cervical Chiropractor my main focus is what is that brain stem going through. What kind of pressure is being put on it, how is it functioning being surrounded by the first bone in the neck called Atlas or C1.
With all the traumas and injuries that we sustain in life, those injuries will break loose the connective tissue that holds us very strong and upright. When we receive those traumas the first area to break down is the Atlas area, just because it is unlike any other bone in the body, and it is protecting that brain stem.
All babies, and children have spines just like adults, and as we are all coming through the birth canal as well as being delivered, it is very traumatic and can disrupt the alignment of that first bone (Atlas).
Any pressure upon that brain stem will disrupt the communication from the brain to the body. It is like a computer central command center. Symptoms that might evolve due to this disruption is: Seizures, Torticollis, Ear Infections, Sinus Infections, Colic, Acid Reflux, Trouble Latching during Breastfeeding, constipation, Diarrhea and many others.
I use a gentle adjustment with no popping, twisting or pulling on the neck. Moms can be worry free when their child is getting their spine in alignment!
