The head weighs 10-12 pounds and rests on the first cervical vertebrae called the atlas. The bottom of the skull, the atlas(c-1), and axis(c-2) house the most vital center of the body, the brainstem. The brainstem is responsible for all of the body's internal function that we are not conscious of, heart function, respiratory function, blood pressure control, thermoregulation, and most important to fibromyalgia sufferers muscle tone regulation.
Because fibromyalgia patients suffer from chronic pain coming from chronically tight muscles the upper cervical spine should be checked for priory injury. A neck injury can result in soft tissue damage causing spinal misalignment and loss of motion in the upper cervical spine.
This causes a cascade of problems through the body. I’m out Los Angeles upper cervical health care offices we have found that fibromyalgia suffered all have upper cervical spine misalignment that is a big contributing factor in fibromyalgia’s onset.
When the atlas is misaligned due to trauma, the neurological insult at the brain stem level can lead to the symptoms of fibromyalgia. The reason why modern medicine has been unable to effectively treat and cure this condition is that they are focusing on the symptoms rather than the cause of the symptoms – the spine and the nervous system itself.

What Does a Blair Chiropractor Do?
Blair Upper Cervical doctors are specially trained to find spinal misalignments in the upper cervical spine. This is determined by running the prospective patient through a battery of neurological tests that locate the spinal segments that have been injured and misaligned by a prior neck injury.
Once located, precision imaging in the form of digital x-ray or cone-beam computed tomography (Cbct) is used to precisely determine which joint has misaligned and the angulation of the offending joint. Each person’s anatomy is different and therefore imaging is used to uncover the blueprint to be used to correct each patient’s individual misalignment pattern.
Once this information is gleaned, a gentle, light correction is made without twisting, popping, or pulling. The patient is then monitored overtime to ensure that the correction is holding. If the testing indicates the need for another correction, then it is performed.
However, the goal of Blair Upper Cervical Care is for the patient to stay in “adjustment”. It isn’t the correction that produces healing. It is the removal of nerve irritation and the adjustment “holding” in its normal position that allows the body to function better and proceed through a healing process.
