Did you know that the Chiropractors at Cadence do very unique chiropractic adjustments? It's true!
One of these unique adjustments is to the CO-C1 spinal segment in the cervical spine; CO being the base of the skull and C1 the very first vertebrae. This joint is not commonly treated. Over the 10+ years in practice both Dr. Ryan and Dr. Angela have noticed the great benefits of adjusting or mobilizing this area in those that require it.
Causes of CO-C1 issues are quite various and include posture, history of a motor vehicle collision or whiplash, travel, excessive fatigue and even stress.
Symptoms that may indicate the need to treat CO-C1 segment include:
- Neck pain
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Poor sleep
- Excessive fatigue
- Brain fog
- Slowed cognition
- Muscles aches and pains
- Digestive symptoms
Interesting CO-C1 facts:
- Restrictions in the CO-C1 segment is the most common cause of headaches Dr. Ryan & Dr. Angela treat.
- A CO-C1 condition presents very similar to adrenal fatigue and can be misdiagnosed as adrenal fatigue.
- Almost all CO-C1 restrictions can be corrected quite quickly.
- The CO-C1 spinal segment impairs the digestive tract.
A Chiropractor well versed in this type of adjustment/mobilization will know if a patient will benefit from treatment at this segment. If you have questions please contact us at 403.521.2278.
