The answer to this question depends on whether you have a neck or head trauma history. Have you fallen off a motorbike on a road trip, slipped and hurt your neck at work, or suffered whiplash or concussions during a car collision? What about during childhood? Were you an active athlete who played ice hockey or basketball and had moments when you bumped your neck or head?
These are just some of the usual events that result in an atlas bone misalignment. The force from such incidents can affect the ligaments that hold the uppermost neck bones in a neutral alignment. Then, over time due to poor posture and other factors, the atlas and axis bones gradually shift out of place, tilting the head and causing the rest of your spine to twist at awkward angles. The rest of your body will follow suit, including the hips and legs – increasing your risks for sciatic nerve compression or sciatica pain.
It’s a good idea to seek an Upper Cervical Chiropractor for sciatica relief in Calgary Alberta, if your story is similar to the abovementioned situations. The sooner we can assess your atlas and axis bone alignment, the quicker we can determine if you are an excellent candidate for chiropractic adjustments.
Consequently, the longer you put off an appointment, the higher your risks for worse postural problems and increased bouts of sciatica pain.
