Our brain stem is responsible for so much function in our body! First, it’s our body’s Control Center, it’s the key point in the relay system between messages going from the brain to all of the parts in your body, and every single part of your body back to the brain. Next, it’s responsible for the balancing systems in the body that are vital to our function. Things like heart rate, blood pressure, cycles of wake and sleep, even vision and hearing a regulated by the brain stem. Not only that, we’ve found that pressure just the weight of a quarter, can limit those messages up to 60%! Now the misalignment that we discussed of the atlas (The Protector), and this resulting pressure on the brainstem, that is what we call a subluxation in upper cervical care.
