Unfortunately since my accident, I’ve always felt ‘too fragile’ to dare let anyone manually manipulate my head neck junction but, I must admit, the very first account of symptoms that most matched mine, were written I think by a guy called Greg Buchanan who sang the praises of upper cervical ‘specific’ chiropractic, see his website at:-
Also, when trying to find out the biomechanics behind my injury, I was helped a great deal by a chiropractor who carried out a ‘motion study’ on my cervical vertebrae x-rays. He kept them overnight as it took some time and, by overlaying the x-rays with sheets of acetate and drawing around each bone and comparing the bones in each of the 3 x-ray positions (neutral, flexion and extension), he determined which bones where moving as they should and which bones were problematic. It was a very useful study which helped me to understand how my neck motion had been affected.
Taking the knowledge of this method, which he was kind enough to teach me, I personally took the study one step further and looked at the neck-head (atlanto-occipital) relationship and that’s what started me looking in more depth at my radiology, as it was obvious to me that something was not quite right with the head-neck relationship. I was eventually diagnosed with cranio-cervical instability.
So, all-in-all, I have an awful lot to thank the chiropractic fraternity for – because none of this had been forth-coming from the general medical fraternity.
