HELP for neck pain and headaches

The head of an adult weighs about 4 kg. Numerous muscles and ligaments make it possible to hold, bend, turn and tilt the head. At the same time they stabilize the cervical spine and ensure its high mobility.

Everyone knows about neck pain. They can occur chronically or quickly pass again in the form of a stiff neck. For neck pain are to A bad posture in the head and shoulder girdle area  is responsible, but also constant stress or psychological strain contribute to an increased tension of the musculature. Tension in the neck muscles is again the cause of tension headaches.

ATLAS helps to systematically loosen and relax the musculature from the occipital bone to the lower shoulder blade angle and in this way can relieve from annoying head or neck pain.

incorrect posture in the head and shoulder belt area

Our muscles, fasciae and ligaments stabilize our body and keep it in balance. In our everyday life, external factors often force us to adopt a long-term incorrect posture. These include, for example, incorrect seating, incorrectly positioned monitors and work surfaces, driving for long periods, but also staying in one position for long periods of time when using a smartphone or tablet. The above-mentioned structures react with tensions, adhesions, disturbed metabolism and the associated lack of tissue supply and harmful waste products.

A pain syndrome develops with e. g:

•  neck, shoulder and/or headache
•  Dizziness, visual disturbances or ear noises (tinnitus)
•  Vertebral blockages
•  Arthrosis as a late consequence

Application areas of the ATLAS

Frequently affected by the following

clinical pictures:

• BWS Syndrome
• Cervical Spine Syndrome
• Pain in the shoulder girdle
     and neck area
• Tension headaches
• Tinnitus
    (ringing in ears)
• Atlasblockierung
• so-called “stiff neck”

Home position:

The ATLAS lies on a
non-slip underlay.
You lie with the
Back of the head on the ATLAS
just above the
cervical spine.

application:

In this position,
transfer your body weight completely to the ATLAS
and remain lying down
for 10-20 seconds
. Now lift 
your head, turn it about.
1-2 cm to the right and
place it back on the
raises.
Again lie down 10-20 Seconds.
In this way In this
you now turn your
Head in 4-6 steps over
the ATLAS to the side,
until the external elevation
comes to rest directly behind
the ear. Repeat
Repeat the application
also on the left side.

Then you will come
back to the centre
of the ATLAS to lie down
(starting position). 
In 5-7 steps,
the ATLAS is now pushed
in the direction of the feet, until
it reaches
the upper
thoracic spine. The cervical spine
lies between
the elevations. Leave for
10-20 seconds
at each
treatment point.

If necessary,
support the head
with a pillow.

clinical pictures:

• BWS Syndrome
• Cervical Spine Syndrome
• Pain in the
    Shoulder Belt Area
• Tension headaches
• Tinnitus
    (ringing in ears)
• Shoulder Pain
• nightly falling asleep of the
    hands
• so-called “stiff neck”

Home position:

The ATLAS lies on a 
non-slip underlay.
You lie at the same level
as the uppermost thoracic vertebrae,
on the ATLAS
in such a way that the two elevations
are located to
the right of the spine.

application:

In this position,
transfer your body weight completely to the ATLAS
and remain lying down
for 10-20 seconds.
Then raise your
shoulders slightly,
move the ATLAS
about 1 cm to the right
and lie down
on the elevations again.
Again lie down 10-20 Seconds.
In this way In this
way you walk 
in 3-4 steps with the ATLAS
outwards towards
the shoulder joint. Repeat
Repeat the application
also on the left side.

Then go back to
the starting position,
but turn the ATLAS
90 degrees. Repeat
two elevations 
come to rest between
GCS and the inner
edge of
the shoulder blade.
Now walk
with the ATLAS in small steps
towards your feet
up to the level of
the lower shoulder blade angle.
Stay at every
Position for 10-20 seconds
.
