If the weight of the head remains centered over the neck, the spinal column will be balanced and straight. If you get into an accident and the weight of the head shifts off center, the body will try to compensate by moving into an imbalanced position. To ensure that the head remains in a central position above the neck, the pelvis and spine will lock and twist into a stressed position.
This imbalance can be clearly seen with one leg being shorter or longer than the other, one hip being lower or higher, twisting the body framework, abnormal movement, muscular imbalance, and progressive wear and tear over time. The body position can result in pressure, stress, and tension of the entire nervous system, and the brain stem. This is extremely important, as the body sends millions of chemical and electrical impulses from the brain to different cells of the body. If there is a distortion or restriction of those messages it will affect all bodily functions. Most of them are unconscious messages like circulation, digestion, and breathing.
If this isn’t corrected, the long-term effect will be a degeneration of the body part that doesn’t receive those messages. This can cause behavioral changes, mild to severe pain, lowered illness resistance, organ dysfunction, mobility loss in limbs, and disease.
