Re: Atlas question

He has seen numerous doctors and had a multitude of tests ran. The first was heart checks, and he even has a LOOP recorder in his chest to record episodes, but nothing. He's had EKGs, EEGs, sleep and otherwise, tilt table, etc, etc, etc. He passes out, sometimes with no warning, he "loses" his legs, sensation, so he falls...often. So you're saying the atlas SHOULD sit parallel? If I'm looking at a left side view of his neck xray, the atlas is sitting like this_______. The chiropractor says it should sit like this \ . Not quite that steep, but you get the idea. This is in relation to the top of the spine, not necessarily the base of the skull. I've been unable to track down any pictures showing this same side view of a normal skull including those 1st 5 or 6 vertabrae. It would help if I could see that. Any ideas? Anyway, as you can see, we've reached the end of our tethers on this. It takes forever to get disability and he can't drive or hold a regular job. I appreciate your assistance.
