My atlas is virtually ALWAYS out to the right (slightly rotated, and tilted down). This causes excruciating headaches, that resolve within hours of an adjustment. The problem is that I pretty much need an adjustment/week or it returns.
I want to break this cycle, as I cannot afford an adjustment a week. What contributes to this type of pain?
I have had my desk/work station examined by both a physical therapist and an ergonomist. I use a headset for all phone use (home/car/work). I rearranged my living room to put the tv in an ergonomically correct position. I bought a new pillow (therapeutica). I'm out of ideas. I seem to get a huge lump in the muscles on the right side of the suboccipital muscles. My masseters are very tight - should I pursue that? I have knotty muscles in general, so it is hard to know where to start. I use moist heat, massage (self w/ tennis ball) as well as rolfing (which is too $$$$)...
How can I break the cycle? I'm miserable.
