Here Is A Very Simple Test
To know if you’re dealing with a neck problem in your upper neck. When looking in a mirror, check to see if your head is tilted slightly in one direction or the other. What is happening here is if the atlas bone is shifted in one direction, this will cause the head to tilt in the opposite direction. When this happens, it prevents movement here putting an increased strain on the lower neck causing neck pain.
