The first cervical vertebra was called the “Atlantean” by medieval anatomists due to its key role in the balance of the entire musculoskeletal system. Atlant (lat. atlas) has articular surfaces for a “lock” connection withthe occipital bone and the second cervical vertebra. This is a single complex providing head turns in different directions. Rotational subluxation is a slight displacement of the articularsurfaces of the occipital bone and the first cervical vertebra relative to each other.
Subluxation is accompanied by spasm on one side of the body of the deep muscles of the neck (small and large posterior rectus muscles, superior and inferior oblique muscles of the head), which keeps the atlas in an unphysiological position and can disrupt blood flow in the basilar artery. The neurovascular bundle passes through the holes in the transverse processes of the cervical vertebrae.
