Cervical C2 Vertebrae (Axis) | Sinus Pain

The axis is the second cervical vertebra down from your cranium. The axis is a hinge that pivots with your C1 vertebrae aka “the atlas”. This rotation allows you to turn your head from left to right. If your axis is misaligned (subluxated) it can make turning your head very difficult; possibly causing pain.

A subluxation of C2 vertebrae can also affect your optic nerve(s), auditory nerve(s), sinuses, forehead and tongue.

Suffering from sinusitis or allergies?
Do you have pain around your eyes?
Experiencing earache’s, deafness, or fainting?
If so, misalignment of the your axis could be at fault.
