BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Since the founding of the chiropractic profession, very few efforts have been made to thoroughly explain the mechanism(s) by which joint complex dysfunction generates symptoms.

This study describes the anatomical variations of these facets and the clinical implications associated with asymmetrical structure. DESIGN: The superior articular facets of thirty human first cervical vertebrae were chosen for this study because the atlas constitutes the middle of the upper cervical complex and the atlanto-occipital joint contributes greatly to head movements...
