What Triggers A Migraine?

Common Sleep Disorders Associated With Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, you may also experience sleep disorders.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Intermittent breathing stoppage while sleeping. Obstructive Sleep Apnea causes the throat muscles to relax and block the airway, resulting in snoring.

Insomnia: Lack of restful sleep that may lead to fatigue, irritability, and anxiety. Insomnia generally affects individuals who have trouble falling or staying asleep, and those who experience insomnia usually get less than 6 hours of restful sleep per night.

Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): An uncontrollable urge to move the legs or unpleasant sensation in the legs. RLS symptoms often increase in severity overnight and can make it difficult for a person to enjoy restful sleep.

There is a direct correlation between sleep and stress, too. Insufficient sleep typically affects a person’s mood, memory, and judgment, along with his or her stress levels. Additionally, restless nights sometimes cause people to feel stressed about getting sufficient sleep – something that may lead to an ongoing cycle of poor sleep.

How Does A Specific Atlas Adjustment Affect A Migraine?

Relief from migraines in Colorado Springs CO may be just a non-traditional adjustment away. Blood vessels carry blood to and from the brain. Before reaching the brain these blood vessels have to pass through and around the atlas vertebra which is also known as your body’s Foundation. Misalignments of your Foundation can obstruct the proper function of vital blood vessels and nerves. This disruption in blood and nerve flow can lead to headaches, migraines, and several other severe conditions.
