Orcas Island Chiropractor Dr. Jared Kohler corrects misalignments of the Atlas vertebrae, which can not only irritate delicate nerve tissue, but in severe cases traction the vertebral arteries causing an obstruction of blood flow to the brain. This deprives the brain of vital blood, oxygen, and nutrients and is a cause of headaches, migraines, and dizziness. Sleeping on your stomach with your head rotated is a common cause of rotational misalignment of the atlas and a significant stressor to the delicate nerves and blood vessels that connect the brain to the body.  So its best to avoid sleeping on your stomach. If you’re having headaches, migraines and/or dizziness we can help with an atlas alignment evaluation and provide an expert adjustment if needed.
