Sleep is controlled and coordinated in the brain and the brain stem. This region of the brain stem, known as the pons, is critical for initiating REM sleep (the dream cycle).
The brain stem–which can be compared to a communications cable that has thousands of individual wires, or nerve fibers, that send signals between the brain and the body– controls nearly all vital, bodily functions. Misalignments in the upper cervical spine (neck) can affect the function of the brain stem, which can be a critical factor in many health problems, including sleep disorders. These misalignment’s can be caused by bumps, falls, car accidents, emotional stress or even birth trauma. Health problems may appear immediately after the injury or many years later.
Upper Cervical Care is a unique alternative health care solution. The relief care focuses on the source of your condition and not the symptom itself. These relief care allow the body to heal itself naturally without the use of potentially harmful drugs or surgery. When a gentle and non-invasive Upper Cervical correction is made and the upper cervical spine is properly repositioned, brain-to-body communication is restored and the body begins to heal itself.
