While there are numerous causes for insomnia, it is the inflammation of the upper portions of the spine that we are concerned with at Pinnacle. Even the slightest dislocation or misalignment of the upper cervical vertebrae can lead to this kind of inflammation, which causes ongoing physical discomfort, even when lying down.
In addition to the noticeable discomfort, prolonged inflammation often disrupts the body’s natural hormone responses. One of those hormone responses is the release of melatonin, which aids in sleep. So any disruption here will result in symptoms like sleeplessness and restlessness.
At Pinnacle, we address that localized inflammation with thorough diagnostic imaging and a plan of care that includes upper cervical adjustments on a routine basis.
