Migraines are a neurological condition that often presents with a moderate to severe headache, nausea, and sensory sensitivities. Besides medication, doctors often recommend keeping a journal to identify and avoid as many migraine triggers as possible. Migraine triggers are often unique to each person. However, stress is one extremely common trigger.

When the atlas (C1) is misaligned, it can affect blood flow to the brain, cerebrospinal fluid drainage, and brainstem function. These are all factors that can be tied to migraines. For many, this misalignment was caused by a head or neck trauma, but normal wear and tear can also take its toll on this extremely mobile vertebra.
