Brain fog is not a medical condition but a symptom that can cause memory problems, inability to focus, lack of mental clarity, and poor concentration. Brain fog is also described as “mental fatigue.” Depending on the severity of brain fog, there is a chance it can get in the way of school, work, and social life. Many patients report feeling tired, hazy, and forgetful. They have a hard time focusing and an inability to concentrate.
It’s also common to experience head pressure or headaches. NUCCA chiropractic treatment can successfully treat brain fog because the brain depends on proper blood supply and spinal fluid circulation to function optimally. If there is a misalignment in your upper cervical spine, the vertebral artery may be obstructed and impede blood flow to the brain. Misalignment in the upper cervical spine may also negatively alter and disrupt the proper flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), leading to brain fog and/or head pressure. In short, your brain may not get the proper blood flow and oxygen required to function correctly.
