Sleep is the foundation for your body to function correctly throughout the day. Just by sleeping the required number of hours each night can greatly improve your chances to live a long and healthy life. Not being able to sleep, or bad sleeping habits, can lead to downturns in your mood, weight gain, heart problems. Plus, no one wants to experience that hazy tired feeling constantly. What can you do to help your body get to sleep, and stay asleep through the night?
Chiropractic care is designed to align both your nervous and skeletal system. When your body becomes misaligned the signals from your brain to your spine become somewhat blocked. This will create stress in your body and can keep you up at night preventing that much needed rest. Adjustments eliminate the blocked connection between your spine and brain.
Regular adjustments can solve several sleep related issues like back pain, breathing problems, restless leg syndrome, and many others. Several studies have shown that regular chiropractic adjustments have improved their sleep. Even in people suffering from insomnia can benefit from chiropractic care.
In addition, your chiropractor can recommend better sleeping positions. It is common that the way you are positioned while sleeping is causing your spine to be misaligned. Sometimes just a simple adjustment to your pillow can do the trick.
