Improve Your Shut-Eye With Chiropractic

Man snoring woman awakeMention chiropractic and you likely will think of a natural approach to relieving back and neck pain. Chiropractic does, indeed, do an excellent job of resolving pain. Did you know that it also can help with sleep issues?

While we spend about a third of our lives sleeping, many people have difficulties falling asleep or staying asleep. Whether your sleep partner snores, or you just can’t shut down racing thoughts, many things can cause sleep to suffer.

Health Consequences of Insufficient Sleep

Failing to get adequate sleep can result in the following issues:

  • Weight gain
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Mood disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease

The Medical Approach

The traditional medical approach to addressing sleep problems focuses on drugs. Most people start with over-the-counter medications. When those doesn’t work, people often seek prescriptions for sleeping pills from their doctor. These medications all carry serious side effects and rob you of normal REM sleep. The possible long-term result of using them is the development of psychological problems.

The Difference That Chiropractic Could Make

Drug-free and noninvasive chiropractic care improves the blood flow in the nervous system. Chiropractic also corrects any misalignments (subluxations) in the spine. Subluxations compress the nerves causing the lack of communication between the spine and the brain.
This communication deficiency can lead to a stress response, which puts the body out of balance. Sleeping soundly can then become challenging. This can be easily remedied with gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments.

Regular chiropractic care can solve several problems that may be the cause of sleepless nights. These issues include back pain, muscle tension and restless leg syndrome.
