Can Chiropractic Care Help You Get More Sleep?

As the spouse of an insomniac, I know all too well how important getting a good night’s sleep really is for your health. When you don’t get enough sleep, you often go through the day sluggish, grumpy, and achy and sore.

Sleep is the time when your body is able to rejuvenate, so without this very important step, your body suffers greatly. Insomnia is often one of the hardest ailments to treat since the causes can vary so widely. In recent years, more and more people are turning to chiropractors to help them get more sleep, and the results are promising. If you need a little (or a lot!) more sleep, check out these basics of sleep and chiropractic care.

For Those With Pain

Some people are unable to sleep because they simply can’t get comfortable or relaxed. As we age, we tend to pick up a few aches and pains as a general and normal side effect. Luckily, chiropractic care may be able to help negate this type of pain. Sometimes these pains happen because the spine is out of alignment. When that happens, tension builds up and the entire body may feel the effects. Aligning the spine properly, which is where chiropractors can really help,means less pain, less inflammation, and an easier time falling and staying asleep.

For Those With Stress Problems

Other people are unable to sleep because their stress levels are just too high. Too much stress can really take a toll on your body. If you lie down at night, but you can’t shut your mind off, then give chiropractic care a try. Many people use chiropractic care to help them relax. Keeping pain away, easing tension, and promoting a clear mind can help reduce stress levels, which can then aid in getting more quality sleep on a consistent basis.

For Those With Unknown Problems

Some people are unable to sleep, but they really can’t pinpoint the underlying cause. For these people, chiropractic care can also help. When a chiropractor aligns the spine, the entire central nervous system functions better. This allows the entire body to function better, and that includes the sleep cycle. No matter what causes your sleeping troubles, a chiropractor may be able to get your body and spine in better health and your trouble sleeping may become a thing of the past.
