A Chiropractor's Guide to Better Sleep

By Brandi Goodman 

Sleeping soundly each night should be on everyone's goal list. However, many people fail to get adequate rest due to the stresses of life, poor mattress quality, pain in their bodies, and more. A chiropractor's guide to better sleep can help you achieve a better night's rest from here on out. 

Visit the Chiropractor

If you've been experiencing poor sleep for some time, your first step should be a trip to the chiropractor. Joint restrictions or subluxations within your body could be causing discomfort that makes it difficult to drift off at night. Visit The Joint Chiropractic to see if you can get some relief and sleep better because of it.

Change Your Sleep Position

The position you sleep in can also affect your quality of sleep. Your chiropractor may be able to offer advice on the best sleep position for you based on the pain you're experiencing. Most do not recommend stomach sleeping for anyone since the spine does not stay aligned properly this way. Side sleeping tends to be one of the best options. A pillow between your knees may work best though to prevent discomfort in this area.

Get a Chiropractic Pillow

Many people purchase cheap pillows from a local store. These pillows tend to either be too bulky or too flat. Their level of firmness can also change quickly after using it for just a short while. If you struggle with neck pain and headaches in the middle of the night, then a new pillow may be in order. A chiropractic pillow with additional support of the neck may work best. 

Upgrade Your Mattress

Even if your mattress offers an extended warranty saying it should last for 10 years or more, chances are it won't keep you satisfied nearly as long. Mattresses get worn out, sunken in, and uncomfortable over time. Many need to be replaced anywhere between five and eight years. If you've tried other things to help you sleep and you're still experiencing problems, then upgrading your mattress may be the next step.

Getting enough rest each night is highly important if you want to maintain your overall health and wellness. Poor sleep habits can lead to stress and illness if you aren't careful. Follow this chiropractor's guide to better sleep and experience an improved night's rest.
