Looking to Improve Your Sleep? Try This Advice

By Virginia Laird

Have you ever found it difficult to sleep due to back pain? You are not alone. Millions across the nation either have trouble falling asleep due to back pain, or they wake up with back pain. Chiropractors suggest there is no reason to continue allowing such pain to interrupt your sleep. Rather, they have offered a few tips to help reduce and eliminate this issue, including:

  • Check your mattress
  • Have a bedtime routine
  • Get enough sleep
  • Consider routine chiropractic care

Check Your Mattress

There can be a plethora of explanations for having back pain while sleeping. However, research suggests that many who have this issue simply need a new mattress. Many beleieve that a mattress which sags in all the right spots is broken in. The reality is that a mattress with any sags is actually broken down. Research suggests that if your mattress is older than eight years, it can be time to purchase a new one. This is especially true if you are one who suffers with back pain.

Have a Bedtime Routine

Chiropractors advise that having a bedtime routine can help reduce tension in the spine, which can help reduce back pain. Another benefit to having a routine is that is helps the body to relax. Chiropractors teach that your routine should include light stretching before hitting the pillow. This stretching should not require the use of a yoga mat; instead, it should be just light enough to relax the muscles of the body which can help improve sleep.

Get Enough Sleep

Chiropractors suggest it is wise to get plenty of sleep as part of a pain prevention plan. Where there is a lack of sleep, the body is easy to tire, which can cause pain. Experts suggest the average adult should get a minimum of at least 6 hours of sleep each night. While this can prove to be difficult for those suffering from back pain, it is paramount that sleep is a priority.

Consider Routine Chiropractic Care

Routine chiropractic care can help prevent and manage back pain. When a joint on the spine is in a restricted position, it can cause back pain. Chiropractors use small adjustments to the spine to restore function to the spine. If you are ready to begin your routine chiropractic care, drop by The Joint Chiropractic in your community.
