Chiropractic Care for the Tired Parent

By Donna Stark

You're exhausted, and we all get it. Being a new parent tops the list of things that deprive us of our sleep. In fact, it is guaranteed to be one of the most exhausting jobs in your life with those interruptions during the night, the early morning screams for attention, and the long days at work. And not that you would ever want to change the circumstances. You just want to get some serious shut-eye ... if only for an extra hour or two a week, right? Well, there are some things you can do to find some extra time to rest and there is also some help waiting for you at The Joint Chiropractic.

Getting Some Extra Minutes of Sleep

New parents are often surprised by how exhausted they are once the new baby comes home, and at times, they may feel like they will never get the sleep they need. But while the first few months can be difficult for everyone involved, these tips can make it easier to get through those sleepless days and nights. Take a look.

  • Adjust your bedtime - Is your child an early riser? If the answer is yes, you may need to adjust your bedtime. Instead of going to bed at the time you are used to, try hitting the sack an hour or so earlier.
  • Disconnect - If you have a hard time falling asleep, disconnect from your electronic devices before bed and avoid using them when you are awake with your child in the middle of the night.
  • Take naps - Try to nap when your baby is asleep or ask a friend or family member for help. Having someone come over to take your child for an hour walk is a dream come true for exhausted parents and just enough time to catch a few winks.

Chiropractic Care for the Tired Parent

Chiropractic care can also help tired parents in several ways. In addition to alleviating the pain and discomfort they may be feeling, it can help to improve their quality of sleep too. By placing the spine in its proper alignment, removing any joint restrictions, and improving the function of the nervous system, the adjusted body is able to relax. And the more comfortable the body is, the easier it is to fall asleep.

Chiropractors can also offer valuable suggestions that promote quality sleep, so if you are confused on the following topics, don't forget to ask during your visit.

  • Sleep positions
  • Mattresses and pillows
  • Sleeping environments
  • Nutrition
