Combine Chiropractic and Sleep to Ease Discomfort

By Brandi Goodman

Pain often arrives at the most inopportune times. With an ache in your body, it can be difficult to make it through your daily tasks. By combining both chiropractic care and adequate sleep, you should be able to ease your discomfort and have an easier time tackling your to-do list.

Chiropractic for Pain

Chiropractic offers significant relief for pain. Whether you're experiencing back pain, an aching shoulder, a nagging sensation in your knee, or even discomfort due to arthritis, an adjustment should help ease your symptoms. Always let your chiropractor know exactly where the pain resides and how it came about. This can help them tailor your adjustment to your specific needs.

The ache itself isn't always the problem. A joint restriction causing some discomfort to your body may also be interfering with your mind-body connection and your nervous system. It can be hard to sleep, focus, stay upright, and deal with stress because of it. Eliminating this subluxation and therefore the pain, can also aid in improving these other issues.

Sleep for Pain

Some may argue that sleep is difficult to come by when you're feeling sore. Though this is often true, chiropractic care should help to relax your body enough to get the sleep you need. No matter if you struggle to fall asleep or not, actually getting rest once it comes will help to ease some of the aches you're feeling. Sleep is necessary for repair and recovery of your body. 

There are other ways to help yourself fall and stay asleep so you may get the rest you need to ease your discomfort. Setting a bedtime is one option. The more your body gets used to needing to try to sleep at a certain time, the easier it will become to actually fall asleep in that time-frame. You can also block out light with room-darkening curtains and stop using electronics within two hours before bed to help.

Pain is a part of life, but it doesn't have to keep you from your daily activities. Do what you can to prevent pain by getting routine chiropractic care and as much sleep as possible. Your body needs help sometimes to handle the aches that come from a busy life. Visit The Joint Chiropractic for the assistance you need for improved well-being.
