Sleepy? Chiropractic Care Might Help
By Genevieve Cunningham
Sleep is a big deal in our health and our lives. When we don’t get enough (which for me is all of the time!), we often experience negative side effects. But the bigger concern is not why a lack of sleep is bad, but rather why it happens in the first place. What is making us stare at the ceiling all night? Why can’t we shut off our brains and go to sleep? If you’re experiencing a problem with your sleeping habits, take a look at these three common sleeping conditions, followed by how getting chiropractic care might help beat them for good.
Insomnia is a complicated problem. Often times, doctors aren’t really sure what causes it. Come chiropractors think that it could be caused, or at least exacerbated, by a misalignment of the spine. This, quite obviously, would not be every case of insomnia, but enough to make seeking treatment worth it. Chiropractors will properly align the spine. When this happens, many people report benefits such as less pain, more energy, and better sleep over time.
Sleep apnea happens when a person pauses breathing during sleep. This can cause a disruption in sleep, snoring, and excessive fatigue. So, how can a chiropractor help? If a chiropractor determines that sleep apnea is your problem, they might use a combination of soft tissue massage and spinal alignment to help with proper breathing. This can sometimes ease the symptoms of sleep apnea and help you sleep like a baby.
Tossing and Turning
If your problem is constant tossing and turning, your problem may be all in the comfort of your body. An uncomfortable body makes it difficult to relax and fall asleep. Chiropractors may be able to help by adjusting the spine, which may then lead to less pain and greater comfort. You might feel this in the back, neck, or in the joints. Over time and with continued care, you may find that your body is in so much less pain that falling and staying asleep is no longer difficult.
