Lullaby Baby: Your Chiropractor Will Help You Sleep

By Brandi Goodman 

Sleep can be difficult to come by -- especially when you have stressful thoughts swirling around your head, an ache in your neck or back, or are just simply wound up and not ready to hit the sack. The chiropractor would be the one to turn to in times like these. Some help from them could be all the lullaby you need to drift off.

Easing Your Dilemmas

An adjustment can do a lot of wonders for your physical pain and your mental ailments. Whatever's keeping you up at night, let your chiropractor ease your dilemmas. Correcting joint restrictions or subluxations may take away some of your discomfort, allowing you to rest easier. The time away from your daily life to get an adjustment and focus on your own well-being can also help to relax you, which is another path toward better sleep.

Suggesting Sleep Positions

Your chiropractor will do more than provide an adjustment. You may also receive some helpful suggestions that can make falling asleep easier. Your chiropractor may have some advice on the best sleep positions. Usually, doctors do not recommend sleeping on your stomach. This position interrupts the natural curve of your spine and can place unnecessary stress on your body. You might be encouraged to try side sleeping, perhaps with a pillow between your knees, for optimal comfort.

Recommendations on Mattresses and Pillows

The right mattress and pillow can go a long way. If you have an old mattress with a sunken spot, you probably find it difficult to get any rest. If your pillow is bulky and causes your neck discomfort, you won't find any relief with that either. You can ask your chiropractor for recommendations on the best mattress and pillow to use for better sleep. 

When it comes to mattresses, you'll want to update yours at least every eight years. You can also rotate or flip the mattress so you're sleeping on an unworn side. In terms of pillows, a chiropractic pillow that offers neck support will usually be what a chiropractor recommends. That $5 pillow from your local store won't suffice.

Never let too many nights pass without any sleep. If you're having trouble, it's important to see a chiropractor so you can get some relief -- and some rest. Sleep is vital to overall health. Without it, you may find yourself irritable, unfocused, exhausted, overly stressed, and even ill. Stop in at The Joint Chiropractic to see how they may help you enjoy a more restful night.
