Chiropractic Care May Help You Sleep Better

By Paul Rothbart

Sleep. Is there anything more essential and desirable, yet sometimes so hard to attain? Perhaps there is, but sleep certainly ranks high on that list. For many people, tossing and turning all night occurs far too frequently. Even when feeling exhausted, there are nights when sleep just won't come. There is the old standby of counting sheep, but there are many other ways to help you sleep better. One that you may not have thought of, but yet has helped a significant number of people is visiting a chiropractor. Chiropractors are commonly associated with treating back pain and not for curing insomnia, but regular adjustments may aid in improving sleep. Here are some of the ways a trip to The Joint Chiropractic may help you sleep better.

Relieving Pain

A common reason for the inability to sleep is chronic pain. An achy back or joints cause enough discomfort to keep you awake. My left knee sometimes hurts enough to keep me awake. Shoulders, wrists, hips, any joint can make sleep difficult if not impossible. Neck pain in particular is detrimental to a good night's sleep. A chiropractic adjustment realign the spine and joints. This can stop the pain and make getting to sleep and staying asleep easier. 


Work, family, financial obligations. All of these can cause considerable mental stress. When the mind is stressed, the body is stressed. As the two are linked, the process can also work in reverse. Chiropractic care can relieve tension throughout the body. A more relaxed body leads to a more relaxed mind and this may help you sleep better. Better sleep means more productive days. Better problem solving, less, stress, better sleep. It's a nice cycle to be in. While chiropractic is not going to make stress go away, it may help you manage it better.


The causes of insomnia are many and sometimes it's hard to pin down the exact one. A misaligned spine impacts the entire body and may throw other joints and the nervous system out of balance. This condition can certainly make sleep difficult. Chiropractic care keeps the spine in alignment which does help the entire body. This is not a guaranteed cure for insomnia, but it may be helpful and it definitely worth trying. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a third of people who have chiropractic adjustments report an immediate improvement in sleep. You may be in that 33 percent.

Sleep is so important but it's not always easy to experience good sleep. A number of factors can make sleep difficult. Chiropractic care may be able to help. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic and have a talk with a licensed professional about your sleep experiences. Regular adjustments may be a part of the solution to ensuring a good night's sleep.
