Sleep Soundly With Chiropractic Advice in Mind

By Brandi Goodman 

Sleep can be hard to achieve for some people. You may find it difficult to drift off at night and wake in the morning feeling just as tired as when you went to bed. Sleep soundly with some chiropractic advice that can help to make your sleeping situation more comfortable. 

Purchase a Chiropractic Pillow

Any old pillow purchased from the store won't do for a good night's rest. A chiropractic pillow provides more comfort and support for your neck. These pillows have an indent for your head with padding surrounding it that cradles your neck and keeps you at ease. You may see them sold as cervical support pillows.

Avoid Sleeping on Your Stomach

It may be easier said than done to change your sleeping position after years of using it, but certain ways of sleeping can be damaging to the body. For example, sleeping on the stomach is not recommended because you do not maintain the natural curve of your spine in this position.

Upgrade Your Mattress

Your mattress may play a major role in the quality of sleep you get each night. If you have an unsupportive mattress that's been kept for years, chances are high that you're not sleeping soundly. A supportive mattress that is comfortable is best to have. Mattresses should be replaced at least every eight years. Be sure to upgrade if it's been about that time or longer, or if you can't seem to remember when it was purchased at all.  

Eat Protein, Not Carbs

Within a few hours before bed it is best to consume more protein. Protein is necessary for generating new cells and will help your body maintain a proper digest and rest cycle. Carbs should be avoided before bed, as they tend to provide a boost of energy. You don't want to be energized right before you try to fall asleep. 

Schedule Regular Chiropractic Visits

Regular trips to the chiropractor may improve your sleep. If your body is constantly feeling tense due to stress or joint restrictions that interfere with the mind and body connection, it can be tough to get comfortable enough to fall asleep at night. Visiting the chiropractor often can ensure these subluxations are removed and the body is functioning as it should. This should help you drift off to sleep easier than usual. 

Getting enough sleep each night is vital to overall health and well-being. Visit The Joint Chiropractic for regular adjustments as well as additional advice on how to remain healthy and well so sleep is easier to come by. It may just boost your wellness like never before.
