Sleep is essential to healing because your body is better able to accelerate the healing process when properly rested. Your body needs rest to heal. If you are in pain, it can be challenging to find a comfortable position to rest. As Chiropractors, we understand this better than anyone.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Help You Sleep Better
Chiropractic care has been shown to increase your spinal range of motion, decrease inflammation, and even reduce the pressure on the delicate nerves exiting your spinal column – all of which will make it much easier to find a comfortable sleep position.
Finding a comfortable position to sleep when you’re in pain can be difficult. Chiropractic Adjustments reduce the stress on your spine, helping you more easily find a comfortable position to sleep.
Neck and back pain are the most common reasons people experience sleep disturbances. Patients talk about sleeping on the floor, or sleeping in a lazy boy, or even sleeping bent over their bed attempting to get into a position that helps them get those few precious moments of rest and relief.
Talk about a pain!
All you want is the ability to get some rest, yet every position seems to make things feel worse. Well, don’t worry – you’re in the right place to get back on track!
Important Nighttime Rituals
Practicing a relaxing nighttime ritual, such as powering down your electronics and reading a book, can help prepare your body for a good night’s sleep – and don’t forget the TV. While some people like to sleep with the television on, researchers have found that minimizing background noise can help your brain get more rest.
In our own office, we’ve also heard from countless patients that they get a better night’s sleep after getting adjusted, which makes sense considering the numerous benefits of Chiropractic care.
Wind down for approximately 30 minutes before bed by turning off your electronics. Minimize background noise to help your brain get much-deserved rest.
Staying up late one night usually only results in feeling a little tired the next day, but when this happens day after day, it can start to negatively affect your life. Research has shown that a lack of proper sleep can result in:
- increased stress
- a weakened immune system
- joint pains.
However, by developing a few healthy habits, you’ll be able to ensure that your brain and body get the rest they deserve, so you are ready to have a productive next day.Adjusting Your Schedule for a Good Night's #Sleep Click To Tweet
