How to Get Better Sleep with Chiropractic Care

If you are having trouble getting a good night’s sleep and it is affecting your concentration, memory or mood, seeing a chiropractor will help improve the quality of your shuteye.

While chiropractors are generally not known for being experts on sleep issues, studies have shown people who receive regular chiropractic adjustments have reported that they experienced sleep improvement.

If it’s pain that’s preventing you from sleeping —whether back pain, neck pain or headaches—seeking chiropractic care will help relieve discomfort and improve relaxation and blood flow. Your chiropractor will also tell you which particular sleep position is best for you and whether a better supportive mattress or even a chiropractic pillow might be the key to ending your restless nights.

Spine Health & Sleep Quality Go Hand In Hand

Chiropractic care is mostly viewed as a means for managing back and neck pain – but it serves as so much more. Chiropractic care is a holistic healthcare option that can greatly improve sleep habits. Studies have proven that adjusting the spine successfully changes hormones that assist the sleep cycle.

When the spine is in its correct alignment, the body is more likely to operative at its best level because as the spinal column protects the body’s central nervous system, it facilitates communication between the body and the brain.

Communication between the body and the brain may become disturbed when the spine faces issues, such as a misalignment or inflammation from a strain, leading the body to have a harder time regulating the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. This puts the body out of balance and sleeping well becomes an issue. However, chiropractic care will help correct any misalignments, releasing pain and tension that is built in the spine, allowing your body to relax and fall asleep.

Chiropractic care also boosts the body’s central nervous system. Many efficient functions of our body and mind are controlled by the central nervous system. The more efficient your body, the least amount of energy wasted, and the easier it is for your body and mind to unwind.

Chiropractic Care – A Natural Approach to a Better Night’s Sleep

If you don’t want to rely on sleeping pills to give you a good night’s rest, make your next step an appointment with your chiropractor. Quality care will lead to a better night’s sleep, and quality sleep will lead to better overall health.

Studies show regular chiropractic care can help resolve several problems that may be the cause of sleepless nights, such as back pain, breathing problems, and restless leg syndrome. Many people who have sought regular chiropractic adjustments have reduced the symptoms and conditions of insomnia, thus improving the quality of their day-to-day routine. Many of Dr. Merckling’s patients at Merckling Family Chiropractic PC have noticed a more restful sound sleep after their adjustments.
