Adjusting for good sleep

Who couldn’t use a better night’s rest? Amongst the stress, tension, anxiety and disruptions to our sleep patterns it’s hard to tell what kind of sleep we are getting every night. Getting a full night’s rest is important (duh) and sets the tone for the following day. We all know the tips to getting better rest (exercise, consistency, dark environment, no electronics, etc.) but did you know that chiropractic care can also be beneficial for a good night’s sleep?

Chiropractic care is quite the unexpected solution to restless nights. We typically see Dr. Dawes for discomfort, pain, and proper realignment but we  sometimes forget about the side effects of seeking chiropractic care. Subluxations in the spine can disrupt nerve function which can lead  to sleep disturbances. But once the doctor performs adjustments and gets everything moving properly, one can see an increase in their sleep quality. The adjustment can alleviate tension, encourage better blood flow, and help muscles relax, making it easier to fall asleep.

Do you know someone who is pregnant? Or maybe, that someone might be you? Chiropractic care during pregnancy is perfectly safe and encouraged to reduce back pain while the body grows.  Back pain is a very common complaint of pregnant women and often affects how they sleep. Adjusting a pregnant woman can lead to her being able to rest better at night and get the sleep she needs to continue with a healthy pregnancy.

A good evening’s rest is best for our overall health and well being. When seeking chiropractic care and all of its advantages, do not forget that sleeping well each night will allow you to heal soon and give your body the opportunity to heal from within!
