Sleep is crucial to the health and wellness of everybody. Working on less sleep than you need can lead to stress, and can cause potential health hazards depending on your job. An estimated 50 million to 70 million Americans have some type of sleep-related problem. While 70% of Americans report having trouble sleeping at least once a month. If you’re at your wit’s end and find yourself asking, “Can chiropractic care help me sleep?” The answer is yes!
Chiropractic Care Reduces Tension
Chiropractic care helps you sleep better in a multitude of ways. The first is that it reduces tension. It can be very difficult to fall asleep when your body is holding on to tension. Whether that be from working a stressful job, a physically taxing schedule, or from stressors in life, tension can inhibit your ability to sleep well. Regular chiropractic care helps to relieve this tension allowing you a more restful night’s sleep.
Helps With Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a disease that over 20 million Americans suffer from. This disease causes momentary pauses in breathing when you sleep. This causes you to wake so that your body resumes breathing. With chiropractic care, we can help realign and reduce tension throughout the body that may be contributing to your airway blockages. Chiropractic care helps remove nerve interference that may be causing your sleep apnea to begin with. With proper breathing techniques and strengthening the muscles around your airway, you can see your sleep apnea improve drastically.
If you have been struggling with back pain whether it is chronic or not, it can make sleeping feel unattainable. With chiropractic care, these aches and pains can be reduced and removed completely. Chiropractic care can help improve nervous system function which helps migraines, muscle tension, joint pain, and many other aches and pains that are contributing to your sleepless nights.
Temporary Sleep Issues
For those of you who may only be dealing with short-term sleeping issues due to pregnancy, or other life changes, we can help you too! Chiropractic care can help ease your transitions in pregnancy allowing you to sleep better. Normal discomforts like round ligament pain or pubic symphysis don’t have to keep you up at night.
No matter your ailment, chiropractic care can help you attain better health by supporting your body through the healing process. Whether you’ve suffered a recent injury, or you are dealing with chronic pain, choosing to support your body’s innate ability to heal is the right decision.
