Oh sweet, elusive sleep! We insomniacs know the drill. Lying there with our eyes closed tight, hoping, counting sheep, praying, we eventually give up and get up. But don’t give up just yet, chiropractic care can help! Read on…
WHY CAN’T I SLEEP?
Let’s look at some of the reasons that your sleep may be interrupted. Primary insomnia (lack of sleep that is not triggered by another medical condition), can be caused by things like stress, travel, or major life changes. In fact, something as simple as worrying about not sleeping can keep you from sleeping! More serious secondary insomnia is a lack of sleep as a symptom of another medical condition such as obstructive sleep apnea, stroke, or obesity.
HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC WORK TO IMPROVE SLEEP?
It works like this: Because the nervous system controls and coordinates all the different functions of your body, any disruption in nerve communication to your organs and body tissues will result in abnormal function. Chiropractors help restore normal nerve function and communication, thereby allowing your body to work normally and naturally. It was reported in a recent study that one third of the 154 participants in one study, reported an immediate improvement in their sleep when receiving chiropractic care.
Pain is one of the leading reasons that sleep is interrupted. Pain relief is what True North Chiropractic is all about! Dr. Knight says, “Ultimately, your body was designed to operate in a balanced state. Throughout life, injuries, tweaks, or overused muscles can cause your body to become imbalanced. An aching back, frequent migraines, Frozen Shoulder Syndrome, neck pain, etc., are all usually a result of some imbalance or misalignment.” In providing real pain relief, Dr. Knight may be able to help you snooze soundly again!
Good sleep is so important to you and your health. Spinal alignment and pain management are key to ensuring that you get good sleep! Call Dr. Knight at True North Chiropractic and Wellness today, so that you can sleep well tonight.
