Chiropractic Care For Better Sleep
Sleep issues are common but not normal. Regular caffeine and/or alcohol intake, an irregular sleep schedule, and too warm of a temperature in the bedroom can all contribute to poor sleep. While lifestyle habits are essential to improving sleep hygiene, there are additional measures necessary for specific conditions. Chiropractic adjustments can help provide relief for those who suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia and more.
This condition can occur when the tissue structures in the airway relax into a position that obstructs the airway, cutting off breathing intermittently over the course of sleep. This can lead to oxygen deprivation during the most important healing time of the day.
For better sleep, chiropractic care can improve the alignment and balance of the spine and restore the natural curvature to the cervical spine, which can create ease in the soft tissues running through the neck. When the neck and head can lie in proper alignment during sleep, more restful sleep is possible.
Trouble falling asleep can be from a number of stressful causes. Mental stress, drinking alcohol and caffeinated beverages, and exercising too late in the day can all unnaturally ramp up the body too close to bedtime. Reliance on sleep aids and then withdrawal when trying to stop can also interrupt sleep. Chiropractic adjustment for sleep can alleviate sleep disorders such as insomnia.
Chiropractic clients often report experiencing better sleep after adjustments. Increasing parasympathetic tone in the nervous system helps the body move into a rest-and-digest state more efficiently.
Restless Leg Syndrome
This condition is common but not well-understood as it does not have a definitive cause. The common thread among sufferers is the uncontrollable urge to move or touch the unsettled limb. While it can be distracting, irritating, and painful at any time of day, nighttime symptoms interrupt vital rest and recovery.
Chiropractic care for sleep can help relax muscles, reduce pain and discomfort, and increase blood flow to allow better oxygenation in the body. All of these states lend themselves to a better night’s sleep.
