Over the past 70 years, Americans have had a 13% decrease in the amount of hours they sleep each night. The CDC states that 35% of adults don’t get enough sleep. Yet, according to the American Psychology Association, sleeping 60 to 90 minutes more per night can make you happier and healthier. Whether it’s due to everyday life, or a condition like insomnia or sleep apnea, chiropractic care can help you improve your sleep.
Why Seek Chiropractic Care for Sleep Issues?
Your first course of action when dealing with sleep issues should be to find a non-medicated way to help you overcome the issues and sleep better. This is one reason why chiropractic care is the perfect solution if you are facing sleep deprivation or other sleep issues.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help Sleep Issues?
Chiropractic care focuses on your spine and spinal health. By focusing our chiropractic adjustments on your areas of joint dysfunction, they can cause pain reduction and muscle relaxation. This allows your body to be more comfortable and cause you to get to sleep earlier.
These adjustments may also help with other chemical balances, such as dopamine and serotonin. This will aid in providing relief from sleep issues. They can also help with other aspects of your nervous system function which will improve your sleep.
In addition to treating your subluxations for sleep issues, our chiropractors may find additional causes and provide other recommendations. These may include recommendations such as nutrition, supplement, and lifestyle changes. Over your course of treatment, you should notice an improvement in your sleep. This should bring you to that happier and healthier self we mentioned above.
