We all know the damage a lack of sleep can create, from poor concentration to a weakened immune system. For those struggling to get the rest they need, chiropractic care can serve as a potential means for improving the quality of your sleep.
In fact, in an article from Sleep.org it is stated that roughly 1 in 3 people who have a chiropractic adjustment reported an immediate sleep improvement.
It is worth noting that chiropractic care only poses a potential sleep solution for those dealing with physical pain and is not a solution for those struggling to fall asleep because their mind is racing with thoughts or similar issues.
How does this work?
A common cause for struggling to fall asleep is back or neck pain, an issue that often gets blamed on your mattress. While your mattress could be part of the problem, the pain could be a sign of a larger misalignment issue in your body.
An adjustment can be a potential relief for your pain as well as improve your blood flow. If you are struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep, this can be a great option.

You have been sleeping your entire life and likely do not give a second thought to how you sleep. But this may be a key component in putting an end to your restless nights. A chiropractor can help advise you on ideal positioning for your rest, which could include adding pillows for support.
The benefits are not restricted exclusively to adults either, a few months ago we discussed the benefits of your children seeing a chiropractor.
If you are interested in seeing if adjustments could make a difference in your sleep quality, or to receive any feedback on your current sleep positioning, consider consulting one of our experienced chiropractors.
