Chiropractic for Sleep
Poor sleep is one of the most commonly reported problems in adults across the US. There are many different reasons why someone might be sleeping poorly, not to mention a myriad of negative side effects that come from not getting enough quality sleep.
Obvious consequences of getting poor sleep include things like grogginess and fatigue, but there are plenty of other, and surprisingly serious, effects of poor sleep. Studies show that a lack of sleep can cause the following:
- Difficulty with critical thinking
- Increased likelihood of causing accidents
- Decreased sex drive
- Aging in the skin
- Increased risk of health problems like heart disease, diabetes and stroke
- Memory problems
- Impaired judgement
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
Aside from natural ways of improving your sleep – like decreasing the amount of time you look at blue light screens and avoiding caffeine and alcohol – an effective way of improving your sleep is with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic adjustments are a holistic method of improving your sleep. By getting rid of the misalignments in your spine and relieving your nervous system, chiropractors are able to improve both your quality and quantity of sleep.
