Woman sleeping peacefully in bedAre you not getting enough sleep? Or waking up more tired than before you went to bed? Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health.

That can mean changing part of your lifestyle so that your time in dreamland is restful and you wake charged for the next day. That could also mean making an appointment for a chiropractic adjustment. A sleep that’s broken or leaves you tossing and turning for hours can also result in back or neck pain over time. This can also happen from not using the right pillows.

A chiropractor can get your back pain under control and also improve the quality of your sleep. You can eventually wake up feeling rested from some of the best sleep of your life. Here’s how it’s done.

A chiropractor can alleviate the discomfort that’s causing restless sleep. Some patients get into bed already feeling the effects of a spinal misalignment. Poor sleep only makes this worse over time. Spinal adjustments can improve blood flow which aids in promoting relaxation and gets your body ready for the night ahead.

A chiropractor can evaluate your sleeping pattern and provide solutions. Your doctor of chiropractic will discuss your sleeping position and recommend one that may be better for you based on their evaluation. They may also discuss a particular pillow or supportive mattress that will be key to an improved night.

Chiropractic care eases tension and improves body efficiencies. Correcting misalignments allows your spine to release tension that naturally builds up. The release of this tension allows your body to ease into. Chiropractic care also helps your body to be more efficient at using energy so it’s easier for your body to relax at the end of a long day.

If you’re suffering from a sleep condition such as insomnia or sleep apnea, or you simply can’t get a good night’s sleep, make an appointment to see a chiropractor so you can rest easy.
