Almost everyone develops problems with sleep at some point in life. And according to the American Sleep Association, 50 to 70 million of us suffer from an actual sleep disorder. That’s a lot of lost sleep, and that adds up to a lot of cranky workers, exhausted parents, and irritable students.

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with a disorder like insomnia or sleep apnea, or just know that you’re struggling with getting enough rest, you might be happy to learn that chiropractic care can help resolve your problems. According to the National Sleep Foundation, about one-third of patients have reported an immediate improvement in sleep after a chiropractic adjustment.

Yes, chiropractic care can help with more than back pain. Since we address the functioning of the entire nervous system, including how it sends and receives messages to the rest of the body, adjustments can help to promote sounder, healthier sleep. Chiropractic care can help in a number of ways, such as…

  • Relaxing your whole body
  • Addressing muscle tension that prevents quality sleep
  • Relieving pain that keeps you up at night
  • Stimulating healthy blood circulation
  • Promote proper breathing which can help with sleep apnea
  • Improving your overall nervous system function

Because some conditions, like sleep apnea, can be related to other medical conditions, do discuss your symptoms with your primary care physician. They should screen you for related disorders.
