If you have had problems sleeping recently, you may relate to several symptoms such as irritability, frustration, increased stress, memory and cognitive impairment and a poorer concentration rate than before. These symptoms can lead to an increased likelihood in injuries while working, driving or carrying out activities of daily living. Over a prolonged period of time, chronic sleep loss can contribute to high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, endocrine failures and obesity.
Not feeling well rested?
Poor posture, either whilst sleeping or during the day, can lead to pain and discomfort while trying to rest and sleep. Some people experience muscle spasms, cramps, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet while trying to sleep; many wake up with similar muscle spasms, tightness and stiffness in their spine and especially the neck after sleep. These symptoms are all related to your spine and its muscles and nerves.
Getting comfortable for a good night’s rest.
In a recent study (2015, Leonard Vernon) of 221 chiropractic patients, 98% of those who replied in the interview claimed they slept better after chiropractic care.
Following a chiropractic session, good spinal alignment allows the muscles in your body to relax helping you sleep better and giving your body both the time and space to heal itself.
