Better Sleep

You are not alone if you have problems sleeping or staying asleep.

According to the American Sleep Association (ASA),

50 to 70 million Americans experience some form of sleep

disturbance. Sleep issues can make it difficult for you to get the

rest you need for optimal health and well-being. Fortunately,

chiropractic treatment can help you get better sleep.


Good Health Depends on Good Sleep

Chronic sleep loss causes a wide range of health issues. These symptoms include exhaustion during the day, irritation, trouble focusing, slowness of responsiveness, a compromised immune system, and memory problems. Being sleep-deprived makes it challenging to think effectively and act promptly. For instance, this cognitive delay may be hazardous when driving a car or other work-related duties. Of course, it is difficult to live a good life if you are continually exhausted and unrested.

Additionally, the harmful effects of sleep deprivation worsen with each night that you have a restless night. Your chance of developing numerous significant medical diseases rises over time. These include diabetes, depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, seizures, heart attacks, stroke, and impaired immune systems. Lack of sleep can also impact your sex drive, memory, and ability to concentrate at work or school.

How Can Chiropractic Care Contribute to Better Sleep?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, almost one-third of people who have had a chiropractic adjustment claim to notice an instant improvement in sleep.


Regular chiropractic care for patients with sleep issues provides the following benefits:


  • Eased muscle tension that causes restlessness 

  • Relaxed body 

  • Relieved pain and discomfort

  • Stimulated circulation and blood flow 

  • Improved central nervous system function

In addition to adjustments, your chiropractor might recommend a better sleeping position, postural exercises, a supportive mattress, and an ergonomic pillow after a comprehensive examination to aid restful sleep.

At Renewed Mobility Chiropractic, we give practical advice on how to optimize sleep.
