Statistics show that 50 to 70 million Americans have ongoing sleep disorders. Of that number, women are 40% more likely to have insomnia than men. Those numbers indicate that sleep problems are of epidemic proportions. Are you or someone you love affected? Are you tired of being tired? If so, it’s time to see your chiropractor.
There is a great deal of talk about sleep hygiene being the key to a good night’s sleep. And while we agree that the quality of your sleep can be improved with good sleep hygiene, the problem of insomnia, whether it is intermittent or chronic, goes beyond sleep hygiene for many, many people.
Chiropractic Makes a Difference
What can make the difference in creating a good night’s sleep on a regular basis? A visit to your chiropractor. Even those not suffering from insomnia usually report having their best night’s sleep after beginning chiropractic care. Why? Because the body is calmer when the nervous system is clear. Once the subluxations are removed and the body’s energy is able to flow freely, the static is eliminated, and the body becomes calm.
By alleviating the tension, encouraging blood flow, and removing any pain or discomfort that may or may not have existed, it becomes easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
When your spine is out of alignment, the body’s natural I.T. system is hampered, making it impossible for your nerves to communicate properly. This can disrupt your body’s and brain’s ability to shut down and interrupt your proper wake-up functions.
Your physician might be quick to prescribe a prescription drug, or you might seek an over the counter medication. Either way, this is not the path to restoring your sleep naturally and without side effects.
If untreated, insomnia can affect all areas of your life and lead to numerous health problems including diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and obesity. Additionally, studies show that poor sleep for extended periods of time can affect your longevity.
Time Better Spent
Insomnia also robs you of quality, productive time that could be spent with family, friends, being more productive at work, and enjoying the pastimes you love.
