If you are having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep at night you are not alone. For some people that are not getting enough sleep, there can be multiple reasons why this is happening such as:
Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
Working long hours
Caring for children
There are many different types and varying different degrees of insomnia. Almost all adults suffer from one type of insomnia at some point in their lives. Chiropractic treatments can be very helpful and beneficial when treating insomnia caused by either pain or discomfort in the spinal area or nervous system. Chiropractic treatments can also be a helpful solution with other types of insomnia by helping the body to relax better, to more easily attain sleep.
Although chiropractic care may not cure insomnia, the relief from pain and stress on the spine and nervous system can be enough to help the body to completely relax to allow you to sleep more comfortably. When sleep is attained, it is important that the spine is in alignment to allow the body to get the rest it needs. Making lifestyle changes and sleeping habit changes can also positively affect sleep patterns.
