According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, about 70 million people per year across the country suffer from some kind of sleep disorder. That’s roughly 21% of the U.S. population. There are plenty of tools and techniques available to those who struggle to get a restful sleep. But maybe you’ve tried all the tips and tricks: exercise, sleep masks, schedule changes, blue-light limitation, etc. What else is there to do?

DiBella Chiropractic Center is here to offer an alternative solution. Quality rest is essential to daily function, and lack of sleep can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. Chiropractic can help you reclaim your sleep time and take back your life. But how exactly can we help? Let’s dive a little deeper into the link between chiropractic care and better, healthier rest.

First, chiropractors are the ideal physicians to evaluate your sleeping habits and recommend changes that would improve your rest. Something as simple as your sleep position could cause shifts in your skeleton, leading to discomfort and restlessness. You may even be recommended a special mattress or pillow that conforms to your body and the way you sleep.

Second, chiropractic adjustments do wonders for pain and discomfort in your body. Many people have trouble falling asleep because of soreness in their neck, shoulders, back, or legs. A chiropractor can help alleviate symptoms and restore alignment to your vertebrae with gentle spinal manipulations. This will improve day-to-day function, as well as promoting healthy sleep.

Finally, stress and anxiety are particularly burdensome when trying to fall asleep. Surely most people can relate to lying awake at night, your brain still spinning a hundred miles an hour, unable to switch it off. In fact, many sleep disorders are linked to an overactive nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments are the ideal way of treating stress and anxiety, eliminating tension in muscles, and promoting relaxation.
