Sleeping problems account for millions of hours of lost work, along with billions of dollars in medication and doctor bills. Sleeplessness has resulted in people seeking prescription medication, life style changes and relationship modifications. Chiropractors can offer alternative, holistic approaches to treat sleeplessness.
Sleep performs three vital functions to sustain life and vitality:
- Sleep rejuvenates the body chemistry for renewed energy through proper detoxification.
- Sleep recharges the immune system, repairs damage done to the body and promotes the growth of new tissue.
- Sleep helps process, sort and store everything learnt, felt or experienced during the day.
Chiropractors evaluate sleep complaints with a meticulous sleep history and physical examination with particular attention to the neurologic, cardiopulmonary, and psychological functions. Generally, chiropractic is a good alternative for those individuals who do not feel rested and who do not want to take prescription drugs to assist them in getting quality sleep.
Chiropractic adjustments can help in clearing up energy blockages throughout the body and increase circulation to taut and tired muscles, thereby improving deeper relaxation naturally.
It is important to see your Chiropractor if you are experiencing some of the signs and symptoms of poor sleep. Chiropractic treatments combined with nutritional supplements and dietary modifications may help achieve deeper, more restful sleep on a nightly basis and improve your overall health.
