Chiropractic Adjustments Help You Sleep Better

It always amazes me that so often the first thing that many new patients notice after starting care is that they are sleeping better. Many did not even realize that their posture problems were interfering with them enjoying a restful night of sleep. Once they have the pleasure of falling asleep peacefully and staying asleep all night, they can’t believe the difference it makes in their lives. More energy, better mood, better concentration. But how does posture correction through chiropractic treatment help people sleep better?

It all comes down to the subluxation. A subluxation is a chiropractic term used to describe what happens to the nerves when spinal segments are not aligned properly. Misaligned vertebrae squeeze down on the nerves that run between the spinal segments interfering with their normal function.

A lot like stepping on a garden hose, the normal nerve pathway becomes partially blocked and altered. This is commonly experienced by most people as pain, but it can also lead to a sense of restlessness, nervousness and inability to relax fully as improper signals are sent from the nerves to the brain calling for the contraction of both voluntary and involuntary muscles. Restlessness makes falling asleep difficult and pain often interferes with your ability to stay asleep.

Chiropractic adjustments realign the segments of the spine to remove subluxation. When the pressure of a misaligned vertebrae is removed, normal nerve signals transmit appropriate messages to the brain. This means a reduction in pain symptoms like headaches, back pain, neck pain and migraine. It also means that both voluntary and involuntary muscles are able to fully relax reducing things like muscle tension, restlessness and allowing you feel calm and relaxed. These all contribute to a much better night’s sleep allowing you to fall asleep more quickly, stay asleep and awaken refreshed.
