Can Chiropractic Care Help You To Have More Restful Sleep?

Many people deal with sleep deprivation. Getting the right amount of sleep is one very important component of being healthy. Chiropractors recognize that good health is based on 6 foundational pillars: exercise, nutrition, sleep, a properly functioning nervous system, psychological well-being, and good posture. Sleep issues are normally not just isolated to one thing. It is normally a physical, chemical, or mental stress.

Many sleep issues can be treated through chiropractic care. Chiropractic can treat your misalignments and pain that may be contributing sleep problems. If the lack of sleep is due to to stress, anxiety, or depression,  adjustments to the first 3 cervical vertebrae, in the upper neck, will increase the nerve supply to the limbic system. This part of the brain is responsible for emotions, behavior, motivation, and long-term memory among other things. Restoring the nerve supply to your limbic system will help you manage your stress. Chiropractic adjustments in general restore the proper nerve supply to your muscles which reduces muscle tension and spasms, this can help prevent sleep issues.
