Chiropractic Care for Insomnia and Sleep Disorder Relief

March 31, 2014

Never does sleep seem so important than when you’re not getting enough. Studies have shown that up to 60 percent of the population suffers from insomnia or sleep disorder. When you don’t get adequate sleep, your body increases its production of the stress hormone cortisol. If cortisol levels remain high for long periods, it can lead to a weakened immune system, loss of bone density and muscle mass, as well as trouble with your thyroid gland. In more severe cases, a lack of sleep can cause mental disorders.


What you may not know is that chiropractic care can be a very effective source of relief from insomnia and sleep disorders and doesn’t involve harmful drugs. Spinal adjustments free up nerves that are compressed and interrupting your brain’s communication with your body. Realigning your spine and correcting subluxations also improves circulation in your nervous system. Overall, this can help your body relax naturally.

When your spine has subluxations, it triggers your body’s natural stress response, which leads to insomnia, sleep disorders and a whole host of other potential health issues. A doctor of chiropractic can focus on helping your body get back to its proper alignment, so you’ll not only feel much better but sleep much better, too.

Combining the following tips with chiropractic care can help you get the best sleep possible:

  • Get into a routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time daily, so your body can recognize when it’s time to sleep.
  • Limit your caffeine intake, especially in the hours before you plan to sleep. For every caffeinated beverage you consume, drink an equal amount of water so you remain properly hydrated.
  • Avoid stimulating activities for an hour before you plan to go to bed.

The bottom line in chiropractic care — if you’re alive and have subluxations, you’re better off alive without nerve interference. Chiropractic Lifecare of America is one of the largest networks of qualified doctors of chiropractic across America.
