CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP ME SLEEP BETTER?
Your posture is more than just a standing issue.
Have you considered how your posture may affect your sleep? Given that approximately one-third of our lives are spent in bed, it’s worth watching your sleep time posture when considering spinal health.
We all know that sleep is essential as it allows the body to rest and heal, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Many sleep experts commonly state that between 6-8 hours of sleep per night is sufficient.
Chiropractors understand just how important good sleep is to your health and overall wellness. Our team here at The Back Clinic (a Bankstown City Chiropractic Clinic) understand just how important good sleep is. We can provide you with an advisory consultation on your posture in relation to your sleep patterns.
Infact, many chiropractic clinics often provide advice and appropriate recommendations to patients who experience poor sleep due to back pain, posture and other musculoskeletal issues.
“Patients with spinal problems have greater difficulty falling asleep, have more frequent awakenings, sleep subjectively less well, take more and longer naps, and snore more*.
Sleep disorders such as insomnia have been associated with ‘painful musculoskeletal conditions that may result in sleepiness, irritability and feelings of misery.’**
Both these studies highlight just how spinal and postural problems may negatively affect sleep. Think about this: how well do you sleep? If you have difficulty in sleeping, do you think your spinal health and posture may be a contributing factor to sleep problems?
