Does Chiropractic Care Help Sleep?

oes Chiropractic Care Help Sleep

Did you know that around 50-70 million adults in the US have a sleep disorder? An insufficient amount of sleep can be associated with health problems that result in muscle pain. Well there is some good news, chiropractic care from Back and Body NY can help improve sleep, but how?

From what researchers understand, the relationship between sleep and muscle pain is bi directional. This means that people with a sleep disorder are more likely to have muscle pain, and vice versa. 

Chiropractic care has been studied in those who have certain sleep related disorders, such as fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia includes sleep issues, fatigue, and pain in the body. A study conducted in 2000 found that fibromyalgia patients who receive 30 chiropractic treatments experienced improved symptoms. 

Low back and neck pain are common sleep interfering conditions, and chiropractic care has been proven and even recommended to help. 

Back and Body NY wants you to know that there are endless treatments to help with sleep troubles: manipulation, mobilization, and soft-tissue work that helps relax the nervous system; nutritional approaches, like melatonin, L-theanine, 5-HTP (5-hydroxy-tryptophan), and valerian root; weight management (obesity is a risk factor for insomnia); and education/advice on sleeping position, napping, relaxation methods (breathing exercises, mindful meditation), no “screen-time” prior to bed, pillow placement and size, and even more.
