How a Healthy Spine May Improve Your Sleep

If you got enough sleep last night, you probably woke up normally. You likely didn’t wake up thinking about how much sleep you got, or how great it is that you slept well. You probably didn’t think about it at all. In the reverse, however, sleep is probably in the forefront of your mind. While adequate sleep requires little attention, the lack of sleep wreaks havoc.

When you don’t get enough, you might feel sluggish, have trouble concentrating, or even have random aches and pains around the body. If you would like to increase your quality of sleep, try chiropractic care. Many people have found this form of treatment to be effective in improving overall sleep. Read on to find out just how chiropractic care may be able to improve your sleep and leave you feeling better than ever.

Less Pain

Chiropractic care has been known to improve the aches and pains felt around the body. Why? A chiropractor works by aligning the spine properly. When the spine is misaligned, it can cause or at least contribute to some of these ache and pains. By aligning the spine, it can remove these aches and pains and make the body feel healthier in general. And of course, with less pain often comes better sleep. It is a win-win for everyone.

Focused Mind

Another great benefit of chiropractic care is an increased ability to concentrate. Another negative symptom of a misaligned is the inability to concentrate. This can build up causing a severely “foggy” mind and an influx of thoughts as you lie down to go to sleep. When the mind can’t focus, it can’t relax. Without the ability to relax, real and good quality sleep may not come, and you wind up with less than stellar sleep and a mind that never got the rest that it needed.

Healthy Central Nervous System

The spine is a huge part of the central nervous system, or the CNS. The CNS is responsible for transmitting messages all over the body. When the spine is misaligned or otherwise unhealthy, it can cause these messages to get delayed, misconstrued, or never sent at all. Without the  healthy function of the body’s communications system, multiple systems in the body may suffer. This can contribute to poor sleep since the body doesn’t work efficiently and doesn’t get the cues that it needs to properly function or wind down at the end of a long day.
