How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Sleep
It is a common misconception that we visit the chiropractor only to ease pain or mend injury. There is so much more to chiropractic care than just spinal adjustments. Chiropractors utilise their skills to help patients achieve better quality of life in general, and a significant portion of this is helping them to attain a proper night’s sleep. Each week approximately 200,000 Australians seek chiropractic treatment. Many of these patients advise their chiropractors that they sleep much better after receiving correct spinal care.
It is important to take care of our waking selves. But what about our sleeping selves? We spend about one third of our lives asleep, however it is generally overlooked as a big blank space that we mostly don’t remember. If we can take good care of ourselves in waking hours, we should ensure that we nurture our sleeping hours as well, as they are equally important to the quality of our health and wellbeing.
One thing you can do to improve your sleep health is to visit a chiropractor, to ensure that your spinal alignment is correct and not hindering your ability to fall into a deep sleep. Poor sleep can affect us in a range of ways, including:
- Reduced Work Performance
- Reduced Academic Performance
- Reduced Positivity Levels
- Strain on Personal Relationships
- Increased Risk of Health Issues, such as Obesity or Diabetes
- Increased Auto and Workplaces Accidents
When abnormal stress is placed on your spine, tension may be caused to adjoining muscles and ligaments, so the position of your spine while you sleep is critical to your health. This is where Sleepy’s comes in. If you have been sleeping on the same mattress for 7-10 years or longer, a new mattress might be a necessary investment into your health.
Sleepy’s is the only retailer with a range of mattresses tested and endorsed by the Chiropractor’s Association of Australia (CAA). The CAA is the peak body representing chiropractors, and it is the largest chiropractic health body in Australia, whose principles for a healthier life mirror Sleepy’s: “healthy spine, healthier life”.
