Sleep Better

  • by

Are you tired of being tired? Do you feel more exhausted when you wake up than when you went to bed? Our bodies require quality sleep to be able to function properly.

If you find yourself staring at the ceiling night after night, your muscles and brain function are suffering. Obviously, a change needs to be made, but how do you know what needs to be changed? It could be that you are using the wrong pillow, wrong mattress, wrong sleep position, grinding your teeth, not breathing properly, headaches, pain, nutrition, or even anxiety. Before you buy an expensive new bed or hire a team of experts to monitor your sleep patterns, maybe it is time to schedule a chiropractic appointment.

No matter which of these issues is causing your restlessness, a chiropractor can help you wake up feeling well rested and ready to conquer the day.

A chiropractor can evaluate your sleeping pattern. Talking about your sleeping position and environment with your chiropractor allows them to give guidance on what might be causing the lack of sleep; they may even recommend a particular kind of pillow or mattress to improve your rest. Chiropractors are also able to help with your headaches, pain, nutrition, breathing, and anxiety. Pain, headaches, and nutrition issues can often be alleviated through gentle, spinal manipulation and supplements. Did you know that breathing issues and anxiety are often made worse by poor blood flow? Thankfully, chiropractic care also improves blood flow, allowing the body to relax.

One morning at Connect Chiropractic, a patient did not show up for their day 2 appointment. We thought it was unusual, since she had just come in for the first time the night before to address sleep issues she had been having. We called to make sure she was doing alright and reschedule her appointment, but it only went to voicemail. We were worried sick. Finally, just after 11:00am, we got a call from the patient. We were thrilled that she was okay, but not as thrilled as the patient. “I JUST WOKE UP!” She didn’t shout it as an apology or an excuse or anything like that. She was shouting through tears. After years of restlessness, she had just accidentally slept past 11:00am. She has been seeing Dr. Blair for several months now, and she is a new person. When we met, she was worn out from work and life; now she is energetic and has an obvious enthusiasm for life.

Bringing that kind of hope to the community is the reason Connect Chiropractic exists. It is the reason Dr. Blair became a chiropractor, and it is the reason we would love to see how chiropractic care can benefit you.

If you are exhausted, don’t let it keep getting worse. Schedule an appointment with a chiropractor today.
