Getting a good night’s sleep is critical – it’s what provides energy to get through the next day while recharging you to face what’s ahead. It affects energy levels and even your moods.
But, sometimes sleep can be hard to find. Sufferers of insomnia have a hard time falling or staying asleep and 10% of the population suffers more than every now and then, with a chronic sleep issue like insomnia.
Is what you’re suffering from insomnia? A few symptoms include:
- Trouble falling asleep,
- Waking up multiple times during the night,
- Waking up too early without being able to fall back asleep,
- Waking up feeling tired, as though you didn’t sleep, and more.
Beyond the typical symptoms, daytime drowsiness, low concentration levels, a reduction in energy, an increase in irritability and weight gain are all associated with the condition. There are a variety of causes to sleeplessness that include emotions, foods, drinks, too much light, inactive lifestyles and more.
So, you’re suffering with sleep – what’s next?
Surprising to some, chiropractic care can increase your ability to get a good night’s rest. By removing internal interferences in the nervous system that can arise from improper alignment, the body’s natural processes can be restored. One of these processes is sleep. In fact, many chiropractic patients report an increase in restful sleep from the very beginning of treatment.
While medication is appropriate in some cases, chiropractic care should be your first step when facing sleep troubles. Ready to get a good night’s rest? Contact LeVan Chiropractic today and set up a consultation. We’re excited to work with you.
