Improve Sleeping Difficulties with Chiropractic Care

Table of Contents

Nothing is more frustrating than feeling like it’s impossible to get a good night’s sleep. Both adults and children can find themselves suffering from lack of sleep that can affect behavior, mood, and school or work performance. In a society where we get far less sleep than our bodies actually need, we are left with an inability to concentrate, an increased risk of illness, extreme fatigue, and other issues. If you find yourself awake at night and unable to sleep, know that you are not alone. Or if you are able to fall asleep but are still beyond exhausted in the morning, trust that it doesn’t have to be this way. Chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to promote healthy sleep habits so you can wake up feeling rested and ready to tackle the day.

Who Sufferers from Sleeplessness?

Adults, children, men, and women alike can suffer from restless nights with a lack of sleep. In children, poor sleep habits can cause developmental problems and lead to health concerns such as hyperactivity, ADD, behavioral concerns, and stunted brain growth. Because of this, it’s not an issue to take lightly. Parents may feel at a loss of how to help their child. They also can suffer from consequences of their child’s lack of sleep as it keeps others up, including themselves and other children in the home. Know that there is hope for those who suffer from sleeplessness, as chiropractic has been shown to be an effective method for improving sleep difficulties and correcting sleep patterns. Adults who suffer from sleeplessness can find their job performance declining or their relationships suffering. Insomnia, sleep apnea, or other health issues that keep adults awake at night affect their ability to function throughout the day and can cause emotional struggles, mood swings, and more. Before you begin to feel like life is spiraling out of control, seek chiropractic care to get more restful nights and better days.

What Causes Sleeplessness?

Many health factors can contribute to poor sleep habits such as breathing issues, chronic pain, or even neurological issues. Whatever the cause, medications can help with sleep, but they don’t treat the root issue. Medications also come with side effects that are potentially harmful. Instead of turning to medication to mask the issues of sleeplessness, turn to Metairie chiropractor Dr. Jeff Vitenas for a safe and natural solution for better sleep habits.

How Can Chiropractic Help?

After a spinal examination, Dr. Jeff Vitenas will gently adjust the spine, removing misalignments. These misalignments can cause nerve interference that keeps the body from functioning properly, causing issues such as asthma, insomnia, or other problems that affect sleep. Restoring the spine to proper alignment can improve nerve communication and address the root cause of issues causing sleeplessness. In a case study involving a bright but sometimes hyperactive boy that had trouble sleeping at night, chiropractic care offered relief. After two years of consistent chiropractic care, he reported sleep patterns that were healthy and age appropriate.
