Sleep is Medicine
Sleeplessness has been highlighted as one of the most detrimental factors to well-being
We all know the dichotomy between waking up refreshed after a good night’s sleep and waking up stressed after a bad one. Rest is essential to the functioning of all important systems in the body. As you rest and restore, your body is busy at work repairing damaged cells, rebuilding muscle, recharging the immune system and getting your heart ready for another day of activity. Chronic sleeplessness puts you at risk for a variety of severe health concerns.
So how does chiropractic help you sleep?
Misalignment of the spine is linked to sleep disorders because it causes pain and other symptoms of dysfunction. These turn the gears of stress in your brain which then manifests itself as muscle tension, another painful occurrence that can cause sleeplessness. At our office in Fremont, we believe that proper alignment of the spine is essential to a healthy sleep schedule.
Chiropractic and sleep go hand in hand
Chiropractic, through various modalities, seeks to correct and maintain spinal alignment to keep pain at a minimum and allow for your nervous system to communicate fluidly. In this way, we contribute to an increase in both quality and quantity of sleep. If you are looking to recoup your 8 hours per night of restful sleep, give our office in Fremont a call to schedule an appointment today.
