Are you getting between 7.5 and 9 hours of restful, productive sleep per night? While the number varies per the individual, it is agreed that, to function our best, we need to devote a healthy amount of the 24 hour day to sleep. Sleep, or to extract even further, rest, is one of the most ancient parts of nature and health for humankind. The importance and ramifications of a healthy sleep life are becoming all the more prominent as the human condition of being, “plugged in” at all hours seeks to interfere with our sleep patterns. Keep in mind that healthy sleeping means a longer life.
- Boosts immunity
- Sharpens the mind
- Stabilizes emotions
- Makes it easier to maintain a healthy weight
- Improves athletic performance
The body and brain need to be quiet sometimes. This is becoming harder to come by: insomnia is on the rise, as, inevitably, are prescription and over-the-counter medications which come with unidentifiable side-effects to the individual. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, we want to help you recover your lost sleep life without the benefit of pharmaceuticals. We offer chiropractic adjustment that can address pre-existing physical limitations such as subluxation that could be stopping you from sleeping. We also help to regulate blood circulation and make sure that your body is in the right shape to sleep.
Next on the agenda is working together to create a picture of your pre-sleep routine. And this begins in the morning: how many cups of coffee do you drink during the day? Is it possible to cut out even one? How much television do you watch before bed? Can we limit your electronic exposure before bedtime to help your mind quite down?
Everyone deserves to rest and recoup after a hard day’s work. We are here to help you do that.
Dr. Francis Scorca, D.C.
