A good night’s sleep is crucial to a healthy life, including the management of headaches. Inadequate sleep, oversleeping and changes in sleeping patterns are all linked to chronic head aching. There is a positive correlation between headaches and sleep disorders: As headaches become more frequent and severe, sleep disorders increase. The most common sleep disorders linked to headaches are insomnia and sleep apnea, but other disorders such as jaw clenching, restless leg syndrome and narcolepsy are also common. Restful sleep is productive sleep: a boon to your health that can be hard to find in our fast-paced lives. We want to help you sleep better to fix your headaches.
Misalignments, known as subluxations, in the cervical vertebrae are directly related to sleep disorder. Anxiety, stress and depression are leading causes of sleep interruption. Subluxations in the cervical vertebrae can interfere with proper functioning of the limbic system, which is responsible for the regulation of mood. Keeping this region correctly aligned and free of undue pressure on the nerves will go a long way in helping you sleep well. By allowing uninterrupted nerve flow to the surrounding muscles in the neck, painful muscle spasms can be eliminated and muscles will be more relaxed, promoting better sleep.
