Chiropractic and Your Sleep Habits

Sleeping and chiropractic care go hand in hand

Sleeping and chiropractic care are closely linked because chiropractic alleviates back pain, a main reason many people don’t sleep well. Poor sleep makes back pain worse. That’s quite a vicious cycle. Chiropractic improves how efficiently your body operates. Correcting spinal misalignments or subluxations helps your body to release tension, allowing for a more restful sleep. Proper spinal alignment also helps your body use energy more efficiently, so it’s easier to relax at the end of a long day, reinforcing the link between sleeping and chiropractic care.

Mattress and pillow best for chiropractic care

Part of your sleep problem could be that you have a mattress or pillow that does not keep your neck and spine in proper alignment. The mattress or pillow best suited to augment your chiropractic care depends on a lot of factors. It depends on whether your back pain is acute or chronic and where it is located (upper or lower back). Your sleeping position matters, too. Are you a back, side or stomach sleeper? Other factors include your weight, build, physical ailments or past injuries.
