The Importance of Sleep

The Importance of Sleep

The first week of March is sleep awareness week so I wanted to share some information about sleep with you.  Sleep is an extremely important part of a healthy lifestyle.  Most people need 7-8 hours of sleep each night.  Sleep is so important because while we are asleep, our bodies are recovering and repairing any damage from our day.

Chiropractic can help with getting a good night's sleep.  Chiropractic helps to take pressure off the spinal column which allows the nervous system to function more optimally.  Because the nervous system controls everything in the body, a properly functioning nervous system will help to improve sleep.  There are two other tips for getting a good night sleep.  1) Use a good pillow that supports the natural shape of your neck.  2) Sleep on a firm mattress.  A firm mattress supports the spine and helps the body to get better rest.

If you are having trouble sleeping, please call us for a new patient appointment.  Mention this blog and receive your first visit (consultation, exam, and x-rays) for just $20.
