How Chiropractic Can Help You Sleep Better

“It’s important to have adequate rest every day because our bodies do most of the healing while we’re sleeping. We can’t burn the candle at both ends for too long before it starts to have a negative impact on our health—physically and mentally,” said Dr. Goffe.

How Lack of Sleep Hurts Health

Here are some ways that well-being can suffer when we don’t get enough sleep:

  • Impairs mental health
  • Causes brain fog
  • Reduces ability to adapt to life’s stressors
  • Decreases memory
  • Makes weight loss challenging
  • Increases risk of heart disease
  • Leads to poor judgment

Tips for Catching More Zzzs

Ideally, adults should get 7-9 hours of sleep, although everyone is different in terms of their sleep needs. Here are some tips to help get a better night’s sleep:

Get into a routine

It’s a good idea to go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Doing so can reinforce the body’s circadian rhythm, prompting you to go to sleep at the same time each night.

Power down those devices

While our digital devices have many benefits, they have a big drawback: the blue light they emit affects how well we can not only fall asleep, but also stay asleep. We recommend you turn off your devices for at least an hour before bed.

Get adjusted

Patients commonly tell Dr. Goffe how much better they sleep after a chiropractic adjustment. As the nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ in the body, if we have interference, then our body isn’t working as well as it should, and it can’t relax. That’s why getting adjusted is a fantastic way to have a better night’s sleep.

Support sleep with supplements

Dr. Goffe can recommend highly effective nutritional or herbal supplements that can help you get to sleep and stay asleep.
