One of the most common complaints of American adults is trouble sleeping. We get far less sleep than we need, resulting in excessive fatigue, poor concentration, and greater risk of illness, just to name a few.

Neurologically-based chiropractic care can make a huge difference in your overall sleep quality.

There is a direct link between sleep disorders and chronic pain. Chronic pain can actually make sleep disorders worse and even create new ones. For example, people struggling with neck and back pain are more likely to have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep for a full night’s rest. These individuals are also more likely to stay in the more shallow stages of sleep, instead of the deeper, healing stages. This means they can suffer from sleep deprivation, even if they’ve slept for the recommended 8 hours.

Chronic Pain & Sleep Disorders

For optimal human productivity and overall health, it is essential you obtain a sufficient amount of sleep. This is more than just resting your head on a pillow and shutting your eyes for 8 hours. You MUST hit deep sleep cycles in which healing and body restoration occur. If you are not getting adequate ZZZ’s in the necessary sleep cycles, then you are not in fact getting adequate sleep, thus impacting your physiological and cognitive capabilities.

As neurologically-based chiropractors in West Des Moines, the cognitive impact of sleep deprivation is what we are most concerned about. We focus our attention on how to keep your body healthy from the inside out.

Regular chiropractic care helps you obtain sufficient restful sleep, by detecting, analyzing and correcting sources of spinal dysfunction and nerve interference. These dysfunctions are often what disrupts healthy sleep patterns in the first place. By correcting these neurological issues and nerve irritability, you are able to sleep comfortably and consistently moving your way through a healthy sleep cycle.

Our goal is to help you achieve the healthiest life possible, which includes healthy sleep patterns.

Finding The Right Mattress

Not every mattress is created equal for your spine. A person’s weight, sleeping position, body type and spinal health all play an important role into whether a mattress is the right fit for them.

Here are some general guidelines for finding the perfect mattress for your spine:

  • Support: A great mattress keeps your body on a flat plane, preventing parts of the body from being lower or higher than the rest. Hard mattresses tend to push against the spine, while soft mattresses don’t offer enough support. A medium firmness is ideal for most sleepers.
  • Comfortability: How well does your mattress conform to the contours of your body? Lack of comfortability results in at least one part of the body being unsupported and feeling more pressure than other parts. This causes significant discomfort and pain.

More often than not, the type of mattress you are looking for depends on what sleep position you favor. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you select the best mattress for your sleep position:

  • Back Sleepers: A medium firm mattress is ideal for this type of sleeper. You want a mattress that is firm enough to support your lower back and soft enough to contour to your spine.
  • Side Sleepers: A mattress with a slight softness is necessary to cushion the shoulders and hips.
  • Stomach Sleepers: Many suffering from back pain are stomach sleepers, which is why we highly discourage people from sleeping on their stomachs, if possible.
  • Combination Sleepers: A memory foam mattress, which has high motion isolation is recommended for sleepers who tend to move around quite a bit.

In this eBook, we are going to explore in more depth this connection between chronic pain and sleep disorders, as well as, how not all mattresses are created equal.

Neurologically-Based Chiropractic Treatments & Sleep Disorders

Many people don’t realize the importance of chiropractic care in treating sleep disorders, however, more often than not sleep issues and chronic pain are closely linked.

As a neurologically-based chiropractic practice, we focus on your spine, correcting any misalignments that are present and improving the spine’s overall health. How does this impact your sleep? It means that the pain and tension built up in the spine can be released creating a higher degree of comfort. The more comfortable you are, the easier it is for the body to relax and fall into a healthy sleep cycle.

A second more complex layer of connection between chiropractic treatments and sleep disturbances is the enhanced performance of the body’s central nervous system.

The nervous system is the master control panel for the body, allowing efficient function of the body. The more efficient your body functions, the less wasted energy and the easier it is for your body and mind to wind down and fall asleep.

Not only can we diagnose and treat spinal problems to relieve discomfort, but as chiropractors, we can also offer suggestions on how to get better sleep. We are able to tell you which sleep position is best for you (and your spine) as well as whether a chiropractic pillow or more supportive mattress is necessary to get you back on track to a healthy sleep pattern.

Chiropractic care is a natural and effective method for treating many conditions, even those caused by sleep deprivation or sleep issues.
