As unfortunate as it may be, a good night’s rest is an elusive dream for many adults suffering from a sleep disorder.
Sadly, even heading to bed early doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the necessary hours of sleep for optimal health. This may be due to a sagging mattress, the use of the wrong pillow, a racing mind, stress, various aches and pains, and more; which can all prevent a truly restful sleep.
But upper cervical chiropractic care at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia can help.
Restoring Good Sleep Conditions With Proper Cervical Spine Alignment
Your brain stem is vulnerable to pinching, whether it be from injury or just resting on the wrong pillow.
Our doctors at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia can restore correct alignment and advise you on the right pillow that will allow you to maintain the proper neck posture as you sleep, which will reduce tossing, turning and waking up with neck pain.
How Natural Pain Relief Can Lead To Improved Sleep
If your neck is not aligned properly, this means your nerves are being pinched, which can cause dysfunction all over the body and prevent you from sliding effortlessly into the REM sleep your mind and body so desperately need in order to heal and restore good health.
Our chiropractic team can diagnose a patient’s specific cervical posture issues that cause aches and pains and then resolve them through the use of gentle upper cervical chiropractic adjustments, which provide pain relief so they can comfortably drift off to sleep.
Cervical Spine Alignment is Tied Directly to Sleep
Recent studies prove that the parafacial zone in the brain stem seems to regulate what is known as gamma-hydroxbuyrate (or GABA), which is a critical neurochemical that can induce healthy sleep.
Our upper cervical chiropractors can remove any brain stem interference, naturally correcting malfunctions and enabling patients to enjoy the benefits of healthier sleep. These benefits include a better state of focused relaxation while awake and lower blood pressure.
While you’re at home, it’s highly important to prepare yourself for a good night’s sleep as well, this includes:
Getting the right pillow that allows you to keep your neck in a neutral position, whether you are a side sleeper or sleep on your back.
Creating a soothing bedtime ritual, such as dimmed lights, soft music, and a warm bath. In other words, anything that puts you in a calm state of mind.
Paying attention to proper nutrition by sticking to a regular meal time. By doing so, you are neither too hungry, nor too full at bedtime. Additionally, you should never drink too close to bedtime in order to prevent overnight trips to the bathroom, which can disrupt restful sleep..
