If you just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep, there’s good news with chiropractic care from a Bentonville chiropractor. A lot of times, back pain can cause many to not be able to sleep. Additionally, other health concerns such as headaches or chronic pain can also lead to many sleepless nights, and these can be linked back to spinal health. Sleep is a necessary part of staying healthy, as the body needs to rest and repair itself as we sleep each night. Without proper sleep, we may be more susceptible to sickness, loss of energy, and an inability to concentrate. If you feel drained each day from losing sleep, you can rest easy once again with chiropractic care.
Am I the Only One Who Suffers from Sleeplessness?
While you may feel the only one who seems to have sleepless nights, it’s actually more common that you may think. Approximately 60 million people are affected by insomnia across the country each year. Men, women, and children alike can find it difficult to sleep well at night. Because sleep is such a crucial part of building a healthy body, the growth and development of children can be severely affected by a continuous lack of sleep. For instance, children who don’t have regular, age-appropriate sleeping habits are more likely to suffer from ADD, hyperactivity, or stunted brain growth. For adults, insomnia brings about a whole other set of problems. Without adequate sleep, many find it hard to concentrate, perform well at their jobs, or simply feel exhausted and cranky all the time. It can be hard to know what makes it hard to sleep, but sometimes it can be contributed to sleep apnea or insomnia caused by high levels of stress, anxiety, worry, or depression. Whatever your cause of restless nights, the sooner you address the root cause, the better you will feel. Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela wants to help you do just that.
How Can I Address the Root Cause of Sleeping Difficulties?
Medication is one of the first things people turn to when having trouble sleeping. But the problem is that medication is only a short-term fix. Sleep problems typically return after discontinuing medication use. There are also harmful side effects associated with sleeping aids and other types of medication. Thankfully, there are other options, such as natural and safe chiropractic care. Dr. Tom Niemela of Arbor Vitae Chiropractic uses neurologically-based chiropractic care to get to the root of sleeping difficulties. Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that leads to chaos within the body, often causing insomnia or difficulty sleeping. Gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments can alleviate misalignments to restore function so that the body can get the rest it needs each and every night. For instance, in the case of a five-year-old boy, chiropractic care helped him develop healthy and normal sleeping habits for his age after struggling for a long time to get the sleep his body needed.
You don’t have to stress about losing sleep or being exhausted anymore. Now, you can rest easy with chiropractic care. Call Arbor Vitae Chiropractic today to schedule your appointment.
