Proper sleep is critical to the body’s over all physical and mental health. This means falling asleep and actually staying asleep without interruptions! Most of our body’s healing and restoration happens while asleep, so other health problems can occur later on if quality, deep sleep isn’t achieved.
Much in a child’s development is affected by adequate rest and sleep. Lack of sleep at any age can result in poor immune health, irritability, brain fog, lack of focus, and less power to heal.
Neurologically based chiropractic helps to remove nerve interference in the spine, allowing the brain and spinal cord to communicate properly for better overall function. One of the first positive changes many practice members notice is better sleep. Better sleep leads to better mood and better quality of life!
“A good night’s sleep is an unexpected benefit of chiropractic!”
I slept great again last night! Wow! I did not realize how poorly I had been sleeping, gradually getting less and less sleep at night and feeling tired throughout the day, until I started sleeping well. Praise God! A good night’s sleep is an unexpected benefit of starting chiropractic care. I’m expecting more ‘hidden’ benefits as I continue with Dr. Micheal Bryan.
