How Chiropractic can help you sleep better

Sleeping problems? Do you usually wake up frequently? If you also suffer from insomnia, keep reading, we explain how chiropractic can help you.

The WHO (World Health Organization) recommends sleeping about 8 hours a day (in the case of adolescents and children the hours are more). In Spain, the average is 6 hours a day. 

Correcting this problem is important for the quality of life of the person who suffers from it, since the lack of rest affects mood, character, spirit, concentration, memory, etc. Likewise, it is essential to maintain good physical and mental health. By sleeping well, the body repairs tissue and recovers.

Studies even show that those who suffer from insomnia can develop hypertension, diabetes, anxiety, heart attacks, or even Alzheimer's, among others.

What are the benefits of a good rest?

Sleeping well is good for us, we all agree. But in what way?

  • Increases resistance and physical recovery
  • Protects you from diabetes: little or bad sleep causes us to lose the ability to regulate blood sugar.
  • Sleeping well improves attention. Prolonged lack of sleep can cause ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) in children.
  • Allows us to build muscle more easily
  • Sleeping well protects the heart. Insomnia increases the presence of stress, which in turn increases blood pressure, heart rate and also cholesterol.
  • Sleeping well increases creativity
  • Improves the immune system. During sleeping hours our immune system regenerates, to be able to effectively fight against toxins and germs.
  • It helps you prevent migraines and other headaches.
  • You will be more productive at work. Tiredness does not allow us to concentrate and makes us more irritable, which will affect our daily life.
  • You will feel less irritated

How can chiropractic help you with insomnia?

Insomnia normally results from a malfunction of the nervous system. And this is where chiropractic intervenes. 

Our nervous system is divided into two parts:

  • Sympathetic (accelerator), which is responsible for keeping our body active.
  • Parasympathetic (brake), responsible for our rest and relaxation.

Suffering from insomnia indicates a dysfunction in the body adapting between these two states. 

Thechiropractic care helps release the nervous system, which stop always being alert and compressed. Allowing you to balance the two parts of the nervous system so that you can relax and enjoy a restful sleep throughout the night.
