In this weeks video health tip, Dr. Matthew Davis, director of Crossroads Chiropractic, takes a look at the benefits of chiropractic adjustments for treating patients with insomnia.
Sleep is an important part of our body’s ability to function optimally. Our body has the ability to heal and grow while we sleep. Many people find themselves not getting an adequate amount of sleep or even may suffer from the ability to sleep at all, which is known as insomnia.
A recent paper published in the Journal of Sleep Medicine & Disorders suggested that some insomnia cases could be caused by complex chemical interactions in the brain resulting from subluxation.
When you suffer from a pinched nerve or, subluxation, this causes interference with the nervous system, which is responsible for controlling all of our body functions.
This leads us to believe that the correction of subluxations through a chiropractic adjustment may be one of many appropriate treatments for patients with insomnia.
By addressing the subluxation (pinched nerve), chiropractic adjustments help correct the brain’s dopamine and serotonin levels, thereby providing possible relief from insomnia.
Adjustments can also address insomnia by improving other aspects of nervous system functioning, such as heart rate variability.
Along with adjustments, other treatments and lifestyle interventions may promote healthy sleep including reducing caffeine and sugar intake and adding stress management techniques, such as exercise, meditation or yoga.
