If you lay awake night after night knowing that you need sleep to rest and recuperate but are unable to fall asleep, you may benefit from chiropractic care. Not being able to sleep at night can leave you feeling extremely tired and without energy. Restless, sleepless nights are extremely common for many and can cause feelings of frustration and annoyance. We may be left wondering what we can do to get a better night’s sleep. The answer to that may lie with chiropractic care from a Franklin chiropractor.


The Problem with Not Getting Enough Sleep


Men, women, and children alike can suffer from sleeplessness at night. While it may not be a concern if it happens just once in a while, a habit of not getting enough sleep can be harmful to our health. Our bodies require adequate amounts of sleep in order to function at optimal levels of health. Without the necessary sleep, we can’t concentrate, aren’t able to fight off sickness as easily, and experience extreme fatigue. For children, lack of sleep has been associated with developmental delays, stunted brain growth, hyperactivity, and ADD. Adults also have health consequences from lack of sleep, such as poor job performance, inability to concentrate, emotional stresses, and more. Adults can develop insomnia which can affect not only their physical health but also their emotional health. Don’t let sleeplessness get the best of you. Franklin chiropractor Dr. Devan Arman can help.


Chiropractic Care for Sleeplessness


If insomnia has affected your life, it could be a result of poor spinal health. Unbeknownst to many, spinal health is important to overall health. Spinal misalignments can interrupt hormonal production that is essential for getting a good night's sleep. Sleeping aids are only a short-term solution to sleeplessness as problems of sleep can return when you stop taking these medications. They can also cause a slew of harmful side effects. But Franklin chiropractor Dr. Arman provides long-term relief with chiropractic care. Gentle adjustments can remove nerve interference that disrupts the proper function of the body that’s often the root cause of sleeplessness. Improving spinal health ensures your body can function at high levels of health so you can get a great night's sleep and feel well rested each morning.


Research Supports Chiropractic for Sleeplessness


Studies have shown that chiropractic care can work for you! In one case study, a smart yet hyperactive boy suffered from a lack of sleep. After much frustration, his parents sought help through natural, safe chiropractic care. He was able to experience regular sleep habits for his age after undergoing consistent chiropractic care.


If you lie awake at night wondering if there is hope for sleeplessness, rest assured that there is through chiropractic care. For more information about how chiropractic can be beneficial for you and your health, contact Dr. Devan Arman of Unity Chiropractic to schedule a consultation.
