The Dalai Lama says that sleep is the best meditation
We would like to further point out that sleep is also one of the best medications. It allows for the rest and repair of every cell in the body, for the recharging of essential systems and for the preparation for body and mind to face another day. Sleep is no joke; while you (hopefully) rest in comfort, your body is hard at work. So it is perhaps a cruel twist of fate that something so important can, for some people, be so hard to come by. As an office of chiropractic, we focus on improving quality and quantity of sleep by treating pain.
How does subluxation affect sleep?
Subluxation affects sleep in myriad ways but we have narrowed it down to the following:
- It contributes to nerve compression: not only causing pain, but interfering with smooth nervous system functioning.
- It stunts circulation: reducing oxygen flow to the brain.
- Subluxation is often caused by muscle tension which is painful in itself.
- All of these factors can cause pain of varying degrees that adds to stress and inhibits sleep.
Our idea is that if we can reverse subluxation and treat your pain at its source, we can make positive improvements in your sleep life.
