Chiropractic Care and Sleep Getting enough sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy body. According to the CDC, adults who get less than 7 hours of sleep are more likely to report 10 chronic health conditions than those who do get enough sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, be sure to listen to today’s new episode to hear about chiropractic care and sleep, what type of pillow to sleep on, how to know if your mattress is good or bad, & more! Dr. Ryan mentions that one of the most frequently mentioned benefits of getting regular chiropractic adjustments is improved sleep. They tell a story of a family with twin babies who before chiropractic care never slept more than 4 hours a night, but after getting adjusted slept a full 8 hours.

Your body heals when you sleep – therefore it’s crucial you have a healthy sleeping environment to heal optimally. If you find yourself waking up sore or in pain pretty regularly, consider your mattress, pillow, or position you’re sleeping.
