Insomnia and Sleep Issues
Did you know approximately one in four American workers suffers with insomnia? Insomnia is a serious problem because many important systems in our body, including our kidneys, digestion tract, and immune system are linked with sleep cycles. Sleep is a masterpiece of the nervous system because it is very well coordinated by the brain and brainstem, and as many of us know, we can’t operate without sleep! The problem is getting deep, high quality sleep that truly allows our system to refresh. Misalignments in the neck, especially the upper neck, can have a detrimental effect on our circadian rhythm.
Dr. Bagley herself has said,
“Prior to starting upper cervical care it would take me hours to fall asleep each night, and every morning I felt more tired than when I went to bed. My insomnia problems started in childhood and affected every aspect of my life from school to family relationships. Now, I can fall asleep in less than 10 minutes every night and I wake up refreshed.”
How Does Chiropractic Care Help You Sleep Better?
Dr. Bagley has dedicated her life to becoming an expert in figuring out how chiropractic care can help treat those suffering from poor sleep. She will do a complete history to find out why your sleep is being affected and check for other problems. Treatment for insomnia includes chiropractic care and wellness adjustments, which help your body relax by improving blood flow and correcting any dislocations in the spine. These misalignments can often cause our bodies to create a constant stress response, which puts the body out of balance and prevents restful sleep. Dr. Bagley will work to correct these, as well as make recommendations on other lifestyle changes you can make to get a good night’s sleep.
