If you are like many Americans, then you don’t get enough sleep or the sleep you do get isn’t providing the restorative and rejuvenating rest you need to feel energized and ready to tackle the day. You may be wondering whether you are dealing with a sleep disorder or whether the bad habits you have may be playing into your nightly rest.
Getting quality sleep is necessary not just for your physical health but your mental wellbeing. Poor sleep can really take a toll on you and can even increase your chances of developing certain chronic health issues such as diabetes or heart disease. Of course, if you want to get to the bottom of your sleep issues without the use of medication then you may want to talk to an osteopath.
Some people are a bundle of nervous energy, which can cause an over-stimulated nervous system. Through osteopathic treatments and techniques we can help to reduce tension and provide your body with the relaxation and relief it needs from its constantly overactive state. In fact, there are some health issues or even problems within certain systems of the body that may have you waking up in the middle of the night. By providing this complementary therapy, we can improve how the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems function to promote better and more restorative sleep.
If you find that you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep because of chronic pain then an osteopath may also be the answer you’ve been looking for. Millions of Americans deal with some chronic form of pain. If you are dealing with migraines, back pain, arthritis or spinal misalignments then you may find it difficult to get comfortable. Osteopathic manipulative treatment could be the answer you’ve been looking for to reduce or even eliminate your pain.
If you toss and turn all night in pain then an osteopath can help provide manual therapy to improve how the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints of the body function to promote faster healing, reduce pain and inflammation and make sleeping a bit easier. Not getting enough sleep can increase pain and make it difficult for your body to heal. Through osteopathic treatments, we can provide a non-medical alternative for treating your symptoms to get you on a better sleep schedule.
If you battle insomnia or other sleep problems, then it’s time you sat down and talked with an osteopath to find out how we can help you finally get the quality sleep you deserve.
