Sleep Better with Chiropractic Care: Aligning Your Spine for the Best Rest

man stretching happy waking upMany people have trouble sleeping well because of improper spinal alignment and nervous system function. This can cause discomfort and make people sleep in positions that aren’t good for them. At Canberra Spine Centre, we know how important a good night’s sleep is and how chiropractic care can help you get it.

How Spinal Health Affects Sleep Quality

When your spine and nervous system are not functioning properly, your body might try to find comfort by sleeping in positions that aren’t ideal. These positions can put more stress on your spine and nervous system, making it harder to get good sleep and feel comfortable.

Chiropractic care addresses these issues by realigning your spine and helping your nervous system work better. Our patients often tell us that their sleep gets better as their spinal health improves.

Keeping Your Spine in Line While You Sleep

To get the best sleep, it’s important to keep your spine straight and maintain its natural curves all night. This means keeping your spine straight when viewed from the front or back and keeping the forward curves in your neck and lower back, as well as the backward curve in your upper back.

To do this, you need the right mattress and pillow. Your mattress should support you well and be replaced every 8-10 years at the least. If not, body impressions in the mattress can contribute to spinal misalignment. Your pillow should also support your head and neck, keeping your spine straight, especially if you sleep on your side.

Personalised Tips for Better Sleep and Less Pain

Our chiropractors give you specific advice to help you sleep better and feel less pain. For example, if you have lower back or hip pain, putting a pillow between your legs or using a long pillow to support your upper arm and leg when sleeping on your side might help.

We know that every patient is different, which is why we give personalised suggestions to help you get the best sleep and spinal health.
