Chiropractic Hudson WI 7 Ways To Improve Your Sleep At Night

This chiropractor in Hudson wants to help you sleep better. Insomnia or trouble sleeping can wreak havoc on the body. As a nation, we are not sleeping well. 50-70 million adults in the United States have chronic sleep and wakefulness disorders — that’s according to the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), which is part of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). They’re an operating division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

There are a variety of different reasons why someone may not be getting adequate sleep: whether it’s the everyday stressors keeping us up, or something more serious. Studies well-documented by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine show poor sleep quality and lack of sleep are both linked to chronic health diseases.

When you don’t sleep as much as you should, it’s linked to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, decreased immune function, obesity, depression, and anxiety. Not many people know this, but keeping up with your chiropractic adjustments can actually help you sleep better!

The National Sleep Foundation says in this article that “booking a visit with a chiropractor won’t just soothe your achy back—it may also improve the quality of your shuteye.”

I know that chiropractors aren’t generally thought of as being experts on sleep issues, but the National Sleep Foundation has found that about one-third of people who have a chiropractic adjustment report that they experience immediate sleep improvement.

Chiropractors can diagnose and treat spinal problems to relieve discomfort, which helps you avoid tossing and turning, but there’s also a science behind why getting a chiropractic adjustment helps you sleep better.

But clinicians also go so far as to hypothesize that the right chiropractic adjustment helps treat insomnia by balancing the levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain!

From the Journal of Sleep Medicine & Disorders Central, “The Chiropractic Subluxation and Insomnia: Could there be a Connection”

Here Are More Tips On How To Sleep Better At Night In Hudson:

Increase Bright Light Exposure During The Day

Your body has a natural time-keeping clock known as your circadian rhythm. It affects your brain, body, and hormones, helping you stay awake and telling your body when it’s time to sleep.

Natural sunlight or bright light during the day helps keep your circadian rhythm healthy. This improves daytime energy, as well as nighttime sleep quality and duration.

A similar study published in the National Library of Medicine found in older adults found that 2 hours of bright light exposure during the day increased the amount of sleep by 2 hours and sleep efficiency by 80%.

Maintain A Regular Sleep Schedule

Most people overlook the importance of maintaining a regular sleep schedule, even though most parents know the importance of these for children. It is equally important for adults and children to have a regular sleep schedule.

According to this study published in Scientific Reports, irregularity comes with Cardiometabolic risks.

Shut Off All Electronic Devices At Least 2 Hours Prior To Bed

If you must be on any device, lower the brightness or enable it. the “night-time” mode. The blue light in our phones can trick our brains into thinking it's daytime; even when it is not.

We should unplug in order to unwind from the day. The recommended timeframe is to put your devices away 2-3 hours prior to bed.

Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine, And Alcohol Close To Bedtime

According to this study published in Sleep, avoiding caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol can help you sleep better. Most people think alcohol can help you sleep, but it affects the quality and efficiency of sleep.

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise can help us fall asleep more quickly and improve our quality of sleep.

In a systematic review study in the Journal of Physiotherapy, its conclusion states, “Participation in an exercise training program has moderately positive effects on sleep quality…”

Taking Some Vitamin Supplements Can Help

  • Magnesium: Responsible for over 600 reactions within your body, magnesium can improve relaxation and enhance sleep quality
  • Valerian root: Several studies suggest that valerian can help you fall asleep and improve sleep quality.
  • L-theanine: An amino acid, L-theanine can improve relaxation and sleep.
  • Lavender: A powerful herb with many health benefits, lavender can induce a calming and sedentary effect to improve sleep.
