Between 50-70 million adults in the United States have a sleep disorder. But did you know that sleep disorders and musculoskeletal pain have an association? Back and Body NJ can treat your sleep disorder with chiropractic care.
Chances are if you are experiencing musculoskeletal pain, then you are probably also experiencing sleep problems, and vice versa. Researchers have scientifically proven that the relationship between sleep and musculoskeletal pain is bi driectional, which makes sense as to why they affect each other,
There have been countless studies done on how chiropractic care affects those with sleep disorders. Let’s take a look at one example: fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia has symptoms like pain in all areas of the body, fatigue, and sleep problems. One specific study done in 2000 showed that fibromyalgia patients who received 30 chiropractic treatments experienced extremely improved symptoms.
Another study recently done proved that for situations where low back and neck pain were affecting sleep, chiropractic care can significantly help with both issues, and is even a number one recommended treatment.
Back and Body NJ has found and even performs so many different treatments for sleep problems depending on what is right for you. Here are some of these treatments:
- Manipulation, mobilization, and soft-tissue work
- Nutritional approaches: melatonin, L-theanine, 5-HTP (5-hydroxy-tryptophan), and valerian root
- Weight management (obesity is a risk factor for insomnia)
- Education/advice on sleeping position, napping, and relaxation methods like breathing exercises, mindful meditation
- No “screen-time” prior to bed
- Pillow placement and size
