As evidence continues to mount showing the health benefits (both mental and physical) of getting sufficient amounts of quality sleep, many people are turning to chiropractors for help. To begin with, it can prove beneficial to have a discussion and get recommendations about appropriate sleeping positions that may help improve sleep. For those who experience back pain in particular, it is best to sleep on one’s back to help maintain the natural curve of the spine. When lying in bed, be sure that head, shoulders, and hips are in alignment and that the back is adequately supported. Because this sleeping position often causes snoring, sleeping on one’s side (with a pillow positioned between the knees) is an adequate alternative. Chiropractic visits are covered by most health insurance plans, so there’s no harm in finding out whether the treatment works for you- especially if you’re someone who prefers natural treatments to medication. Your physician may be able to refer you to a chiropractor who is properly trained and licensed. To schedule an appointment, please call our clinic at 860-621-2225.
