When our nervous systems are overly stressed, sleep can become very challenging. No one likes to toss and turn all night or wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to fall back asleep.
It can be discouraging when you feel you have tried everything to help get some good rest and you are still groggy and tired the next day. No parent loves when their toddler or older child has trouble falling asleep, wakes up almost every night or has consistent nightmares.It can be frustrating when you have read all the parenting blogs and books on sleep, have established a consistent bed time routine, tried all the supplements, and maybe even resorted to sleep training your child and they still don’t get the sleep they need. Our chiropractic approach helps to promote healthy sleep patterns by switching the central nervous system out of FIGHT OR FLIGHT mode and into REST + DIGEST mode. The gentle adjustments we provide help to calm the brain and create balance from the inside out. We measure this internal response throughout care with heart rate variability testing to make sure you are truly moving out of stress mode and into restoration mode. Better sleep is often one of the first changes our patients notice when they commit to their consistent restorative care recommendations.
When you and your children’s central nervous systems are calm and balanced — you can all fall asleep easier, stay asleep, and fully enter into the rhythmic sleep patterns that are so important for optimal restoration, healing, growth and development. The reality is — is that there will always be stressors in our lives that can throw off our inner peace and cause stress + tension in our bodies — but chiropractic care is an amazing, natural and effective part of a healthy lifestyle that can help us reset and reconnect our brains and bodies so that we can all get the much needed and well-deserved rest we all need!
