How Chiropractic Services Help Improve Health and Wellness
The manifestation of a number of chronic health conditions is the direct result of sleep deprivation. According to Healthy Sleep which is a resource from the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School, sleep deprivation is at the core of diseases like hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. In addition, sleep deprivation affects the way the immune system functions and is closely associated with mood disorders.
Here in our office, the inability of our patients to acquire a full eight hours of sleep seriously, as we know that the life expectancy of people who get five hours of sleep or less is reduced by 15 percent. Our chiropractic care team use a number of chiropractic services to address sleep deprivation. Our chiropractor uses adjustments to correct subluxations in the spinal column to help relax the patient and remove the stress off of the disc. Adjustments also pain, they reduce inflammation and allow for better communication between the nerves in the spine and the brain to communicate more effectively.
