Sleep is a fickle friend
There are so many barriers to sleep: internal and external stressors, physical and mental disturbances and chemical imbalances all play a part in keeping us from getting the sleep we deserve. But sleep is so essential to our experience that we cannot simply accept lack of sleep and get on with it. Poor sleep health is linked to depression, diabetes, obesity, heart disease and a host of other maladies. At Holmes Chiropractic, we are making a better night’s sleep a priority for the Houston community. We know that more quality sleep makes life easier. It helps with:
- Mental acuity
- Improved immune functioning
- Better memory
- Perform better physically
- Improved digestion
- Lowers the risk of early death.
Creating a fearless inventory of what keeps us from sleeping
It is of the utmost importance to exercise control over the factors that are within your control. From reducing screen time before bed to cutting down on caffeine, you need to be honest about the factors that contribute to your sleep deprivation. As you create this inventory of sleep-antagonists, you may also find that you need help managing things like physical pain and mental stress.
At Holmes Chiropractic, we are dedicated to getting you the best possible night’s sleep. We work with you to identify your sleep habits and patterns and make sure your body is ready to reap all the benefits of a good night’s sleep.
Chronic back pain is a signal contributor to lost sleep. At our office in Houston, we help you get to the bottom of your back pain so that you can sleep easier. With spinal adjustments and rehabilitative therapy, we restore your spine to its proper alignment and remove nerve impingement. We then help you put preventive measures in place during the day to reduce pain; help you to keep active to ward off pain; and address back pain in the bed by changing the way you sleep to account for your pain.
