How Sleep Affects Health & How Chiropractic Can Help

At Reza Chiropractic of St. Petersburg, we know that there are many people today that struggle with insomnia and other sleep-related issues. And this is a huge problem, not just for your mood, but for your health as well! Typically, if you are having trouble falling or staying asleep at night, there might be something else going on, such as anxiety, depression, stress, or acute/chronic pain. But sometimes it can be attributed to seemingly mundane things, like drinking caffeine in the morning.

When your circadian rhythms are disrupted, they affect your brain’s chemistry. At Reza Chiropractic, we have plenty of St. Petersburg residents come into our office complaining about all the many ways in which their inability to sleep is affecting them in their day to day lives, such as:

  • Slower response times
  • Increased irritability
  • Poor memory
  • Weakened immune system
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased concentration and focus

Obviously, if you are suffering from any or all of these symptoms, you are not going to be living a very happy or healthy life. But when you have a weakened immune system, it is especially troubling because this puts you at risk for a multitude of illnesses and diseases. But be careful about the approach you take when trying to fix your sleeping problems. Many people turn to pharmaceutical drugs and prescription medications to help them fall asleep, but—in addition to being overly expensive, sometimes difficult to obtain, and potentially addicting—they often come with a long list of harmful and negative side effects.

At Reza Chiropractic of St. Petersburg, we believe in getting to the route of the problem, not just masking the symptoms. Our safe, natural, holistic approach to healing offers long-term solutions, not just temporary “quick fixes.” So if you are suffering from insomnia, or another disorder related to sleep, don’t hesitate to give us a call today to make an appointment. During your exam not only will we give you a postural screening to see if there are any subluxations in your spine, which could be causing your nerves to be compressed, but we will also give you a spinal adjustment that can significantly help improve your quality—and frequency—of sleep!

The adjustments we offer at Reza Chiropractic work to help improve blood flow and the overall functioning of your central nervous system. To learn more information, or to schedule an appointment at our St. Petersburg office, give us a call today!
