.Did you know that 40 percent of the population currently suffers with sleeping problems? It isn’t uncommon for Chiropractors to find a misalignment of the first two cervical vertebrae, the atlas and axis, in people who suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia and sleep apnea.
Since a good night’s sleep is one of the most important requirements for complete healing, restoring normal sleep is a desired effect of any Chiropractic care plan. It’s common for many regular Chiropractic clients to see an improvement in sleeping habits within the first week of care, regardless of the condition they come in with. Sleeping better is a common ‘side effect’ when normal alignment is restored at the C1/C2 area, and no drugs have to be involved!
A misaligned atlas or axis can be determined with simple Chiropractic tests like Thermography, Upper Cervical X-Rays or posture analysis. If you know someone suffering with poor sleep, tell them to save their money on a new pillow and have their upper neck evaluated by a chiropractor. If we can get you sleeping better, we can get you healing better.
