Sleep Correction in Robina on the Gold Coast

couple on bed sleep apnoeaDo you find it challenging to power down and get the restorative sleep you need? Maybe you frequently wake up in the middle of the night and, as a result, wake up feeling unrefreshed.

Getting a good night’s sleep doesn’t just mean going to bed and waking up at specific times. It’s also important to pay attention to sleep position, eat a balanced diet and have a good sleep routine. In addition, regular chiropractic adjustments may help foster sound slumber.

Chiropractic Care & Sleep Positions

How is chiropractic helpful? Chiropractic adjustments restore balance to your nervous system, helping your body transition into a state of rest, thus improving your sleep quality.

Again, it’s important to be mindful of your sleep position, which will vary from person to person. We recommend coming into the practice so Dr Laura Priestley (Chiropractor) can provide an assessment. According to Laura, sleeping on your stomach is the worst position you can sleep in. That’s because your neck is twisted for the whole night; sleeping on your side or your back is generally better than the stomach.

Healthy Nighttime Routine: More Than Just Bedtimes

According to the lead sleep researcher at Harvard University, it’s not just about going to bed and waking up at the same time every day; what’s more important is keeping your waking time within an hour on the weekend as well.

This steady routine helps your hormones (the accelerator and the brakes) work more efficiently, aiding the body’s healing processes during sleep. Limiting light exposure and powering down digital devices two hours before bedtime are part of this healthy sleep regimen.

The Right Pillow Is Key

If you sleep on a too-soft or unsupportive pillow your sleep may suffer. Choosing the right pillow is just as important. Chiropractic pillows, particularly adjustable ones, are highly recommended. The correct pillow density should complement your mattress density; a higher pillow for a foam mattress and a softer pillow for a softer mattress.

Meal Times Matter

Diet, too, plays a significant role in sleep quality. Avoid heavy meals two hours before bedtime, as it helps slow down your heart rate, improving sleep quality and efficiency.
