Says American National Sleep Organisation

If getting to sleep is currently difficult due to the cold or an inability to get comfortable, then seeing your family chiropractor won’t just soothe your sleepless nights — it may also improve the quality of your shuteye, according to the US National Sleep Foundation.

Founded in 1990, the non-profit National Sleep Foundation promotes public understanding of sleep and sleep disorders. It says: `While chiropractors generally aren’t thought of as being experts on sleep issues... 


one-third of people who have a chiropractic adjustment report that they experience immediate sleep improvement[1],[2].’


As well as assessing the spine and nervous system to relieve discomfort and improve well-being, a Chiropractor has plenty of suggestions for getting better sleep.


A New Zealand study showed that nearly half of the people surveyed reported improved sleep after a programme of chiropractic care.[3]


The National Sleep Foundation also points out that parents might consider chiropractic care for children with sleep difficulties given that one in four babies has sleep troubles.

It references research which suggests...


40 percent of infants experience deeper sleep after just one session with a chiropractor[4].


It goes without saying that once your baby is sleeping well, you’ll get a better night’s sleep too. 

A recently published study reporting the use of chiropractic in the USA[5] found a substantial proportion of US adults used chiropractic services along with their regular medical care over the past 12 months, and subsequently reported associated positive outcomes for overall well-being and/or specific health problems.’ 

As a healthcare practitioner in Hawke's Bay the past 6 years it is our mission to inform, educate and inspire people to better their health. To prevent pain and disability by improving their Structure, addressing spinal problems and engaging in other health-promoting activities. We do this through Blog posts as well as through our Live Seminars (Check them out HERE)
