Why Does Insomnia Happen?
There can be many different reasons for insomnia. One major theory regarding insomnia is that spinal imbalance can cause problems with the chemical interactions within the brain. Many Lexington KY area patients find that insomnia -- and even chronic insomnia -- is effectively treated with chiropractic adjustment and other natural chiropractic treatments.
Discovering the Best Approach to Insomnia
Our chiropractor in Lexington will work with you to determine the best approach to insomnia treatment. For most patients, a blend of treatment approaches works best. This may be because many insomnia sufferers have other chronic health issues that need to be addressed. For example, patients who have an unhealthy diet, high blood pressure, or high stress in their lives may be more susceptible to insomnia.
The approach to treatment is usually centered around spinal adjustments. These adjustments bring the spine into optimal alignment, help with muscle relaxation, and help with any pain that may be troubling you. With proper spinal alignment, you'll be more comfortable and this allows you to get to sleep -- and stay asleep -- more easily.
Depending on other health conditions that you have, additional treatments may include:
- Heat application
- Ice application
- Non-surgical spinal decompression
- Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
- Ultrasound therapy
- Massage therapy
- Specialized exercises prescribed by Dr. Twit: You'll learn these exercises at Cornerstone Chiropractic Wellness, and then do them at home daily for strengthening and spinal support.
Your insomnia treatment plan may include some or all of these types of care. Many of Dr. Twit's patients find that having regular chiropractic care helps with not only their insomnia but also their total body health and wellness.
