Get a Better Night's Sleep, Naturally

3 Ways to Get to Sleep

Sleep deprivation or disruption can leave us feeling unrefreshed and exhausted the next day. While many over-the-counter sleep aids are available to foster slumber, we believe in taking a natural approach. Kids and adults alike need restorative sleep each night to function well and be well.

Establish a Bedtime Routine

It’s a good idea to go to bed the same time each night. When your sleep schedule is consistent, your body will naturally adjust, and you will start to feel tired about the same time each evening. Likewise, aim to get up about the same time each morning.

Choose an Optimal Sleep Position

Sleeping on your back is an ideal position as it reduces disc pressure, so it’s better for the neck and back. Prefer to sleep on your side in a fetal pose? Sleeping in this position keeps the pelvis level and decreases the chance of pain or stiffness in the lower back. The least ideal position is sleeping on your stomach. That’s because doing so can adversely impact digestion and circulation.

Power Down That Blue Light

According to research, exposure to blue light suppresses the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone. TVs, tablets, smartphones, computers and laptops all emit blue light. If we’re spending time using these devices too close to bedtime, it can be difficult to nod off and get good sleep. To avoid exposure to blue light, consider turning off all devices 30-60 minutes before bed. Perhaps read instead with a nice cup of chamomile tea!

Chiropractic care is also beneficial in promoting good sleep. We find that many of our patients experience an improvement in sleep after an adjustment.

    • Dr. Ann-Marie and Dr. Jen have been absolutely amazing! I worked with both of them during my pregnancy and I feel it truly helped me have an easy and fast delivery with my second child. They have been fantastic and I have already continued my sessions with them even after pregnancy.

    • I started getting adjusted at 12 weeks pregnant and continued throughout my pregnancy. To say it was a game changer is an understatement. I felt so good my entire pregnancy and I’d say that’s because of the care at Compass. My baby girl is 3 months and has been getting adjusted since 4 weeks old. We love Compass!!
