NREM sleep, or Non-REM sleep, is the first part of your sleep cycle and includes three stages.
Non-REM sleep contributes to your overall health since during these stages, your body build muscle and bone, repairs and regenerates tissue, and strengthens your immune system. As you age, you don’t get as much NREM sleep.
Many people aren’t aware that chiropractic care can be used to improve your sleep cycle. Chiropractic care improves blood flow in the nervous system and it helps correct misalignment or subluxations in the spine. Subluxations can lead to a stress response that can put your body out of balance and as a result, getting a good nights sleep is difficult. Poor sleep can also be attributed to back pain, breathing problems, and restless leg syndrome. Regular visits to a chiropractic can help improve these symptoms you’re experiencing.

Sleep disturbance can be caused by a number of factors such as eating too much before bed, drinking caffeine or alcohol before bedtime, or a bedroom setting that doesn’t promote a relaxing environment (not dark enough, noisy…etc.). Joint and muscle pain can also contribute to sleep disturbances since it may affect your ability to feel relaxed in bed. Being consistent with good sleeping habits is one way to help you get a good night’s sleep.
