Adults Aren’t The Only Ones Who Are Struggling To Sleep
It’s no surprise that poor sleep or lack of sleep contributes other symptoms of poor health. And since adult insomnia costs an estimated $14 billion dollars a year in the U.S., it’s clear that we are not sleeping well. Unfortunately, many children are also suffering from poor sleep quality and the results are leading to hyperactivity, mood disturbances, memory problems, and more.
Chiropractic Care Helps Improve Sleep
The good news is, chiropractic care has been effective in improving the sleep quality of children. Recently, a team of researchers studied a 3-year old who was waking several times each night and also holding his breath. An exam found several subluxations. After just one month of gentle chiropractic care, the mother reported the boy had stopped snoring, was no longer holding his breathe and was sleeping through the entire night.
A similar study followed a 12-month old who would wake seven to eight times each night. After just one chiropractic adjustment, he slept soundly for seven hours. After six months of care, the child was described as a healthy toddler with normal sleeping habits.
