Sleep Loss Heightens Pain Sensitivity and Dulls Brain’s Painkilling Response

new research

It is well known that chiropractic care will decrease pain symptoms (and others). It is equally well known that once you have less pain, you sleep better. Now researchers are looking more closely at that connection: you are going to feel pain more when you get less sleep.

For patients with neck pain, back pain and headaches, the cycle usually goes like this: first less pain; then more and better sleep; then better energy levels; then higher levels of activity.

The message from this new research is clear: get out of pain; get your sleep. Get your sleep and get out of pain.

The message of chiropractic care is also clear. We can help!
