Why sleep is good for you?
Did you know we spend about a third of our lives asleep. Sleep is essential, alongside eating and breathing and plays a vital role in good health and well-being. One in three of us suffers from poor sleep and as we age the prevalence of sleep disorders increases.
Sleep and health are strongly related. By getting enough good quality sleep helps to protect our mental health, physical health, quality of life and safety.
As an osteopath, sleep pattern is one of the things we look at with musculoskeletal issues as it is one of the most integral components for the body’s healing processes. As sleep is a habit, by reviewing and addressing behaviours that may have been adopted, it will hopefully help to improve your sleeping habits and help you to be more productive throughout the day.
If you have concerns about the quantity or quality of your sleep, please feel free to discuss it at your next appointment with me.
