We all love our sleep. Who doesn't look forward to hopping into bed at night after a tough day at work. The best way to achieve a great night’s sleep, recommended to include 7-9 hours, is to have a good chiropractic approved supportive mattress and pillow.If your mattress is too soft, too hard, or lumpy it puts abnormal stresses on different joints throughout the spine. As a result over time, those joints will degenerate. Similarly, if your pillow is too soft or flat it causes the neck to side bend and more pressure is placed on the muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints of the lower neck, causing wear and tear in the joints and can lead to nerve damage.

A good night’s sleep is vitally important to allow us to function at optimum performance and deal with our busy life schedules. A restless night’s sleep leads to us feeling tired, agitated and unable to concentrate the next day. A number of restless nights’ sleep can lead to poor eating habits, too much caffeine, irritable moods, weight gain, depression and so on. Patients with poor sleeping habits take longer to heal than those who sleep well.
