Sleep is important for the replenishment and recovery of all our body systems. It is a problem when sleep is disrupted or shortened consistently.
We often see patients in our North Oakville Physio, Massage, Acupuncture and Foot clinic where sleep is disrupted by pain. We help people with their pain to help them sleep better. This may mean education on sleep positioning or exercises before bed.
Benefits of a good nights sleep:
- Increased concentration and productivity. There are studies that show that with consistently less sleep, people feel similar to how they would with alcohol intoxication. People who sleep well are able to concentrate more effectively and have increased memory.
- Maximize physical performance (physical work, sports, dance, etc). Improved speed, accuracy and recovery time.
- Injury recovery
- Decreased risk of stroke and heart disease
7 to 8 hours of good sleep is considered sufficient.
If pain is impacting your sleep, our North Oakville Physiotherapists and Massage Therapists can help provide you relief and advice to increase your sleep quality. Yoga therapy is another supplementary therapy to help with pain and to help calm the nervous system to help with pain.
