Sleep is needed for your body to function properly…
Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it, this can be caused by many different problems.
Keeping your body in shape, dieting, removing caffeine, and developing a good lifestyle can correct these problems. Everyone is different, and Pueblo West Chiropractic Center can help.
There are stages in your sleep that your body must go through to achieve
a good night sleep.
- Light sleep and relaxation of the muscles. (Transition to sleep). Can be awakened easily.
- Activity in the brain slows and eye movement stops. Your body is preparing for deep sleep.
- Brains waves become slow (delta waves) and small quick waves occur. Also referred to as deep sleep.
- (REM) Rapid Eye Movement – dreams occur. Usually, REM sleep happens 90 minutes after you fall asleep
This cycles over and over throughout the night.
Each sleep cycle usually takes about an hour and a half to complete.
During the deep stages of NREM sleep, the body repairs and regrows tissues, builds bone and muscle, and strengthens the immune system. Sleep is needed for your body to function properly, so take care of yourself and do what it takes to achieve a good night sleep.
