We all feel the negative effects of sleeplessness from time to time, but the health benefits of regular good sleep may be even more important than we realize. Good sleep can help us get sick less often, stay at a healthy weight, lower the risk of serious health problems like diabetes and heart disease, reduce stress and improve mood, think more clearly, get along better with people, make good decisions and avoid accidents. Insomnia caused by pain, or painsomnia, can occur in people with chronic illness, usually after physical exhaustion or stress, and can not only exacerbate pain, but it can bring more symptoms like headaches, anxiety, brainfog and nausea from lack of sleep. APR physiotherapists can help address the underlying causes of chronic pain, and help you establish good sleep hygiene practices so you can start enjoying the benefits of a good night’s sleep!
