Insomnia Induced by Chronic Pain Success Story
Loss of Sleep Due to Pain
“Life is the first gift, Love is the second, and Understanding the third.” –Marge Piercy
In my case the understanding part has come late in life. I am a 44 year old mother of 2 small children and only recently have I come to understand that health is ‘central’ to life and love… Without it you are left short. Busy with career and children, I neglected my health for years. Along with a chronic intestinal problem I suffered from neck and backaches and lack of sleep because of constant repositioning.
I began visiting Lark Chiropractic and started and exercise program at the gym to strengthen my back and neck muscles. Exam and x-rays confirmed my poor posture and arthritic. My neck and head were bent forward and shoulders were rolled forward and down.
After treatment regime that included head weights, spinal molding, adjustments, and exercise. I began to see improvement. At 2 months, I am pain free. My posture and mobility are improved and I am sleeping through the night. The work at home is as important as the office visits. I understand that “correcting” spinal problems is a process that will take time. There are no “quick fixes” treatments for these conditions.
I appreciate the patients and grace that this office has shown in the disruption from toddlers. This is the only way I could get the help I needed. Thanks Dr. Sharon!
