We Physiotherapists at Sararehab look at the body as a whole in order to determine why you are not getting as restful a night as you need. After asking questions to determine if there are any external factors such as stress or worry causing issues with sleep, we can examine a patient physically to make sure their posture isn’t hindering their rest. It’s also a good idea to develop sleep routine instead of turning the television off and going straight to bed, or worse – sitting in bed with your phone – you should start winding down about an hour before you intend to sleep. You could also engage in relaxation exercises throughout the day in order to combat the risk of stress building up.
