HOW DOES CHRONIC PAIN AFFECT YOUR SLEEP?
Have you been struggling with restless nights due to persistent pain? Do you wake up uncomfortable in the middle of the night? Does simply falling asleep pose problems, with aches and pains following every move you make? If so, you are not alone. According to the 2015 Sleep in AmericaTM Poll, 21% of Americans suffer from chronic pain, which can have significant adverse effects on sleep patterns. If your pain has been keeping you up at night, contact Marketplace PT today. Why pain impacts sleep: Pain is strongly correlated with two large concerns in regard to general wellness: stress and poor health. These concerns are also strongly correlated with abnormal sleeping patterns, resulting in shorter sleep durations and decreased quality of sleep. When pain is combined with stress and poor health, you create a trifecta of distress on your body, which can make it difficult to achieve a healthy and full REM cycle every
night. In fact, 1 in 4 people with a chronic pain condition are also diagnosed with a sleeping disorder by a doctor. Those suffering from chronic pain lose an average of 42 minutes of sleep per night – some even higher than that. In the same poll, 65% of Americans who were not experiencing chronic pain reported having “good” or “very good” sleep quality, while only 37% of Americans who were experiencing chronic pain reported similar results. In addition, 23% of the chronic pain sufferers also reported higher levels of stress. Sleep is an essential factor in overall health and wellness. It is crucial to the ways in which our bodies function day after day. When pain results in issues with sleep, your daily life can be greatly impacted. Many people with chronic pain report that their sleeping abnormalities have interfered with work, activities, relationships, mood, and overall enjoyment of life.
