Sciatica | Is Sciatica Causing You to Lose Sleep?

Sciatica | We all know the importance of a good night’s rest. Quality sleep makes it possible to function properly and perform as expected the next day. Unbeknownst to most, pain is an essential function of the body. However, it can cause a loss of sleep which is also an important function of the body.

Seeking treatment from a licensed provider can help you to acquire a good night’s rest. Pain in the body can make it hard to find a comfortable resting position. Sciatica can be so painful that you won’t be able to lay down at all. Knee pain may prevent you from finding a comfortable position to sleep in at all. Shoulder pain or pain in any of the large joints can interrupt a night’s sleep. This loss of sleep can cause an imbalance in your health.
