Chronic Pain? Get better sleep!

I think most of us have heard we need the proper amount of sleep in order to feel at our best. However did you know that poor sleep can also contribute to chronic pain? A review of studies including over 61,000 participants arrived at a disturbing conclusion, in that, the impact of sleep on pain may be more significant than the impact of pain on sleep. In fact, the report states that the those suffering from poor quality of sleep and/or quantity of sleep may experience an increase of chronic pain by a factor of two or three compared to those that sleep well. Poor sleep is associated with impaired response to bacterial infections, viruses, poor physical functioning, increased inflammation, higher cortisol levels, and other markers of pain, fatigue and overall compromised health..!!
