HOW PAIN AND SLEEP WORK TOGETHER
Poor sleep can increase pain, lower your ability to fight infection, and increase inflammation. Restful sleep can help decrease chronic pain and improve your mood, which helps you feel more energized, active and social. Good sleep can also reduce your cravings for unhealthy foods.
WHAT CAN MAKE THINGS BETTER
Sleep often improves over time when you change your sleep habits, create a restful environment and reduce your stress. Good quality sleep improves your health and can boost your immune system.
