Sleep disturbances from an osteopathic perspective

In today’s society, many people find themselves suffering with some type of sleep disorder or disturbance. Difficulty getting to sleep, waking up frequently, or having poor quality rest are all signs of affected sleep. The cause is often multifactorial, but can be contributed by factors such as stress, anxiety and pain.
