Have you given much thought to the impact of sleep on your patient’s pain, recovery, and overall health? Sleep is ammunition for your brain and is vital for our overall health, safety, well-being, and performance. Yet, only 70% of U.S. adults and only 23% of Soldiers get adequate sleep. Sleep is the only time during which the brain is able to clean out toxic and metabolic waste. Sleep improves performance while a lack of sleep increases your risk for injury. Poor sleep is associated with chronic pain, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Adequate sleep enables muscle growth, tissue repair, hormone synthesis, and helps prevent lower pain thresholds. Did you know that one’s physical, cognitive, and emotional performance will degrade after 19 straight hours of being awake, or with less than 5 hours of nightly sleep over a 5-day period? Insufficient sleep can quickly result in a 20% cognitive decline equivalent to a blood alcohol level of 0.08. Have you ever evaluated your Sleep IQ?
