Sleep Disturbances

Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it...

Even though you were sleeping all through the night you may be experiencing sleep disturbances. There are over 70 different types of sleep disorders and are all categorized in three areas lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, and excessive sleep.

Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it, this can be caused by many different problems. Keeping your body in shape, dieting correctly, removing caffeine, and developing a good lifestyle can correct these problems. Everyone is different, and your Chiropractor can help.


There are stages in your sleep that your body must go through to achieve a good night sleep, in fact there are 5. This cycles over and over throughout the night.

Stage 1

Light sleep and relaxation of the muscles. (Transition to sleep)
5 to 10 Minutes

Stage 2

Activity in the brain slows and eye movement stops. Your body is preparing for deep sleep.
10 to 15 Minutes

Stage 3

Brains waves become slow (delta waves) and small quick waves occur.
10 to 15 Minutes

Stage 4

Brains waves are all delta wave.
10 to 15 Minutes

Stage 5

(REM) Rapid Eye Movement – dreams occur. Usually, REM sleep happens 90 minutes after you fall asleep
Lasts for 10 Minutes

Each sleep cycle usually takes about an hour and a half to complete. During the deep stages of NREM sleep, the body repairs and regrows tissues, builds bone and muscle, and strengthens the immune system. Sleep is needed for your body to function properly, so take care of yourself and do what it takes to achieve a good night sleep.

General Pain



For nearly eight months, I woke up every day with a pounding headache. Right when I opened my eyes, the migraine started. I tried many remedies but could not relieve my pain permanently. A colleague referred me to Dr. Jessop, and within two weeks, my headache is unnoticeable. There aren't enough ways I can tell you how great he, and the staff at meridian chiropractic are. It's really hard to pick the right words. 'Life changing' is the truest description. Thanks again

I’m in love! A few months ago, I started waking up with headaches almost daily. They weren’t just a headache but had pain going down in to my neck and shoulders. Sometimes the pain would even spread in to my arms and affect my vision. I went to my personal doctor, tried massages, physical therapy, yoga and exercise, even other chiropractors. I did experience a reduction in the discomfort but not completely and it was always temporary. Then I came to Dr. Jessop’s office. From the time I walked in the door I felt a difference. The facility is very comfortable and inviting. I was greeted warmly and felt at ease immediately. Dr. Jessop was very knowledgeable and appeared genuinely concerned. He was not rushed or distracted but took time to find the origination of the headaches then what I have done to treat them so far. Even after my first appointment I felt a marked difference. With the personal nature of the service and the positive results I have been very impressed. My pain and discomfort has reduced drastically and I feel better than I did before the headaches even started. I would recommend Dr. Jessop to anyone with 100% confidence. THANK YOU!!!

Dr. Jessop is so good at what he does! He listens to your concerns and works with you for long term health. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel like a part of their family; Corrine and Nicki are amazing! Just when you think it can’t get any better, you treat yourself to a massage that is simply marvelous! I couldn’t ask for anything better from my Chiropractor!
