You might be able to sleep a little bit better after attending an upcoming presentation at the Door County Aging and Disability Resource Center. According to the ADRC, 50 to 70 percent of adults with chronic pain suffer from sleep issues. Not getting enough sleep could lead to other issues like obesity and moodiness. Door County Human Services behavioral health therapist Sue Exworthy says sleep is a big topic of conversation when she meets with clients for a number of different issues including chronic pain.
Exworthy says it is important to track your sleep patterns so you can more easily be able to pinpoint why your issues are occurring. The presentation on chronic pain and sleep will take place on November 12th at the Door County ADRC beginning at 1 p.m.
