Sleep

Sleep is very important. Problems with sleep can make pain and inflammation much worse.

The amount of sleep needed varies from person to person, but you will probably know if you have a problem. Often young people don't get enough sleep.

Many people do not feel refreshed in the morning due to disturbed or inadequate sleep. This may lead to reduced concentration, irritability or feeling sleepy during the day.

If you have experienced any of these issues or would like advice on improving your sleep, support is available here or you can discuss this with our occupational therapist.
