Do you wake up with Back or Neck pain?
Remember, even the smallest misalignment held many hours (like sleeping), can cause discomfort and pain. If you already have an injury or struggle with chronic pain, the alignment piece of the puzzle is even more important.
Here are a few simple solutions for back pain from sleeping:
Avoid sleeping on your stomach. Sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees with you legs bent. Take pressure off of your back by keeping your knees an inch or two higher than your hips. Keep your head supported on a comfortable pillow that allows for proper cervical support. Bed, Bath and Beyond have a generous selection of pillows that won’t break your budget.
These basic small changes can make a big difference in your pain level. Let me know how you’re doing and stayed tuned for simple solutions part 2.
