Welcome back to our two-part series about pain-free sleep! Last month, we discussed the best kind of mattress for your back pain. You can check it out by CLICKING HERE. As always, if you have any questions about sleep, consult your primary care doctor.
If you are stiff and in pain when that alarm rings, you might wonder if you are sleeping wrong. A good, restful sleep is not just what happens in the bedroom. Feeling well-rested plays a significant role in your daily life. When you aren’t sleeping well, changing your position may help. Plus, experimenting with sleep position is an easy way to start.
Unfortunately, there is not a “one size fits all” universal approach for the best sleep position. When you are experimenting, take good notes on the way you sleep and how you felt throughout the day. See if a pattern emerges. You may wake up in a totally different position, and that’s okay! Most everyone will moves while sleeping. Even starting off in a certain position can improve your night’s sleep.
Here are some sleep positions:
Even with a new, improved sleep position, you may still continue to have a sore back. Together with your sleep diary, chiropractic care can help helps alleviate your back pain. Also, your chiropractor can help your sleep overall because of the improved blood flow. When you are in less pain, you won’t toss and turn as much looking for that comfortable position.
