Sleep Correctly

April 8, 2013

Healthier standing, sitting and sleeping habits will certainly reduce neck, head and back ache, pinched nerves, arm and shoulder pain, insomnia and mental fatigue. It’s that simple!

Sleep Correctly

Do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff and tired and looking a little wrinkled? We spend one third of our life sleeping, so it’s in our best interests to do it right.

Sleeping on your back is by far the best sleeping position. Using a good quality, low profile pillow supports the natural forward curve of the neck and keeps your spine in natural alignment.

Sleeping on your back will not put pressure and stress on your shoulders and hips and will not wrinkle your face (in fact, gravity will smooth the lines on your face overnight!). It is a good idea to place a bolster under your knees to relax your lower back.

Sleeping on your side is the second best sleeping position, as long as you use proper neck support to keep your spine straight.

It is a good idea to place a bolster or a pillow between your knees to relax your hips and lower back.

Please note that sleeping on your side will put pressure on the hip and shoulder you sleep on, and could eventually lead to pain and early degeneration.

m-man-2.gifDrPosture® recommends that you avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this position places stress your back and neck due to sustained head rotation for several hours through the night. Over time, it may promote early spinal degeneration.
