misalignment causes painThe spinal column is made of bones called vertebrae, soft cushioning discs that act as shock absorbers and strong, heavy ligaments that add form and stability. Attached to the spine are many muscles that give strength and movement to the spine. The spine houses the spinal cord and spinal nerves that carry information to the entire body. The spine is a complex structure designed to move and inherintly susceptible to dysfunction. When the spine becomes misaligned, it can affect daily function in a variety of ways. One of the most common results is neck pain. And and one of the most common places you are affected most is with sleep.
side sleep is best for the spine, but...Sleeping on your side is most common throughout the night, and the best for your spine. If you snore on your back, shifting to your side generally quiets the noise by opening the air passage way. Place a firm pillow between your knees to alleviate pressure off of your hips and low back if possible.
Another firm pillow should support your head and neck in a straight line with the rest of your body. Two pillows or soft pillows tilt your head and stresses the muscles on either side of your neck that can lead to stiff necks, headaches, and even torticollis in the mornings. Using the right pillow in the right place during sleep can lead to a sound slumber without the residual neck pain in the morning.
