Is Your Pillow to Blame for Your Neck Pain?

You spend about a third of your life sleeping in bed, so it makes sense that you make your sleeping environment as healthy as possible.

If you regularly wake up having “slept awkwardly” with a painful or stiff neck, it could be because your pillow is not adequately supporting your head and spine. Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor recommends that you choose a pillow that promotes a “neutral sleeping position”. This means that the natural slight curve of your neck is not changed as you sleep.

Choosing the right pillow can help to improve the quality of your sleep and prevent or manage neck pain. You can make some simple checks on your pillow to identify whether or not it could be putting you at risk of neck pain.  If you sleep on your side, your pillow should just fill the space between your ear and your mattress without tilting your head. If you sleep on your back, your pillow should keep your head from tilting backward or forward.

Don’t dream about better spine health. Live it.
