A good night’s sleep is essential for good health and overall wellbeing. However, is poor sleeping posture slowing you down? A healthy and supported neck can be greatly impacted by a poor night’s sleep. From old mattresses to incorrect sleeping positions, bad posture and inadequate sleep hygiene can all place unnecessary strain on your neck – making it sore and stiff the next morning.
According to the Sleep Foundation, 33% of your life is spent sleeping,7 so the way you sleep should help, not hinder, your spinal health. Sleeping in awkward positions can cause back and neck pain, along with fatigue, muscle cramping and other health issues.
If you are hindered by pain from poor sleep, and neck pain is slowing you down, then consider chiropractic care. Following a thorough evaluation, your ACA chiropractor can provide advice on better sleeping positions, postural exercises, supportive mattresses, and ergonomic pillows to ensure you sleep well and your neck doesn’t suffer.
Chiropractors work in partnership with you to provide appropriate, tailored care as well as lifestyle advice to prevent re-occurrence.
