Sleeping Positions play a role in how you feel the next day.
Here are some general guidelines for sleeping:
Sleep so that your back is in a neutral position.
The neutral position keeps the back in its natural 3 front-to-back curves that give the spine an “S” shape.
Use a towel roll to support your lower back or place a pillow under your knees when sleeping on your back.
Place a pillow between your knees when sleeping on your side.
Place a pillow under knees if desired when sleeping on your back.
To rise from bed or anytime you're supine:
Roll onto your side and bend both knees.
Drop your feet over the side of the bed as you push with both arms to sit up.
Scoot to the edge of the bed and position your feet under your buttocks.
Stand up, keeping your back in the neutral position.
Position to avoid:
Sleeping on your stomach should be avoided.
Puts strain on neck and low back.
Improper sleeping positions can undo or decrease the effectiveness of your chiropractic adjustments.
