So many complain of back and neck pain when waking in a morning. More often than not this is to do with the position you are sleeping in rather than the quality of your bed a mattress. If you have a mattress and bed from www.dreams.co.uk you are guaranteed quality that will not cause aches and pains. Therefore consider the following sleeping positions.
If you do suffer from neck and back pain then try to avoid sleeping on your front. The reason for this is that by sleeping in this position you are twisting the lower back and the neck, which creates the stiffness or pain. Some experts say that sleeping on your front is not good for anyone. Babies should not, supposedly, be laid on their front, as this is associated with sudden infant death syndrome. If you sleep on your front then your head automatically turns to the side twisting your neck and your spine. The spine is very sensitive so a continuous twist for maybe six to eight hours is not good.
Sleeping on your back will help prevent the neck and lower back problems. In this position you are preventing your neck and back from arching and compressing your joints. A good tip is to place a pillow under you bent knees. This allows the back to stay in a neutral position. An added bonus of lying on your back is that the lungs and other vital organs are evenly spaced and can rest without being squashed.
If you find sleeping on your back impossible then try sleeping on your side. This keeps the spine and neck in alignment, eliminating unwanted aches and pains. Place a long body pillow between your knees and elbows to help keep the natural curves in the body while not compressing the neck and lower back.
