Greenwood Village Chiropractor shares 2 ways to avoid pain while sleeping

As a practicing Greenwood Village chiropractor, I get a lot of questions about back pain and what might be causing it.

Most people aren’t surprised to learn that their sleeping habits may be playing a role…

If you’re used to waking up after a night of sleep with pain, keep reading because I’m going to share 2-ways to avoid pain while sleeping.

Many are unaware of what they can do during the night to keep the pain at bay.

Truthfully, there are some very simple fixes to help your body be more comfortable throughout the night.

And when you wake up in the morning, the discomfort will be much better.

The first thing to be aware of is the position you sleep in at night.  The most common options are on your back, stomach, or side.

Ultimately, sleeping on your stomach should be avoided at all costs.  It puts unnecessary torque on the cervical spine, and also applies too much pressure to the low-back.

Side-sleeping and laying on your back are the 2-most beneficial sleeping positions for humans.  However, there are a few nuances you should be aware of before getting into these positions.

The first is a pillow near your knees, in either position.

When laying on your side, it’s important to have a pillow in between your knees.  This keeps your hips and legs parallel to each other.

If you’re laying on your back, it’s important to have a pillow under your knees in order to keep pressure off the discs in the low-back.

By making this small adjustment to your sleep, you will help your body avoid sleeping under stress for 7-9 hours each night.  It also will give you a higher probability of waking up without pain in the morning.

If you’re tired of dealing with your pain, and you’re looking for a Greenwood Village chiropractor, we’d be happy to help you.

Schedule a case review to determine if neurological stress is contributing to your pain.

Dr. Matt Pennetti suffered from excruciating cluster headaches in college that threatened to derail his playing career and school. His life took a turn when he was introduced to a Neuro-Structural Chiropractor who was able to gave him relief from the pain and discomfort. After that life-changing moment, Dr. Matt decided he wanted to to do the same for other people who suffer with health issues. When Dr. Matt is not in the office, he's feverishly completing the "honey-do" list, or trying to keep his son, Braxton from growing up too quick.
