Health Tip of The Week: Neck Pain- How to Sleep on Sides

When you sleep on back,use this way:
“Roll a towel up and place it under the back of your neck to support your neck when you sleep at night.
Adjust the height of the towel according to your cervical curvature and your comfort.”
But when you sleep on sides, you need a higher pillow.
Why?
Let me explain: Not enough support will cause your neck injury and(or) shoulder blade injury.
Measure the length from the edge of your head to the edge of your shoulder. It should be much longer than the support of your cervical curvature.
Preparing a small pillow beside your head, when you turn on sides add the small pillow on to your regular pillow.

Health Tip of The Week: Neck Pain -Take A Break

The neck needs a rest from constant sitting for example: sitting at computer, sitting at the desk,watching TV……..

Your head weights approximately 8 pounds which is a lot of weight for the neck to support. In the same posture it will often cause a lot of pressure on the neck muscles.

Make sure to periodically stand up and walk around.

Some of my patients asked me: Why does it help? Even when I stand up and walk around, my head is still on my neck.

Yes, we can not take off our heads. But sitting in the same posture, your neck contracts the same neck muscles to maintain this posture. When standing up and walking around, the neck will let those muscles relax and contract the other neck muscles!
