Are You Losing Sleep Over Neck Pain?
Sleep deprivation is an experience you have probably had. Most nights you are tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable position to sleep. Sometimes, that does not work and you have to try different remedies to help you go back to sleep. There are important tasks for you to do in the morning and throughout the day. However, what can you do about your sleep deprivation if your neck pain is the cause of it?
Can Pillows Help?
The neck has over 20 muscles that are connected inside. They are all working to keep them supported. Also, the neck muscles are enabling the movements of your neck, jaw, back and shoulders. Waking up to your neck being sore in the morning from sleeping or when you take a nap can happen in many ways. A stiff neck hurts and can be very annoying. It usually occurs when you sleep on a pillow that is too high or thick. Then, like most people you may try to stack more pillows to make it more comfortable for your head and neck. What you may not realize is that by doing this it also affects your spine. Adding more pillows under your head and neck can change the position of your spine which leads to back and neck problems such as neck pain. On the other hand, soft pillows may seem to work. Though, when you use pillows that are way too soft, they cause strain to your neck muscles.
Pillows are good to use especially when they are providing your neck with proper support. Purchasing pillows that have feathers are helpful in avoiding neck pain because they can adapt to the form of your neck. It is best to have a, “C” or “U” shaped pillow with you when traveling, especially long distances. The neck pain you are experiencing can be prevented in many ways. Still, neck pain needs to be diagnosed. It is important to know your symptoms and the severity of the pain. Your neck pain can be diagnosed by consulting with your chiropractor.
