Learn Which Are The Right Sleeping Positions For All Your Pains

Health/General

Did you know that sleep is almost the best solution for every problem? You just need to close your eyes and dream about the destination you want to be right now. And suddenly, you just become calmer and forget about your daily problems.
But, sleeping in the right position is much important.  Here are a few tips from top experts on how to sleep correctly to fix all of your health issues:

 

1. Shoulder Pain

If you tend to experience shoulder pain often, avoid sleeping on the side, particularly on the affected shoulder. It is not recommended to sleep on the stomach as it causes the incorrect position of the shoulders.

The best sleeping position is lying on the back with a thin pillow placed under the head. To keep the shoulders in a stable position, put another pillow on the stomach and hug it.

If sleeping on the back doesn’t work for you, consider lying on the side that is not affected. Bring the legs toward the chest and put a pillow between the knees.

2. Back Pain

Keeping the normal curves of the spine is of utmost importance in case of back pain.

Sleeping on the back with a pillow placed under the knees is the best position for fixing back pain, as it helps restore the natural spinal curves.  If you prefer sleeping on the stomach, place a pillow under the abdomen and the pelvis in order to prevent the back from moving forward.

Ultimately, if you are a side sleeper, take the fetal position. Bring the legs toward the chest and keep the back naturally arched. Consider placing a small pillow between the knees.

3. Neck Pain

In case of neck pain, sleeping on the back with a pillow placed under the head and another under the arms is the best option. Those with neck pain should opt for a roll or orthopedic pillows.

If you are a side sleeper, make sure the pillow is not too high. Its heights should match the weight of the shoulder to keep the neck in the proper position.

If you prefer sleeping on the stomach, use a thin pillow. However, it is not recommended to sleep on the stomach as it will strain the neck.

4. Can’t Fall Asleep

The light emitted from phones and computers impacts the sleep-wake cycle, so banish the before bedtime.  In addition, avoid drinking coffee, black tea, chocolate, and soda at least six hours prior going to sleep. Ultimately, exercise in the morning and afternoon to improve the body circulation and fall asleep easier.

5. Can’t Stay Asleep

If you tend to wake up often in the middle of the night, consider avoiding the use of gadgets before bedtime and avoiding alcohol consumption before bedtime. Keep the room temperature at 20-22°С, too.

6. Can’t Wake Up

This problem is quite difficult to solve, though! All you have to do is to set the alarm for the same time every day, even on weekends. Needless to say, sleep early in the evening if you want to wake up early.

7. Snoring

Those who tend to snore should avoid sleeping on the back as in this position the throat tissues sag and narrow the airway.  Sleep on the side instead, since with the head in a natural position nothing will disrupt the airflow.

8. Leg Cramps

Leg cramps are felt as sudden spasms or tightening of the muscles in thighs, calf, and feet. Nocturnal leg cramps are typically related to any nerve damage, disease, or mineral deficiency.  A good way to fix leg cramps is to stretch the muscles by massaging the legs or doing yoga before bedtime.
