Getting more back pain than forty winks at night? Check these two common sleeping mistakes from our Southend chiropractor and you could discover the guilty culprit:
Sleeping in the wrong position
Your sleeping position could be causing your back pain. If you sleep on your back, try placing a pillow beneath your knees. If you snooze on your stomach, put a pillow underneath your lower abdomen. And if you’re a side sleeper, tuck a pillow between your knees.
Sleeping on an old mattress
If you’ve had your mattress for 7 years or more, it probably isn’t doing your spine any favours. If you can’t invest in a new mattress right now, adding plywood underneath your existing mattress may help to reduce your back pain and discomfort.
Sleep is crucially important to the overall health of your spine. Don’t let back pain get in the way of a good night’s rest.
