Support Your Sleeping
In the morning, are you feeling stiff with shoulder, hip or lower back pain? When you sleep, your spine surrenders to gravity, even with a supportive mattress. You may have areas of your spine that are stiff with segments of the spine that become hyper-mobile, this creates an imbalance. The stiff parts do not relax and the hyper-mobile areas collapse. Sleeping in this imbalanced position can create more discomfort and pain. Sleeping with the least amount of stress of the spine and shoulder/hip joints can ease morning stiffness and pain. Try propping yourself with pillows and a towel roll for a better night sleep. Madeline demonstrates how to best prop yourself for a supportive sleep.
