Waking up with a stiff neck is miserable!

It can ruin your day, and may lead to a headache.

Should you wake up with a stiff neck? No.

So why do you wake up with a stiff neck?

The most common reason is your position while sleeping.

Our goal while sleeping should be to remain in a neutral position.

And never on our stomach!

The great thing about sleeping with your head and neck in a neutral position

is that it can help prevent low back stiffness or pain.

Dr. Brittney modeled what it looks like to sleep in a neutral position.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notice how her head and neck are neutral in both positions.

Also, notice how her head and neck BOTH have support.

A pillow that does not support both your head and neck is useless.

If you would like to have your pillow check, please let us know!

We commonly help people determine if their pillow provides support,

and if they can sleep in a neutral position on it.

We hope you found this informative.  Please share it with others!
