Your preferred sleep position and pillow greatly influence your posture and chronic pain. If you have neck, shoulder, back, or other pains—or want to avoid them—consider this infographic’s sleep position recommendations.
The graphic comes from the Cleveland Clinic, via SheKnows. It highlights the do’s and dont’s for five common types of chronic pain: neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, jaw pain and headaches, and hip pain. It’s similar to aprevious graphic we saw at the Wall Street Journal, but recommends the best and worst positions by type of pain.
Switching your default sleep position isn’t always easy, but if the way you’re sleeping is exacerbating or causing your pain, changing position is worth a try.
