Why Is My Neck So Stiff From Sleeping

It seems like every week we get a slew of clients who complain of neck pain. While there are many causes for neck pain, one of the main neck pain culprits is poor sleep position. Sleeping with your neck sideways or scrunched can leaded to unnecessary strain on the neck. Too much or too little pillow support could also be serious neck pain waiting to happen.

When sleeping, your head and shoulders need to remain aligned. Your chiropractor will agree that a quality pillow that will support your head and shoulders is well worth your investment.

If you are having neck pain from sleeping, schedule and appointment at Towne Lake Family Chiropractic where we can assess your pain and determine the treatments right for you. In the mean time, reassess your pillow and sleeping positions.
