Sleeping Positions play a role in how you feel the next day.

General guidelines for sleeping:

  • Sleep so that your back is in a neutral position. The neutral position keeps the back in its natural 3 front-to-back curves that give the spine an "S" shape.
  • Use a towel roll to support your lower back or place a pillow under your knees when sleeping on your back.
  • Place a pillow between your knees when sleeping on your side.
  • Place a pillow under knees if desired when sleeping on your back.

To rise from bed:

  • Roll onto your side and bend both knees.
  • Drop your feet over the side of the bed as you push with both arms to sit up.
  • Scoot to the edge of the bed and position your feet under your buttocks.
  • Stand up, keeping your back in the neutral position.

Position to avoid:

  • Sleeping on your stomach should be avoided
  • Puts strain on neck and low back.
  • Position can undo or decrease the progress of your adjustments and chiropractic care.
