Spine Wellness Tip : Sleeping Posture.

It has been estimated that an individual will spend approximately 25 to 33% of their life sleeping!

Yet wellness is always focused on the awake hours; exercise, diet, life-style tips, etc.

This spine wellness tip will provide a few ideas for maintaining a healthy spine while sleeping – helping to avoid back pain!

* Select a good mattress and pillow! The key is one that is comfortable where you get “restorative” sleep – which is a period of time of uninterrupted sleep!
* Maintain proper support of your head and spine while sleeping. Your neck should maintain its natural alignment when you are sleeping.
* Ideally, if you can sleep on your back or side – this provides the most spine support.
