Is Your Sleep Causing You Pain?

By Virginia Laird

Sleep should never be painful, and yet there are many who have never experienced a night of sleep without it. For the millions who struggle with this issue it can seem as though there will never be an end in sight. Chiropractors say there are a wide variety of things you can do to help keep pain away as you sleep. Some of the recommended changes can be more of a challenge to make happen. However, sleeping without pain can make it all worthwhile. Some of their tips include: 

  • Get the sleep you need
  • Change your mattress as needed
  • Check your sleep position

Get the Sleep You Need

Where there is a lack of sleep, the body can struggle to keep pain at bay. It is advised that the average adult should get at least six hours of sleep each night. This can prove to be a challenge to those with demanding jobs, small children, or other issues. To help you get enough rest, chiropractors say you should go to bed when you feel tired rather than pushing yourself too far. 

Change Your Mattress as Needed

For millions, pain during your sleep is a harsh reality that seems to keep you from resting well each night. Chiropractors encourage patients to check the mattress for signs of aging. Sleeping on a mattress that is too old can be one sure reason for pain. It is advised that if your mattress is older than eight years, ti should be replaced. 

Check Your Sleep Position

Often times when pain is experienced while sleeping it has a great deal to do with your sleep position. Chiropractors say that far too many choose to sleep on their stomach. This is a huge mistake when it comes to preventing back pain. There is research that suggests that stomach sleeping can cause restriction and pain. Chiropractors say that sleeping on the back is the best position to prevent pain.
