Waking up every morning with symptoms of neck pain and numbness are well-known among many people. While a sore neck and body weakness can commonly occur during sleep, an individual doesn’t have to live daily with these symptoms and several lifestyle changes can help.
It’s important to evaluate the individual’s sleeping posture. Using feather pillows to sleep on which tend to become flat during the night or thin foam pillows are not suitable options to avoid waking up with neck pain and other symptoms.
Many people usually read at night before going to bed. The posture used during this nighttime ritual can also strain the neck and lead to symptoms of pain and numbness.
Changing bad habits that cause an improper posture and seeing a chiropractor to treat neck misalignments among other conditions is important in order to correct any damage from an improper sleeping position.
Many people wake up or a regular basis feeling symptoms of neck pain and numbness. While this is a common problem, the discomfort from the symptoms can be a challenge. Simple changes in sleeping posture can help. The right pillow and avoiding an excessive use of media devices can help relieve some of the neck pain symptoms.
