Your preferred sleep position and pillow greatly influence your posture and chronic pain. If you have neck, shoulder, back or other pains — or want to avoid them — consider this infographic’s sleep position recommendations.
The graphic comes from the Cleveland Clinic, via SheKnows. It highlights the do’s and don’ts for five common types of chronic pain: neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, jaw pain and headaches, and hip pain. It’s similar to a previous infographic we saw at the Wall Street Journal, but this one recommends the best and worst positions by type of pain.
Switching your default sleep position isn’t always easy, but if the way you’re sleeping is exacerbating or causing you’re pain, changing position is worth a try.
