How to Sleep your Pain and Wrinkles Away...
A good night sleep is bliss for the body after getting extremely tired of work-related pressure. But people often fail to understand the right posture for one's body to get maximum relaxation and to alleviate back, neck and muscle pain.
Medical experts recommend people to sleep on their back as it prevents back and neck pain. Back position is the best position to relax one's back, neck muscles. However, this position is not recommendable for people with severe snoring and sleep apnea.
Next to back positions, the side position is also very helpful in relaxing muscles. This position is best suitable for women and expecting mothers. It is beneficial for pregnant women as sleeping on their side increases blood flow to the baby. Besides, it also prevents neck and back pain, reduces acid reflux and reducessnoring.
However, it is important to note that side-sleeping could constrict the shoulder and neck muscles due to the weight of the head on the arm, all night. Therefore, a person with the habit of sleeping on his side should do a shoulder stretch to stretch the back of the shoulders and prevent soreness. Side-sleeping also might worsen facial wrinkles and increase breast sagging over time. This sleep position is recommended for people with back pain with a pillow under your knees to relieve strain on the lumbar spine.
