Chiropractic Health Hints



People spend countless hours planning a vacation trip or shopping for a new suit
of clothes, yet give little or no thought to an important one-third of their lives — sleep.
If you wake up with a stiff neck every morning, or your back has that "morning after"
feeling when the alarm goes off, it's time to take a good look at your sleeping habits.
Start with your mattress. It should never be extra-soft or extra-hard, just firm enough
to support your weight evenly once you settle in it for the night.
If you sleep on your stomach, you're asking for trouble! For eight hours every night,
your neck is twisted to one side, placing an undue strain on it. Also, the weight of the
spine and back muscles compresses the vital organs and increases swayback.
Equally bad for swayback is sleeping flat on your back. However, placing a pillow
under the knees while sleeping on your back is an excellent way to sleep. This will help
relieve swayback and takes pressure off the vital organs.
Generally speaking, the best way to sleep is on your side with the knees and hips
slightly bent. "Slightly" is the key word here. The knees should be bent at a 30 to 45 degree angle, not doubled
up into the stomach as if you were ready to do a somersault.
When sleeping on the side, it is important to use a flexible pillow which holds the head and neck in a normal
position, not an overstuffed one which tends to push them to one side.
You should begin preparing for sleep an hour or two before going to bed. Reading or watching television are
excellent ways to relax. A leisurely bath or light snack, such as warm milk, can also help you to relax.
These few hints should help you get a good night's sleep, to be able to wake up "fit as a fiddle" rather than
suffering from "morning after" back. However, should that stiff neck or sore back persist, call your Doctor of Chiroprac-
tic. Your problem may be more serious than just poor sleeping habits.
