Why Sleeping Funny isn’t the Cause of Morning Pain it’s…
When waking up with morning pain, how often is your first thought “Gee, I must have slept funny?”
It makes perfect sense. You went to bed without pain yet there it was when you woke up. But what if I was to tell you that there was a deeper cause to morning pain and stiffness – beyond those common feelings of sleeping funny.
Clinically, I find the root cause of morning neck or back pain is not what happens when you sleep. It actually has more to do with what happens when you’re awake. More specifically, I find it intrinsically linked to the postures, positions, and shapes you put the affected area in the most throughout the day prior.
And just to make it clear, I’m not talking about the active interesting things we do, but the stationary monotonous things. The ones that flow through almost everything we do.
In this video, I discuss how to figure out where your morning aches and pains truly come from – beyond sleeping funny. Furthermore, I touch on how pillows, mattresses and sleeping positions apply this broader new perspective.
SPOILER: They’re clearly important, but perhaps not as important as we have made them out to be for so long.
Topics covered in this video:
- Why your morning neck and back pain aren’t from sleeping funny
- The role of poor spinal postures and positions from the day before on morning pain
- The importance of pillows, mattresses, and sleeping positions on morning pain
