SLEEPING WITH A SHOULDER PAIN
If you are having shoulder pain you know the best that how hard it can be at night to get proper sleep. Because of this pain you often are unable to sleep or to stay in sleep. But if you want to improve your sleep here are some tips.
1.Do not sleep on your front:
You may think that sleeping on your front may keep pressure off your sore shoulders. But unfortunately, when you sleep on your front your shoulders are pulled forward out and disturbs the alignment and does not help you to keep a stable position. Instead, sleep on your back because sleeping on the back will keep your shoulders in a good position.
- Opposite of the bad shoulder:
You better sleep on your back but ifit isn’t working for you, then sleep on the side opposite to your sore shoulder. In this situation, add a soft pillow in the underarm are and provide support to your sore shoulder.
- Support your head:
Always give support your head with a comfy pillow so to keep your body in proper alignment. And with that support try to keep your shoulder as comfortable as you can.Also consider a rolled up towel around the neck area.
- Use a body pillow:
If you move around while sleeping consider using a full length body pillow which may provide support to your whole body and keep it at one place. While you are considering this pillow makes sure that it is soft and it has enough elasticity which will mold a bit according to the posture of your body.
- Comfortable Duvet:
Duvets are also very soothing for the patients having sore shoulder. Always buy the best comfortable duvets which are comfortable and soft. Autumnnights luxury bed linen brings you the best the best duvets and autumnnights duvet covers are the best in the town.
6. Don’t be afraid:
If a particular sleeping position has worked for you for a while but now it isn’t working, then do not get afraid of trying something else. If you are sleeping at the right side and now it is not comfortable for you try to sleep on the left side. As I have also experienced that when I have a sore in the shoulder, the position that suited me for the most of the times was the right side but after a couple of weeks that was not working for me, so I start exploring new positions and when I found a suitable position I kept that for the next week.
