Many people wake up in the morning and are experiencing neck and shoulder pain from sleeping. This can happen because of the way you sleep, your mattress, or your pillow. Many people are stomach sleepers which can be the main cause of neck and shoulder pain because it places the spine in an unnatural position which puts strain on the surrounding musculature and ligaments. when you are in that position all night long you wake up and those muscles are not only not rested but they are overused from being stuck in that position. Overuse, even though you think you are sleeping, can still cause Kane to end strain which will in return cause injury.

 Sleeping on your side with a pillow between your legs and a good supportive pillow under your neck and even a pillow that you can rest your arm on while you sleep is the best way to keep your spine aligned and your muscles relaxed in a shortened position so that in the morning everything has had a chance to recover instead of continuing to be stretched or put in a straining position. Another thing that people don’t think of is their mattress, is it old? Is it too firm? Is it too soft? These can all be factors of your pain and things to think about when diagnosing the cause and creating a solution.
