Sleeping

The key to good sleeping posture is a good mattress and pillow. It is important to have a relatively firm mattress that is recommended for its support. We can advise you on these. A memory foam overlay may also help.

Be sure to sleep on your side or back if your side is not comfortable, not on your stomach. Use a firm supportive pillow to support and align your head, neck and shoulders (see pillows on the supports page). Ideally use only one pillow to support your head and neck.

You want your mattress and pillow to enable your sleeping position to give you a relatively straight, yet supported spine. Once you go to sleep your conscious support of your body no longer occurs. You can also add an extra pillow between your knees or a towel under your neck if you need extra support.
