Throughout the day you are constantly shifting your position in hopes that you can reduce enough pressure in order to lower the amount of pain you experience. In fact, most people feel nagging pain from the minute they wake up due to the fact that they are sleeping in a position that does not provide the needed support. Luckily, there are simple things that you can do at night so that you wake up feeling refreshed. It is a god idea to sleep in a neutral position with your back not arched too much but not flat either. When sleeping on your side, place a pillow between your knees and put a small, rolled-up towel under your waist if needed. If you prefer to sleep on your back, put a pillow under your knees. If these do not work for you, talk with your spine specialist to find the best option for your situation.
Alleviate Pain before Problems Develop

If you begin to notice that you are having greater pain in your back or neck or that it is becoming chronic, it is important that you meet with your doctor. You will be able to get to the root of the problem and catch any issues before they develop into anything more serious. A spine professional can help you understand various spinal conditions, and share with you symptoms to watch out for, so that you can get the treatment you need without any delay. Set up an appointment to talk about any pain that you have or if you have a history of spinal conditions in your family. Doing so will get you on the path towards lesser pain each day.
