So many of our clients, unfortunately, suffer from unrelenting pain caused by a trauma. Pain’s ability to disrupt one’s sleep can be devastating. The pain cycle can lead to irritability, decreased work productivity, more pain, etc.
The useful graphic comes from the Cleveland Clinic, via SheKnows. It shows the do’s and dont’s for five types of pain: neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, jaw pain and headaches, and hip pain. If you’re one of many who suffer from any of these types of pain, you should make sure that your sleeping position reduces your pain rather than increases it.
