Neck pain is not pleasant, and it does matter which position you sleep in to keep your neck in proper alignment. If you are seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor for neck pain, you want to ensure your recent adjustment stays in place as long as absolutely possible.

We all need to take care of our necks while we are sleeping.
Waking up with a stiff neck usually causes you to wonder if you “got up on the wrong side of the bed” or “slept wrong” somehow. While we have to sleep at night, we must remember there is a right way and a wrong way when it comes to back and neck health.
Waking up with a stiff neck may mean it is time to visit us here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California. We can make sure you are not suffering from a misalignment, and if you are, we can work to correct it.
