Do You Wake Up In Pain?

Published March 23rd, 2016 by Markson Chiropractic And Medical

Do you feel sore or stiff when you wake up? This can be your body's way of telling you there might be some issues. Here are some questions to consider:

What position are you sleeping in?

If you're sleeping on your stomach, switch positions! It’s a hard habit to break especially because it will affect your sleeping patterns for a little bit. But long term, your spine will thank you. 

Is it time for a new mattress?

If your mattress is over 10 years old (even if it's a Tempurpedic!) it's time for a new mattress. Some of the fancier mattresses guarantee that they'll last up to 20 years, but that is not always the case. If you're unsure whether it's time for a mattress change, I'm happy to help!

Is there a bigger issue?

A new mattress and changing your sleeping position will help, but if there's a bigger issue at hand this could be your body's way of letting you know that it's time to go see a chiropractor to get to the bottom of what's going on. 

We're here to help in whatever way we can so give us a call with any questions!
