What Causes Back Pain During the Night?

Back pain can be caused while you sleep as a result of poor or incorrect posture. This can result in added pressure on the muscles and nerves, which can manifest as back pain when you awake in the morning. 

It is reasonable to think that changing the position in which you sleep, whether from back sleeping to side sleeping or vice versa, can help to reduce back pain. However, this does not necessarily mean you will achieve correct postural alignment. With the Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow though, you can find a comfortable and pain-relieving spinal alignment without having to alter your position at night.

How Can the Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow Help Back Sleepers?

If you sleep on your back, the Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow from Therapeutica can provide you with optimal comfort and support while you rest. As well as helping you to correctly align your spine during the night, it also offers the following features and related benefits:

  • Wedge extension: The wedge extension, which is the part protruding from the centre of the pillow, supports your upper back. Not only does this help with alignment, but it also provides comfort beneath your upper back, while the gentle slope also helps to reduce the gap between your neck and the bed.
  • Cervical contour: The cervical contour above the wedge extension allows you to maintain the natural curve of your spine while you sleep. This prevents your spine from bending unnaturally or feeling unsupported and uncomfortable through the night.
  • Centre cavity: When sleeping on your back, you may feel like your head is positioned at an awkward angle. The centre cavity of the Sleeping Pillow can provide you with optimal head support and comfort, ensuring that your sleep does not need to be disturbed by any jolting awake from discomfort or misalignment.
