Rest and sleep are one of the most essential needs of the body. One goes through postural, physical and mental stress daily due to body movements and work pressure. So, it is very important that we sleep in a proper position. During rest, the muscles and ligaments of the body heal the wear and tear caused by various activities.

There are three curves in our spinal column we need to pay attention to, they are the lower back, middle of the back and the one close to the neck. The aim is to maintain these natural curves while sleeping.

The moment we curl up in bed, we adopt a preferred sleeping posture every day without much thought. However, it is necessary to realize that our sleeping positions and postures usually become the sole reason for our aches in various parts...

The Question is Not WHETHER Side Sleepers Need a Pillow Between Their Knees

Posted by Eileen Pelletier on July 22, 2016. 0 Comments

Professionals in the healthcare industry all make it clear how important correct sleep position is for getting a good night's sleep, especially for side sleepers. Without a pillow between their knees, side sleepers' hips will not be properly aligned, leading to pressure in the back and hips. Stacking your legs without a cushion, can also lead to serious knee discomfort.

But, what is the best choice for the pillow between your knees? Comfort is the number one important factor when choosing a pillow, because if it is not comfortable, it will make it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep. Overly large pillows are cumbersome, but equally, very small pillows may not be the proper design to adequately align your hips, and may get lost during the night, therefore offering no help whatsoever.

Sleepy Kneez has been developed to be the exact shape required to cushion the knees and correct...

Getting A Great Night's Sleep Away From Home

Posted by Eileen Pelletier on July 09, 2016. 0 Comments

Many people complain that while away from home they do not sleep well. The mattress is not the same as at home, and the pillows are different. They can't seem to get comfortable. Since developing Sleepy Kneez, I sleep as well when I am away, because attaching my pillow to my leg, ensures that my hips are properly aligned, and my knees are cushioned. If my sleep position is correct, my body can relax as well no matter where I sleep. In fact, one of the reasons that I made this knee pillow smaller than most, is that I wanted to make sure that it would be small enough to fit into a carry-on bag, yet large enough to do its job. After 2 years of testing, I have come up with what I believe to be the optimal size for a knee pillow. Try Sleepy Kneez if you sleep...

The Best Sleep Positions for a Bad Back, Knee or Shoulder

Posted by Eileen Pelletier on May 16, 2016. 0 Comments

One of rest's main purposes is restoration. “When we sleep,” explains Dr. Andrew Yaun, chiropractic sports physician, “the body physiologically shifts gears, rerouting more blood to our immune system and organs. Because of this change, the immune system works at its highest levels during sleep, allowing us to heal, combat sickness or build muscle.

When we’re suffering a tweaked knee, stiff neck or any other sort of nagging injury, however, it can feel as though rest is working against us, that every way we lay we choose is agonizing. The key, then, is to be a bit more thoughtful about your sleeping position.

In general, Dr Yaun says the best sleep position is on the back, with your arms by your side or on your stomach, as it’s an anatomically neutral position that “puts little strain on the musculoskeltal system.”

When you’re hurt, however, this isn’t ideal. There are ways to optimize the...

Getting the Best Posture When You Sleep

Posted by Eileen Pelletier on May 14, 2016. 0 Comments

Aches and pains in the neck and back are some of the most common complaints in chiropractic care. Although stress, exercise injuries and other conditions can lead to chronic back and neck pain, poor sleep posture is a major contributor.
A bad night of sleep causes more than discomfort the next day — it can also lead to cognitive impairment, irritability and even depression. If you have chronic discomfort in your back or neck, and you believe poor sleep posture may be the cause, Dr. Jason Crist of Crist Chiropractic & Wellness can help.
How Sleep Position Affects Your Neck and Back
Your sleep position can harm or enhance your health. Stomach sleepers often find themselves feeling sore or achy because the spine is not properly aligned for long periods of time. This leads to pain and numbness in the back, neck, legs and pelvis. Placing a pillow underneath your pelvis during sleep...

Bad Posture and Your Back

Posted by Eileen Pelletier on April 13, 2016. 0 Comments

Good posture is essential to prevent back pressure. This includes standing, sitting, and sleeping postures. Considering that we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, sleep posture is especially important. The ONLY way to correct your sleep posture, if you sleep on your side, is with a pillow between your knees. This will align your hips, and prevent your top leg from pulling your spine out of proper alignment. You will definitely feel discomfort after seven or eight hours of sleeping incorrectly. A regular pillow is too large, doesn't retain its firmness between your knees, and disappears during the night.

Aren't you willing to invest in your back?

Wouldn't it Surprise you?

Wouldn't it surprise you to learn that your back pain is not because of your age or some illness? Wouldn't it surprise you that the pain could come from the way you sleep? We spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, yet we give little thought to the position we sleep in. Most health experts claim that maintaining your spine in a neutral position, and properly aligning your hips while you sleep, could determine whether you wake up during the night. Side sleepers, which make up approximately 65% of people, require a knee pillow to correct their sleep posture. Sleepy Kneez is your best option, since it attaches to the leg, to stay in place all night, and is so comfortable you barely notice it's there. Sleep Tight!
