Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnea
We have all experienced it. You wake up on the wrong side of the bed. But it is more than that sometimes. Sometimes you sleep a full 8 hours but you did not sleep in the position best suited for your body. Neck cramps, headaches, and back pain immediately set in and stay the remainder of the day.
Most likely you have a favorite sleep position. For most of us, this is the first position in which we lay after getting into bed. It’s usually our most comfortable position, and most likely the position you’ve been sleeping in for years.
Have you ever thought that your favorite sleeping position may be affecting your sleep? And if so, are there better positions to enhance your sleep?
