I am working with a physical therapist because of my crappy posture finally leading to shoulder/neckaches and headaches.
I think a big problem is with my sleeping position. I sleep on my side (despite falling asleep on my back) and I always wake up with my head pointed down causing neck strain. This also is affecting my shoulders as well.
I have a contoured memory foam pillow but it doesn't really help in regards to this.
I guess I need advice on how to keep my neck in a healthy position throughout the night. Is this possible? Is there a technique or cetain type of pillow that can help?
