I have done a search on here and google but was wondering what potentially non obvious tips people had about avoiding stiff neck after sleeping.
I bought a new mattress and even a contoured pillow and sleep on my back. Every few weeks I seem to have a morning where I wake up and my neck is particularly stiff and I cant lean it to one direction. It really makes for both a painful and unproductive day. Is there anything that can be done to ensure my neck does not turn in my sleep and keep causing this?
Also, in terms of getting rid of it, does anyone have any other suggestions other than:
Warm towel, muscle relaxers, hot shower, tilting neck to opposite side of pain.
Or do yall have any tips that I may be missing or common mistakes when doing these (properly preparing warm towel, properly tilting neck)?
