Why Does My Neck Hurt When I Wake Up In The Morning? – chiropractic care in Port Jefferson


Do you find your neck aching when you wake up? That can be the result of poor posture when sleeping. If you want to wake up feeling refreshed and not feeling discomfort, Dr. Sophia Argeropoulos can provide you with the best chiropractic care in Port Jefferson and have you feeling recovered.

One of the best ways to improve your neck pain while sleeping is changing your sleep position. It is best to sleep on your back or your side, as sleeping on your stomach puts a further strain on the neck. If you choose to sleep on your back, avoid using a pillow that is too stiff or high. Instead, try a round pillow that will support the curve of your neck, or use a memory foam pillow. If you sleep on your side, use a pillow that is higher under your neck than under your head. Using the right pillow will not only improve your ability to sleep but also reduce any discomfort you may feel in the morning.


Sometimes, however, reducing neck pain requires more than just changing your sleep position or your pillow. With our chiropractic care in Port Jefferson, we can use spinal manipulation and adjustments to improve your neck pain, which will result in less discomfort when you sleep. A chiropractic adjustment is a safe choice to not only reduce neck pain but also improve the mobility in your neck. Dr. Sophia Argeropoulos will also give you advice on how you can take better care of your neck, both at night and during the day to avoid neck pain altogether.


Along with taking care of spinal issues, providing neck adjustments can also help relieve that uncomfortable pain you feel. This will help build up the spine’s mobility and will increase the range of motion in the muscles adjoined to the neck. The results of this can show reduced signs of pain, stiffness, and overall soreness.


Before coming in, be sure to consult with your doctor about your neck pain, to find out what is causing it and to know if our chiropractic care in Port Jefferson is the right and safest option for you.  Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
