Side sleeper shoulder pillows in bed, but I'm also going to show you how you can use sleep to Actually heal and to recover, if you have shoulder pain, the most ideal position to sleep in is on your back on your back. Your joints experience the least amount of compression and your tissues have the least amount of strain. So the first thing is the pillow. That goes under your head. You want it to be the right thickness so that your forehead and your chin are in the same plane.
This is because the nerve roots that come out of your neck into your shoulder impact your shoulder, as do the muscles that attach from your neck to your shoulder. So how your head and neck is positioned is critical for the amount of stress that's placed on your shoulder. I like this buckwheat pillow because if you can really hollow out where your head is and then you can also have support up under your neck, a feather pillow can work really well for this too.
The next thing is, we need to actually take the weight of the arm and support it, so it's not pulling down on the shoulder joint. So if you take kind of a thin pillow and bring it all the way up into the armpit like this, your arm can just kind of float in the air on the pillow. Instead of having the weight of your shoulder dragging down on your shoulder joint, this can give you a lot of relief in your shoulder having the support and then finally, the last thing is to take a pillow to put under your legs.
So what in the world do my legs have to do with my shoulder, where your legs are touched to your pelvis, which is attached to your trunk? The position and the pull and the alignment of your trunk has a lot to do with your soul because it's the foundation that your shoulder girdle sits on. So if this is supported well, your shoulder girdle will be more supported so that your shoulder has less stress.
