If you want to change your sleeping position, make sure you’re set up with a good side-sleeping pillow. The main purpose of a pillow is to align the cervical spine (the part in your neck) so there is no flexion (bend) or tension (muscle tightness) in the neck during sleep. Too plump or too thin, and your pillow can’t do its job to keep your body aligned while you sleep. Your head shouldn’t be tilted up or down when you’re sleeping. While lying on your pillow ask your sleep partner or a friend to look at you lying down on your pillow to check if your spine’s in alignment.
