Neck pain is one of the most common pains from sleeping improperly, but sometimes it can be tough to find a comfortable sleeping position that doesn’t cause neck pain. 

Here are some tips to help get your neck in the best position for sleeping. Often, your pillow can be key to preventing neck pain while you sleep. It’s important to check the height of your pillow. Too high or too flat can cause your neck to be in an overstretched position. Adjustable pillows are great to find the best height for you.

Also, a pillow that helps support or cradle your head can not only help keep your neck in a good neutral position to prevent pain and tightness, but also help prevent snoring by helping keep the airway open.

Contoured pillows, like the KANUDA Piano Air Pillow can be very beneficial. They help support your neck when you're sleeping on your back or your side. They can also help to keep your neck in a neutral or natural position to help reduce and prevent neck pain.
