Default Sleep advice

Hi all ;

Do you think lying on the affected side of pain could increase the pain , for example in a case of upper Quadrant ( with ULTT 7 Neural tension ) when lying on the affected upper limb of pain reference could increase the pain .

Cheers
Emad

Hi Emad,

No simple reply, there! I see people who are sleeping on their bad/painful side but can't sleep on the other one! But it maintains of course, their painful condition?!
I see people trying to do the contrary and pain increases because it elongates/increases neural tension.

I ever listen to the sleeping position of the patient and try to restore a better one if they could support/tolerate it.

Hi Bernard:

I feel when the pateint lies on the non-affected side , this will not increase the neural tension , but on contrary this will not compress nevres by the patient s weight of the HEAD for example .

Most of the patients suffering shoulder and upper Quadrant pain , i advise them to avoid lying on that affected side , then following that 2 or 3 days , the patient begins t say i am more better .

Cheers
