During this time our spine and ligaments posture could have some changes in positions. These changes may be stiff temporarily for the time we bent. To retain its position back, it may take few minutes. So we should take rest for few seconds or even a few minutes to our spine to take its shape back.

They even align our neck and shoulders with the entire body so that it eventually helps our back to stay aligned. We can try to always use pillows that are perfect to fill the gap between our neck and the bed, in this way we can keep our back straight while sleeping.

Using two pillows at a time or hard pillows can cause strain and stress to our shoulders and spine and can even lead to a permanent deformity.

6) Prevent overweight-Most of the diseases can be prevented by controlling weight and doing regular exercises. Overweight in the belly and other parts of the body might put more stress on our spinal cord. Fat accumulation near to bones can make it less flexible or hard to bend sometimes.

Experts and researchers find that losing weight might help us with partial or complete pain relief.

7) Stretching at proper intervals-These stretching exercises can give us good posture. Chest up, Chin tuck, Snow angel, Doorway stretch are some of them. These are common stretching exercises that we can do on regular basis. Stretching basically helps to warm up our body and it is very important to perform stretching before any exercise so that less stress can be put on the spine or back.
