Sleep your way to a healthier spine

To give yourself the best opportunity to heal from a spinal problem it is essential to give your spine and nervous system quality time to rest and heal. The most obvious recovery time for your spine is your sleep time. However, it can be hard to control how restful and rejuvenating your sleep is.
