Yesterday, I woke up with some neck pain from sleeping. This isn’t the first time it happened to me. Actually, I experience this kind of pain a couple of times a year.
A few years back, I found an effective exercise that helps me overcome my neck pain from sleeping quickly. So if you ever woke up with neck pain, then make sure you give the exercise below a go.
In this video, I will explain what to do about neck pain from sleeping.

I’ll get Andrea to demonstrate.
She takes a seat and does a specific trigger point work in the muscles where the neck pain is located. Many times when you wake up, you got a kink in your neck. There is a kind of a knot in that muscle and you want to loosen that up.
Let’s say it is in the right side. You are going to take your hand, put into the muscle, and look for that sensitive area. You are going to push on, and it should be a little bit uncomfortable. If it is really uncomfortable, move to the edges of that discomfort. Press on it and when it subsides, look around in the muscle for another sensitive area. Work through the muscle going for four or five points. You are going to do that throughout the day and it will subside the tension or the neck pain that you have from sleeping.
The most important thing is that you don’t overdo it because the muscle gets irritated. Four or five times would be enough, give it a break and then go through it again in two or three hours. This will help decrease the tension in your neck. It will also deal with the trigger points in that muscle and help you overcome your neck pain.
