Maintain good posture. Slumping your shoulders or
staying in positions in which your upper body is thrust forward (many people do
this to relieve back pain) disturbs the natural alignment between your facial
bones and muscles.
Don't sleep on the painful side of your face.
Avoid sleeping on your stomach.
When you sleep, use a single, flat
pillow or a specially designed pillow to help keep your neck and head in
alignment (ask your health professional about pillows).
