The Science of Sleep Posture

There’s a seemingly endless series of articles all telling us to get more sleep and yet very few that give any direction on how to improve the quality of our sleep. James Leinhardt joins us to discuss the topic of “sleep posture”. Along with improving the quality of our sleep he asserts that better sleep posture brings a host of other benefits including better spine health, general wellbeing and reduction in neck and back pain. Ultimately better sleep posture will mean waking up rested and free of pain. Yes please!
