sleeping on arm

As a physical therapist I see many people with shoulder pain.  One thing I tell them to avoid is sleeping like the man pictured above.  This compresses the shoulder over a long period of time and can cause or worsen shoulder pain.  When you sleep on your side make sure your head is supported by a pillow and keep your arm at your side.  If this doesn’t help then see a physical therapist or orthopedic doctor.
