Are you a side sleeper? If so, is your pillow worn out, or has it become thin and flat? When side sleepers have a thin pillow, it offers very little support for the neck and shoulder. Invest in a high quality, thick pillow made for side sleepers. You might be surprised how much better you will feel simply by changing your pillow!

 

2.  Omega-3’s

This might seem strange, but the omega-3 fatty acids  found in fatty fish can go a long way toward reducing pain.
