A flat surface
An orthopedic pillow
Obtain an orthopedic pillow. Drugstores usually have orthopedic pillows and these need to be firm and preferably made of some sort of foam like temper material. The pillow needs to be able to support and apply pressure on the spine gently.
Place the pillow under your neck with the slight bulge at the rear of the neck. Lie on your back with the top of your spine on the raised portion of the pillow.
Lie on your back with your neck on the pillow without moving with the bulge of the pillow exerting gentle pressure against your upper spine until you feel yourself starting to feel sleepy.
Roll over onto the side that is comfortable for you and this will exert the same gentle pressure on the side of your spine at the top, and this will gently realign the spine.
Do the same on the other side by rolling over as required.
Make gentle movements.
Check with a medical professional if pain persists.
Don’t jerk your neck in rapid movements.
