stiff neck in the morning
Truly, I am trying to follow the 8 steps because I so desire pain-free living, but it seems that with each step I try, I encounter a glitch. Last night I attempted the stretchlying. When I woke up in the morning, my neck was so stiff and I was in pain. Help!! What am I doing wrong? I used to sleep with a cervical roll under my neck but I have done away with that since reading your book. However, I wonder if I could try stretchlying with a neck roll? Any suggestions? Thank you!!

1. Be careful not to do too drastic or sudden a stretch on your neck.
2. If your neck has a lot of curvature, you can't expect it to straighten out overnight. A cervical roll may be appropriate for you although I usually recommend bunching up the pillow under your neck since you can mold this to the right height/shape. The main point is you don't want to increase whatever curvature you currently have in your neck; you just want to support your neck to the extent that it isn't left suspended mid-air.
