Proper Body Mechanics

For proper positioning in all body functions, one should strive to be in an anatomical neutral position or neutral stance. Proper positioning needs to be practiced until it becomes a habit. 

It is important to constantly self-monitor body posture and adjust when necessary. The neutral position places the least amount of stress to the body. Strive to sleep in the anatomical neutral position to allow your muscles and ligaments of the back to relax and heal during your sleep.
