Sleeping's a right pain in the neck.

ALMOST one in three people experiences back and neck pain after a night's sleep, while most feel stiff or ache, research suggests.

A poll of more than 2,400 people for the British Chiropractic Association found 30 per cent believe sleep triggers back and neck pain and 42 per cent had been kept awake by the pain.

Some 83 per cent said they feel stiff or ache when they get up in the morning. The BCA is urging people to check their mattress is supportive enough but also says they should try out pillows before they buy. The survey found 33 per cent of people change their mattress only once a decade despite recommendations to buy a new one every seven years.
