Four (4) Recommended sleeping positions to try if you have lower back pain, as well as some other things you can do to get a better night’s rest.
Check Out The Below Position:
No. 1> Sleep On Your Side With A Pillow Between Your Knees:
- Allow your right or left shoulder to make contact with the mattress, along with the rest of that side of your body.
- Place a pillow between your knees.
- If there’s a gap between your waist and the mattress, consider using a small pillow there for added support.
- Whether you use one pillow or opt for two, you should resist the urge to always sleep on the same side. Doing so many cause issues like muscle imbalance and even scoliosis.
No. 2> Sleep On Your Side In The Fetal Position:
- Lay on your back and then roll over gently onto your side.
- Tuck your knees toward your chest and gently curl your torso toward your knees.
- Remember to switch sides from time to time to prevent any imbalances.
No. 3> Sleep On Your Stomach With A Pillow Under Your Abdomen:
- Place a pillow under your pelvis and lower abdomen to relieve some of the pressure off your back.
- Depending on how this position feels, you may or may not choose to use a pillow under your head.
No. 4> Sleep On Your Back In A Reclined Position:
Do you feel most comfortable snoozing in a recliner? Although sleeping in a chair may not be the best choice for back pain, this position can be beneficial if you have isthmic spondylolisthesis.
Consider investing in an adjustable bed so you can sleep this way with the best alignment and support.
