The Most Common Sleep Positions

Share

Do you wake up with back pain? Toss and turn throughout the night? Your preferred sleep position may be the culprit. Sleep experts suggest sleeping on your side to decrease the chance of interrupted sleep and to rest more comfortably. This sleep position aides in maintaining a neutral posture while taking pressure off of the spine. The same benefits can be achieved with an adjustable base or bed wedge. However, if you prefer other positions there are ways to ensure a restful sleep. Depending on your sleep position, knee spacers can also alleviate back pain by supporting the natural curve of your spine. This helpful infographic presents some more insight into the different sleep positions.
