Ever wake up and you feel a soreness in your back? You think, “I probably just slept on it wrong, oh well”. However, during sleep, our backs heal and relax themselves and a good sleeping etiquette is very important to guarantee this process. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, there are many ways to position yourself during sleep- but you should always try to keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned. Some other suggestions include...
For individuals who sleep on their stomach- a pillow under stomach or pelvis area to keep the spine in alignment.
For individuals who sleep on their back- a small pillow under the back of the knees reduces the stress on the spine.
For individuals who sleep on their side- a pillow between knees.
