Sleeping on your back puts approximately 50 lbs of pressure on your spine!
Putting these simple tips into practice may help prevent or alleviate your neck or back pain.
- Place a pillow under your knees while lying on your back or a pillow between your knees when lying on your side
- This can reduce pressure on your spine by nearly half!
- Invest in a firm mattress!
- This distributes pressure from the body more evenly, which causes less pain when lying down or after getting up.
