What’s the best position to sleep in with a bad back?
Apr. 05, 2023

If you have a bad back, it's important to find a sleeping position that can help alleviate your discomfort. Here are some sleeping positions that may be helpful:

  1. Sleeping on your back: This can be a good position for those with back pain as it allows your spine to rest in a neutral position. Place a pillow under your knees to help maintain the natural curve of your lower back.
  2. Sleeping on your side: If you prefer sleeping on your side, try placing a pillow between your knees to help keep your spine aligned. You may also want to use a firmer pillow to support your head and neck.
  3. Sleeping in the fetal position: This position can help alleviate back pain as it can reduce the stress on your lower back. Curl up on your side with your knees drawn up towards your chest and a pillow between your knees.
  4. Sleeping on your stomach: While this position is generally not recommended for those with back pain, if you must sleep on your stomach, place a pillow under your hips to help reduce the strain on your lower back.

Ultimately, the best position for you to sleep in with a bad back will depend on your individual needs and preferences. It may take some trial and error to find the position that works best for you, but incorporating some of these tips can help you achieve a more comfortable night's sleep.
