sleep position for back pain

Who among us hasn’t woken up because they slept in an unfamiliar position, causing neck or back strain? If you sometimes wake up with pain, it helps to sleep on your left side.

First of all, sleeping on your left side can relieve tension in your spine. The more pressure you put on your back while you sleep, the harder your muscles have to work to keep everything in place. By going a little lower when you sleep on your left side, you improve blood circulation. This has a cascading effect that can reduce inflammation associated with tight muscles.
