The Best Position for Sleep

The Best Position for Sleep

Is there a “right” way to sleep? The simple answer is “yes”. There are three different positions to sleep in- on your back, your side or your stomach… but they aren’t all good for your body.

Your sleep position may put stress on your spine, causing back pain and neck stiffness. The best sleep position is on your back. Your spine and hips lengthen when back-sleeping, and your neck and back are supported with the proper bed and pillow (like PILLO1 cervical pillow which is unlike traditional pillows which push your neck forward causing neck pain).  Your lungs and your abdominal region will be free from pressure on your back, and should be more open and relaxed for proper breathing.

Sleeping on your side is the second best position. Spinal alignment won’t be negatively affected per say, but the spine may be in flexion, causing stress to the tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Sleeping on your side also might shorten your hip flexors, which may damage your back while you sleep. Side sleeping isn’t terrible for lower back pain, but it’s not beneficial for long-term or chronic pain.

Sleeping on your stomach is advised against. It may add pressure to your abdomen and chest, causing forced neck rotation and potential chronic pain.
