How should you sleep if you have lower back pain?

Lower back pain affects a person’s daily life as well as their sleep. Moreover, poor posture can worsen the scene. Here are a couple of solutions:

1. Sleeping on the back with knee support

Lying on the back is the best sleeping position where this position evenly distributes weight the full length of the body’s whole surface. It also ensures good alignment of the head, neck, and spine. For this, you just have to place a small pillow under the knees which can provide additional support.

Sleeping in the fetal position

For people who have a herniated disc, adopting a curled-up fetal position might bring relief during the pain. To adopt this sleeping position, one should get into bed and slowly roll on to one side and then place a pillow to support the head and neck. Keep the knees up towards the chest until the back is relatively straight and try to sleep on the front with a pillow under the stomach.

Sleeping on the back in a reclined position

Sleeping in a reclined position helps to ease the lower back pain, particularly in people with isthmic spondylolisthesis. If a significant relief is found from resting in a reclined chair, it may be worth investing in an adjustable bed which will help in the lower back pain.
