I used to suffer from neck and back pains. I would wake up in the morning feeling sore all over. My mom told me it was because I used a lot of pillows when sleeping. My dad said it was because of my sleeping position. Apparently, I have been sleeping in the wrong position for years.
After talking to my dad, I did an online research about the right sleeping positions that can help prevent neck and back pain. I found a lot of useful information but became really interested in a list of different sleeping positions. These two sleeping positions each contribute to a relaxing, rejuvenating and pain-free sleep.
For people who like sleeping on their sides, the side sleeping position with contoured pillows is an interesting option. If you sleep in this position, your spine will remain in its natural shape.
You can also use a contoured pillow if you prefer to lie on your back. Unlike the traditional pillow, the contoured one will support your neck and lower back, thereby preventing the muscles and spine from being pressured.
These are just two of the sleeping positions that have helped me stay away from neck and back pain.
