We commonly hear about correcting our daytime posture but your nighttime posture could be as detrimental to your body. The National Sleep Foundation says that your sleeping position can have an impact on your slumber whether it be negative or positive. The best position to sleep in, say the sleep experts at the National Sleep Foundation, is “on your back”. Sleeping on your back is the most natural and pain-relieving position. According to Medical News Today, sleeping on your back can rid you of your chronic lower back pain issues and if you sleep with a pillow in between your knees you are supporting the natural curves of your spine and therefore helping you relieve back pain issues. Now for some of us, we start on our backs but end up tossing and turning into different sleep positions. The best way to solve this issue is to put pillows on either side of you and under your knees while you sleep. This way, you can train your body to stay in one position throughout the night.
There are numerous sleep positions we can take during the night, and whatever fits you best and is most comfortable will be what your body ultimately chooses. The best way to feel relaxed, get a better night’s sleep and reduce pain in any of these positions is to make sure you have a comfortable and supportive pillow for your head and neck. The Water Pillow by Mediflow is the only pillow that is clinically proven to reduce neck pain and increase your quality of sleep. The Waterbased technology in our pillow will move with you while you sleep which allows for constant support of your head and neck in any position.
