PBA Tip of the Day brought to you by Dr. Lynn Karvanck, RN, DC (602) 993-2400.
What is the best position for your back when sleeping? Dr. Lynn has the answer!
Sleeping on your stomach is the worst position for your back and neck! You have to turn your head to the left or right, and that creates neck strain. Instead, either sleep on your back with pillows under your knees or on your side with pillows between your knees. Both positions help maintain the spine’s natural curvature. In both positions, sleep with a small pillow under your head and pull the pillow down so it’s also supporting your neck. Regular chiropractic care can help immensely with keeping your back healthy!
