Video: Which Sleep Position is Best?
Watch this video to find out how sleeping in different positions may make some medical conditions better (or worse)…
…although it’s most important to sleep in a comfortable position so you get the best sleep possible.
Most people sleep on their side. It’s a good position for:
- Acid reflux
- Heart conditions
Sleeping on your back may help with:
- Spine alignment
- Back and neck pain
- Nasal congestion
Back and side sleepers should sleep with a pillow under or between the knees to relieve joint pressure.
Stomach sleeping may improve:
- Sleep apnea
This position can put a lot of pressure on muscles and joints, however.
A good night’s sleep is good for your health. Sleep well!
