The Best Way To Sleep With Back Pain

Graphic of no pillow between kneesHave you ever dreaded going to bed because of neck or back pain? For some people this is an ongoing issue and it doesn’t always need to be. I have been teaching my patients with back pain how to sleep comfortably for over 30 years, and doctors for the past 10 years. 

The ideas that I am going to give you will work for virtually everyone so even if they sound like they aren’t for you just give them a try.

There is a lot of false information out there about the best way to sleep with back pain. in fact, I recently read an article in a women’s magazine purporting  to use a pillow between your knees. This is so wrong it hurts. 

The best way to sleep with lower back pain or neck pain is on your side. The first key is to have a firm mattress for back pain (without a pillow-top). Next is to use a pillow that’s high enough so that your whole spine and head are in a neutral position. When your body is in the right position like this your body relaxes, the pain eases, and you fall asleep easily.

Thank you for the very timely information. I totally agree about the amount of false information out there. I had also heard about putting a pillow between your knees to alleviate back pain but when I tried to do that the pain would just not go away. In fact it kept getting worse and I thought maybe I was doing something wrong so I asked my doctor and she advised me to stop using the pillow and recommended the same posture that you’ve mentioned.

Best Treatment for Back Pain – (Is There a Real Cure)
The best treatment for back pain is still yet to be discovered. It is admit-able, yes that there are treatments out there specially formulated for back pains but none has been proved a hundred percent no come back cure. They all help alleviate the pain, for a temporary period though which does not help much as these remedies are never free. This therefore creates financial stress and stress then leads to muscular back treatment, which in turn means more pain all in the intention of finding the best treatment for back pain.

Going to a massage parlor for a back massage sure will leave you feeling like you’ve had the best treatment for back pain but it can only be effective for a couple of days, and then what does one do after that? Maybe going for acupuncture would be another option. It is believed to be a very effective way of curing many pains, ails, and is said to be dated centuries back. Many people recommend it but yet again, it has not been proven a hundred percent effective.
