A BETTER NIGHT'S REST

Posted by TTN Palawan on

How to sleep if you've got.

Men typically sleep with two pillows on their bed, women with four.

Shoulder pain:

  • Avoid sleeping on the side with the painful shoulder. Sleep on your back. Or, if you sleep on the other side, place a big pillow at chest height and rest your arm on it, almost as if you're hugging another person.

Back pain:

  • On your back, place a pillow under your knees or a rolled towel under the small of your back to maintain the body's natural curve. In general, experts say sleeping on the back is best for this condition.
  • On your side, put a pillow between your knees for extra support. This is also good for people with hip and knee problems. A fetal-like position can help with lumbar spinal stenosis.
  • Sleeping on your stomach can be hard on your back and neck. But if you must, put a pillow under your pelvis and lower abdomen to help relieve strain.

Neck pain:

  • Try to keep the neck in a neutral position. Avoid sleeping on the stomach. too many pillows can put your neck in a bent position. And keep the pillow above your shoulders. Some experts suggest using a rolled-up hand towel to support the neck.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Snoring:

  • Sleep on your side or stomach to avoid the collapse of the tongue or tissues in the throat, which impairs breathing. One way to keep from rolling onto your back is to sew a tennis ball to the back of your pajama top.

Acid Reflux:

  • Experts recommend elevating the head with pillows or raising the head of the bed by placing bricks under the front legs. Otherwise, sleep on your side

Plantar Fasciitis:

  • It's important to keep your feet and ankles in a relaxed position with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the tissue on the bottom of the foot often caused by running or poor arch support. Avoid tucking in the sheets too tightly.

The most common sleeping position is on the side:57% of people at least start the night in that position, 17% lie on their back and 11% on their stomach. Most other people vary the position they start out with each night.
