What Sleep Positions are Healthiest?

What Sleep Positions are Healthiest?

July 21, 2015

Sleeping is a natural activity programmed in us to rest and recharge our body and mind. But are there worse positions to sleep in than others?

In an infographic posted last month that was adapted from work done at the Cleveland Clinic, it appears that certain sleep positions can be associated with increased strains to certain body parts and lead to chronic pain.

For certain conditions such as neck pain, low back pain, and hip pain, sleeping on your belly appears to increase strain in these affected areas and cause more pain.

Whether it is the neck, hip, or low back pain, SimpleTherapy offers additional exercise therapy programs to help relieve stiffness, improve the strength and flexibility of these achy joints.
