Less Painful Positioning
Joseph A. Abboud, MD, and Soo Kim Abboud, MD, coauthors of No More Joint Pain, contend that sleep ing on your side is better for your back because it produces less curve
in the spine.
Also helpful: a firm mattress that supports your lower back.
Tucking your legs up a bit and placing a pillow between
your knees can help keep
your spine comfier, too.
