Try a body pillow. We recommend trying our Down Alternative Body Pillow. 20” x 60” in size, our body pillow is the support you need. Placing it between your knees, allowing it to rest along your trunk, will take the pressure off your back during the night.
- 10" Gel Memory Foam Mattress[/caption] Discover a new mattress. Many of us here at eLuxurySupply swear by the 10” Gel Memory Foam Mattress. Getting away from an old-bumpy mattress can make all the difference in the world. Unlike traditional mattresses, the 10” Gel Memory Foam Mattress rids you of the box springs that cause a lot of strain on your back.
- Try switching your sleeping position. If you sleep on your side, draw your legs up slightly toward your chest and put a pillow between your legs. Use a full-length body pillow if you prefer.If you sleep on your back, place a thin Down Alternative Hypoallergenic Pillow under your knees to help maintain the normal curve of your lower back. You might try a small, rolled towel under the small of your back for additional support. Support your neck with a pillow. Sleeping on your stomach can be hard on your back. If you can't sleep any other way, reduce the strain on your back by placing a pillow under your pelvis and lower abdomen. Use a pillow under your head if it doesn't place too much strain on your back. If it does cause strain, try sleeping without a pillow under your head.
Use a pillow effectively. Make sure you are supporting your neck efficiently. Avoid resting your shoulders on the pillow will also help your sleep. We here at eLuxurySupply recommend our Extra Soft Down Pillow by ExceptionalSheets.
Change to new sleep habits. Avoiding certain habits before bed will reduce back pain as well. Avoiding alcohol and caffeine and alcohol before you head to bed will improve you morning strain. Creating a friendly sleep environment and talking to a physician about sleep medication is another way to improve your “sleep hygiene.”
