Beware! Back pain may also "sleep" out!

Beware! Back pain may also "sleep" out!

Posted by Guopeixin on

According to the National Institute of Health, 80 percent of adults will experience low back pain in their lifetime.

We spend an average of 8 hours a day in bed, which means that a person spends a third of their time sleeping. It's easy if you maintain the same posture

If you already have low back pain and sleep in the same position for 8 hours, it will

Therefore, people with low back pain should allow the spine to assume a natural neutral position when sleeping, including the back, buttocks and pelvis. To achieve this goal, you can make good use of pillows to keep the spine straight and reduce the pressure on the back. Here are some things to try:

 Adjust sleeping position

Sleeping position one:

 Sleep on your side with a pillow between your feet on the inside of your knee

 

 Sleeping position two:

When lying on your back, use a pillow or towel under your knees

 Also need to pay attention to, avoid sleeping on your stomach! Sleeping on your stomach will put most of the pressure on the cervical spine, which will affect the alignment of the spine.

Choose the right mattress

However, if you have tried the above two correct sleeping positions, but still feel discomfort in your waist, there may be a problem with your mattress. People with chronic low back pain should look for a mattress that feels firm to the touch to provide adequate support for the back.

Therefore, it is worth spending some time testing and trying different mattresses until you find one that reduces your back pain. In general, relatively firm mattresses are recommended for people with back pain, but some people may find that they are actually better suited to a softer mattress. So you still have to choose according to your own situation. And the mattress needs to be turned every few months to keep the load even and balance wear.

 Adjust your waking position

 For people with severe low back pain, when you get up, you should slowly lift your body, first roll to one side, then slowly push your legs up with both hands, put your legs to the edge of the bed, and put them on the ground. Try not to bend too hard at the waist, as this can strain your back when getting out of bed.

Of course, if there is nothing wrong with the waist itself, you can sleep however you like. If you only use one posture for a long time, it will definitely affect the health of your back and back, and you need to adjust it. Just switch postures more often.
