It is estimated that only eight percent of people sleep on their backs. Sleeping on your back however, is by far the healthiest option for most people. It allows your head, neck and spine to rest in the neutral position and supports the natural curvature of your spine. This means that there is considerably less pressure on these areas; in fact, doctors recommend sleeping on your back if you suffer from chronic back pain.
It is also recommended that you should place a pillow or two beneath your knees, to further alleviate back strain in this position.
In this blog posting, we will discuss the best pillows for back sleepers.
