What are the healthiest sleeping positions?

It Depends: There aren't "healthy" and "unhealthy" sleep positions from a pure sleep point of view. If you have sleep apnea, sleeping on your back worsens the breathing event. Heartburn patients should sleep with their head elevated to reduce symptoms. In pregnancy, sleeping on your side is preferable, especially in the third trimester.

Sleep on your back: Try sleeping on your back. You can use pillows to train yourself to sleep on your back. It will take a while before your body gets used to it.

What feels good to: You? Sleeping on your stomach usually requires you to have your head turned to the side for hours & makes it difficult to keep the spine in a neutral position. It also puts pressure on joints & muscles. Sleeping on your back can aid the head & spine to maintain a neutral position. The next best is sleeping on the side.

Pressure: Try to keep your head elevated to reduce pressure on your shoulder and in keeping your spine straight. A pillow e tween your legs will also reduce hip pressure. Both will help to minimize any joint problems from sleeping on your side.
