At Factory Mattress & Bedrooms in Greenville, Rocky Mount, Wilson, Shallotte, Kinston, and Goldsboro NC, we want to stress the importance of rest. Whatever position you sleep in, there are pros and cons. Here are the pros and cons of 3 popular sleeping positions.
PROS: This is the proper way to sleep for spine and neck health because the back isn’t forced to be contorted. Mattresses are also typically just for this position. This also is a great position because the face isn’t squished up against a pillow, thus less wrinkles!
CONS: Oftentimes those that sleep on their back suffer from frequent snoring-this is because gravity forces the base of the tongue to collapse into the airway. Sleeping on the back can also closely linked to sleep apnea later on.
2. Side Sleeping
PROS: This is the most common sleeping position. Most Doctors recommend this style of sleeping, especially during pregnancy as it helps with circulation to the heart. Side sleeping also can help with heartburn and acid reflux.
CONS: This position can put pressure on the stomach and lungs. Also, depending on what side you sleep on, you can face temporary arm-numbness, because you can restrict blood flow and press down on your nerves. You may also be putting a lot of your body weight on your shoulder which can strain your neck and shoulder muscles.
3. Stomach Sleeping
PROS/CONS: While this position is good for snoring, it’s terrible for everything else. This position leads to a lot of back and neck pain because your spine is contorted. Denying your spine a neutral position throughout the night can lead to a lot of back issues. Also you may be putting pressure on your muscles and joints. You may need to train your body to sleep in another way.
