Did you know that your sleep position can affect your health? From back pain to acid reflux to snoring, there are a number of ways that sleep positions can impact your wellbeing. Here’s some helpful information about each of the most common sleep positions from Johns Hopkins Medicine:
- Sleeping on your Back comes with a number of pros and cons when it comes to your health. If you’re concerned about wrinkles, sleeping on your back is the best position to help prevent these from appearing. In addition, if you suffer from lower back pain, you should probably be sleeping on your back. However, sleeping on your back is not ideal if you snore or suffer from sleep apnea.
- Sleeping on your Side can decrease or increase your acid reflux symptoms, depending on the side. If you suffer from acid reflux, sleep on your left side and NOT your right. If you suffer from sleep apnea or you snore, then sleeping on your side can help to open up your air passageways. In addition, sleeping on your side is best when you are pregnant.
- Sleeping on your Stomach can help to improve sleep apnea and snoring, like sleeping on your side. However, sleeping on your stomach can worsen any neck or back pain that you may be experiencing.
When it comes to your health and sleep positions, you have to weigh the pros and cons of each sleep position and also take into account your own personal health needs. It’s also a good idea to talk to a medical professional about your health issues and how your sleep position may improve or worsen these issues.
If you’ve tried sleeping in every position, and you still wake up sore each morning, then maybe it’s time for a new mattress. So, come to see us at Factory Mattress and Bedrooms in Rocky Mount, NC.
