These Tips Will Help You Keep Your Back Healthy and Your Hip Pain-Free in Your Sleep

Instructions for a painfree sleep
  • We recommend hard mattresses for your back because a hard surface gives the spine the necessary support and tension to remain straight.
  • If you want to escape the embryonic position and thus the back pain trap, it is also essential that you lie on your back and do not bend your legs. Keep them stretched out instead.
  • To stretch properly, you should also sleep without a pillow. Only then can your cervical spine resume the position, in which it is able to straighten the rest of the spine.
How to adjust
  • Don’t be discouraged if your muscles ache intensively after the first few nights, and your symptoms are getting worse. Your body is in a phase of transition and has to get used to the new sleeping position and body posture slowly.
  • After a few weeks, you will find that it is easier for you to sleep on your back and without a pillow and that your back pain will be significantly better.
  • If you wake up at night and find that you are back in the lateral or prone position, no problem. Just straighten your back again, stretch your legs, and go back to sleep. Have a good night!
Quick Guide
  • Lie flat on your back with your legs stretched out.
  • Use a hard mattress.
  • Do not use a pillow or other head rests.
  • One step at a time: Changing sleeping positions is a major adjustment.
  • Give yourself and your body time!
