Health Tip Of The Week

Sleep position: What's best for your back?

To prevent back pain, sleep curled on your side, with your knees bent up toward your chest. To help keep your spine aligned properly, you may want to place a small pillow between your knees. Lying flat on your back or stomach may contribute to back pain by arching your spine beyond its normal curve.
