Sleeping essentials for a healthy back [Video]

If you want to get a good night’s sleep without back pain, thereĀ are a few things you’ll need to take care of first. You could be your back’s own worst enemy and not even know it.

The mattress can be an obvious culprit. You’ll need to find a bed that has the right combination of firmness, size and materials for you to put the least possible pressure on your lower back.

At the same time, sleeping posture is also crucial. Sleeping face down is generally not considered healthy, so try flipping over or rolling onto your side for less strain. But don’t forget a supportive pillow!

Do you have a good mattress and the right posture and still feel pain? It’s time to contact a professional chiropractor.
