Trying to get to sleep when you’re dealing with back pain can seem impossible. If you’re one of the many who toss and turn all night without relief, it’s possible that leveraging your body with pillows could be a solution.
Even if you can’t say ‘proper pillow posture’ three times fast, you can benefit by understanding the connection that could improve your sleeping habits.
