People are experiencing lower back problems. Scientists are suggesting that this pain may be caused by sleeping positions for prolonged periods of time. It is determined that sleeping on one’s left side can be better for one’s digestive tract than sleeping on the right side. It is also suggested by these scientists that sleeping on either side will cause back pain. This is due to the uneven posture the person is then putting on themselves.
- Statistics indicate 42% of UK denizens have problems with back pain.
- Sleeping prone, on the belly, compromises the back’s natural curves, according to Dr.Sarah Brewer.
- While back and neck problems are best mitigated by sleeping on the back, only about 8% of Britons do so.
“New research has found bad sleeping positions can trigger a range of health problems, including back pain.”
