Have you ever noticed your sleeping position? Many of you must be knowing about your sleeping position. If you are facing the problem of the shoulder, joint or hip pain, or any other pain, then you are in dire need of observing your sleeping position and changing your mattress according to your type. There are three types of sleeping positions stomach, back, side, or maybe many people might have a combination of these three. Newsweek.com reviews are best to have a detailed know-how of all these categories.

Stomach Sleepers:

          Stomach sleeping position is undesirable and seemingly inappropriate and is never recommended by medical experts. For such sleepers, backache is most likely to occur, soft mattresses are never recommended for stomach Sleepers with abdomen downward and neck bent on one side. If the mattress is soft, there would be chances of the person sinking in bed, leading to the stretching of the spine resulting in back pain to be more severe.

  It is recommended for stomach sleepers to use a skinny pillow to avoid angling of the head and neck. As to prevent force application on the spine, it’s good to use a pillow under the pelvis to avoid pressure.

Back Sleepers:

      If any person has neck pain, it is recommended to sleep in the back position, and it is suggested to use a proper thick pillow such that your neck has no pressure felt on it. People who sleep in this position can suffer from lower back pain, and the tongue can block airways, making the snoring condition worse. One significant advantage of backs sleeping is preventing wrinkles caused due to side I r stomach side sleeping posture.

       It is suggested that back sleepers use the firm mattress as in the Back sleeping position; a person is putting its weight on a mattress at once, so a firm mattress is required, which gently contours to the outline of your body.

Side Sleepers:

This sleeping position is considered to be the best and famous one. This posture has many advantages, including it provides the best circulation to your heart and is considered the best and safe sleeping position for pregnant women. The only problem a person can feel in a side sleeping posture is that it can have needle-like pains in the arm, mainly due to less blood flow to it as it is bearing the weight of the whole body. Such a position helps to maintain the spine straight, so you have fewer chances of developing lower back pain and the best posture if one wants to eliminate the snoring problem.

            Side Sleeping also has some shortcomings that can lead to acne formation if the pillowcase is not changed frequently. For side sleepers, soft Mattresses are best as they rely on the pressure on sensitive pressure points, so side sleepers should sink a bit in bed to relieve some stress on pressure points.
