Instinctive Sleeping Postures
I was looking for some info on primal sleeping positions and came across this interesting article linked on the MDA forums. I’m trying to finally eliminate lower back pain that has been bugging me for a few years now (desk jobs suck). Less time sitting and more functional training seems to be helping but waking up in the morning is when the pain is at its worst. I’m guessing it’s down to further compression of the lower spine as I already have a hyper lordosis problem.
Avoiding sleeping on my stomach seems to be making a difference as has going from two pillows to one. Maybe no pillow is the next step? The articles gives a nice insight to some more natural sleeping and resting positions. At the moment I’m probably closest to the “junk protection” position but with one arm under a pillow. Will try experimenting with the different postures and see if they are more comfortable.
