Prevention

Sleeping

  • Try not to sleep on your stomach, which arches your back and places pressure on your spine. If for some reason you can't avoid this sleeping position, place a pillow under your stomach to reduce the arch.
  • Lie on your back with a small pillow under your knees, or alternatively, lie on your side with a pillow tucked between your knees.
  • Ensure your mattress has optimal back support and is comfortable to you.
