Are you waking up with knee, hip or low back pain? You may not notice your posture while you are sleeping but waking up with pain in your joints may be because of the position you are sleeping in. This is why it is important to be conscious of correct spinal alignment while resting or sleeping and aware of ways to encourage good sleeping posture. It might be time to look at a quad cushion.
What causes this pain?
Knee, hip and low back pain can be especially prevalent for side sleepers. This is because when you sleep on your side as all your weight is placed on one side. Which may cause pressure on our knees and hips. This pain is also commonly experienced by pregnant women, people with sciatica and people with arthritis when they sleep on their side.
What can be done to relieve the pain?
We recommend to our patients that they place a pillow between their knees when they are lying on their side. This helps to realign the hips and corrects your spinal alignment. Also, placing a pillow between your knees helps to take the pressure off your joints and relieves any pain caused by your knees knocking against each other throughout the night.
