Different types of back conditions

The pressure on your spine is relieved as the facet joints open up. Otherwise, you can also sleep in an adjustable bed or on a reclining chair if you cannot sleep sideways in a traditional bed. This will elevate your head and knees thereby relieving the pressure on your facet joints.

      ·      Degenerative disc disease: If you suffer from such a disease then you will get enough relief when you sleep on your stomach. The disc space this way will experience less pressure. Usually, doctors suggest the patients suffering from degenerative disc disease to sleep on a comparatively firm mattress and to place a flat pillow under their hips and stomach for added comfort and also for further opening of the disc space to reduce stress on your lower back. Sometimes, you may also be suggested to use a wedge pillow when you sleep on your back to keep your upper body elevated slightly. You may also sleep on an adjustable bed with your knees bent slightly.

     ·      Spinal Stenosis: If you are diagnosed with this condition then it is best to sleep in a fetal position on your side s with your knees curled up. This way the nerve root will experience less pressure. On the other hand, you may also sleep in an adjustable bed or a reclining chair that will keep your head and knees elevated to relieve the pressure on your nerves.

     ·    Bursitis: This is the condition when there is an inflammation in the bursa located over the hips. This is commonly known as the greater trochanteric bursitis in medical terms. If you sleep on a mattress that it very firm you will aggravate the condition as it will increase the pressure on your hips due to the firmness of the mattress. To stop the pain from aggravating, buy a pillow top mattress. The extra padding on the surface will reduce the pressure on your hip.
