Just as a factory worker risks injury by working in the same position all day in a factory, you risk injury by sleeping in the same position all night.

For instance, sleeping exclusively on your right side can cause pain in your right shoulder. And always sleeping on your back can trigger back pain.

“Your body likes variety,” says Andrew Bang, DC. “For example, if you doze off while you’re on your back, you can switch from one side to the other during the night.”

Alternating between your back and sides is usually more comfortable and less stressful to the spine than sleeping on your stomach.
