Good posture while sleeping is also important as it is possible to strain your back even in the most restful positions.

INCORRECT CORRECT
Pillow to high places strain on neck, arms and shoulders. Small pillow under neck and knees keep
the head and back in a good position.
Do Not Use Large Pillows While Sleeping Use Small Pillows While Sleeping
Sleeping face down will aggravate swayback. When sleeping on your side, bend your knees to help flatten the back. Place a pillow between the knees.
Do Not Lay Face Down While Sleeping Lay On Side With A Pillow Between The Knees
