Lower Back Pain? Try a Bolster

Do you have dull, nagging, chronic back pain that starts from the moment you get out of bed? Give this a try.

Prop yourself up with either a rectangular, round bolster or 2 pillows. If you sleep on your back, place the bolster or pillows under both knees. Lifting your knees above your hips will round your lower back and can relieve pressure and tight muscles helping your aching back relax.

Sleep as long as you can in this postion. If you wake up and need to roll over, just place the bolster or pillows between your knees (if it's too much, just use 1 pillow).

These bolstered sleeping positions are great for runners since they'll relieve tension and soreness in tired, well exercised legs.

Sleep is when your body repairs itself. So while the bolsters may not cure all that pains you, they might help you sleep through the night. That might just be the first step toward a pain free morning.
