6. You’re sleeping wrong

“Sleeping in a bad position can cause back pain, people who sleep on their back should put pillows under their knees. People who sleep on their side should put a pillow between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position and people who sleep on their stomach should stop because it causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back.
