How can I prevent pain while sleeping?

To help prevent pain while sleeping, make sure your mattress is on the firm, less-saggy side, and choose sleep positions more likely to bring comfy sleep and pain-free mornings: on your back with a bolster or pillow under your knees, or on your side with your knees slightly bent and a pillow between them. For your neck, choose a pillow that keeps it aligned with the rest of your spine, rather than at a crooked, muscle-stiffening angle.
