Below are some of the positions that help ease back pain:
- Lie on your back with a pillow or two under your knees.
- Lie flat on your front. If this position is too painful, try again with one or two pillows under your hips. As your pain eases, remove the pillows so that you are completely flat.
- Lie on your side with a pillow between your knees. Sometimes a rolled-up towel around your waist also helps.
- Sitting is often very uncomfortable so it is best to only sit for short periods. If you have to sit it may help to sit on an upright chair with a small rolled towel placed between your lower back and the chair. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/back-pain/
