Why do you recommend sleeping with a pillow between your legs?

  • One of the main benefits of sleeping with this type of pillow is to prevent the hips from rotating and the body from shifting while you sleep.
  • It also generates a lot of comfort, since it eliminates the tension in the muscles of the back and the pressure exerted by the upper leg.
  • Another important plus is that it relieves lumbago or sciatica pain, as well as possible muscle stiffness that leads to contractures.
  • It forces the correct anatomical alignment for the spine, hips, legs and knees.
  • These pillows also benefit the blood circulation in the legs, and help prevent the appearance of possible varicose veins.

The best position to sleep

Experts point out that the fetal position is the most beneficial for the body, as it favors glymphatic drainage, which is responsible for purging waste from the central nervous system. In addition, the fetal position prevents obstructive sleep apnea, that is, the happy snoring.

This position also prevents gastric reflux, which is very common in those who sleep on their backs, and finally relieves the discomfort of those who suffer from lower back pain. The fetal position is the healthiest position for pregnant women.
