Back Sleep With Heals Off the End of Bed

This article, found at my website’s “Health Information” page speaks and is titled “The Importance of Good Sleeping Posture” http://www.drsaracino.com/PDFs/INFO/ThePostureOfSleeping.pdf

If one sleeps on the back which I recommend, without a pillow under the legs which the article recommends because it decreases pressure on the low back, it is best to allow the heals to protrude off the end of the bed!

This will allow more of the weight of the calves to contact the mattress, prevent the legs from not rotating outward and the knees from extending.

For Good Health,

Dr Saracino
