Husband started putting pillow?

So all was well now my husband is putting a pillow between his legs when he sleeps? Is that normal cause he said his back hurt this morning so why the pillow?

Superb Opinion

  • If you sleep on your side, the weight of your top leg tends to make you put one leg behind the other, and THAT makes you tilt your pelvis - and your back - to the side. If you have lower back pain or injury, this will cause pain and stiffness that will continue well into the next day. The solution for this is a pillow between your legs, which helps keep your back straight. My dad is a chiropractor - he's given lots of people this same advice, because it works.

  • A pillow between your knees while sleeping on your side helps stretch the hamstring, which can help relieve back pain. It's perfectly normal, although I suspect not many people do it.
