Using positions to rest can be helpful in your recovery. We call this ‘constructive rest’. Changing position and resting in the daytime in between activity can be helpful. Lying on your side with a flat cushion between your knees can reduce tension on your back. If your back pain is on one particular side, many people prefer to lie on the opposite side for comfort. Similarly a pillow behind the knees if you rest on your back on a firm surface can be used to provide some pain relief.
