Which is the best sleeping position?

The best sleeping position by far is either on the back or the side, both of these positions support the spine and the neck, leading to a more restful night's sleep and helping to prevent injuries in the long run.

In the back sleeping position put a pillow under the knees, placing the legs in a more direct line with the lower back spine so that it's flattened against the mattress and receives more support. It's best to keep the arms down at your side, not sprawled over your head.
When a person is laying on either the left or right side, it's best to slightly bend the upside leg and place a pillow between the knees. This keeps the pelvis in a straight line and prevents unnatural twisting.
