Recommended Sleep Position for Healthy Person

Orthopedic correct sleep is where you sleep in a position that doesn't cause undue stress to the spine, the muscular system or the nerves. You don't want to put undue stress on a certain part of the body. The position that I think works the best for most healthy people is the fetal position, where the person lies on either side, with the legs flexed toward the abdomen and the back also slightly flexed. This takes most stress off the spine and also allows the organs to spread themselves out so there isn't so much intra-abdominal pressure against the diaphragm. A pillow under the head or neck will deflect a lot of weight from the shoulder you're lying on, so there isn't pinching of the nerves that run from the neck into the arms.
