Why Use a Knee Pillow?

Why Use a Knee Pillow?

The most common sleeping position is on your side, with you legs and hips aligned and flexed. Because this position leaves your upper leg unsupported, the top knee and thigh tend to slide forward and rest on the mattress, rotating the lower spine.

According to the U.K. Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, which conducted a survey of 1,000 people, approximately 41 percent sleep on their sides in a fetal position. Women are twice as likely as men to sleep this way, as per the results.
