One sleep position can help your back feel better AND reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease: Lie on your side, knees bent, with a pillow between your knees. That’s what’s known as the lateral position. That position alleviates strain on your back. And new research shows side-sleeping helps remove damaging brain proteins that can eventually contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s. That’s because lying on your side improves circulation to your head and neck, and increases oxygen flow.
