    Perhaps the best piece of advice I’ve ever received came from my back surgeon. He recommends that you use a towel. Roll it up and put it under your neck as you lay on your back. Tighten – or loosen- until it just elevates the back of your head off the mattress. That will apply traction to your spine and relieve pressure. Stay on it as long as you can, every little bit helps.

    No expensive pillows. Try it, you’ll like it!

    I fold my towel in half lengthwise, I roll it tight to about 4 inches diameter, and let the rest of it lay out under my back. It seems to stay together better that way and gives my shoulders just a bit of arch.
