Greetings forum folks,
Just purchased a hammock and should be arriving in a couple days. I registered on the forum for some advice on hanging. I decided to give sleeping in a hammock full time a try.
One of the main reasons I am doing so is because of a herniated disc in my back that I have had for the the past 11 years or so. For the most part it isn't too bad as I exercise and stretch quite often. The major issue I have is with my sleeping position. Sleeping on my stomach causes issues with my lower back muscles, which I feel also causes me to toss and turn pretty often. I have always been a stomach sleeper as long as I can remember. I have using pillows as an option to keep my on my back during the night, but I always tend to wake up on my stomach still.
Hoping that using a hammock will help keep me off my stomach during the night and provide some lower-back muscle relief. I also have always loved laying in a hammock, but have never owned one.
