I have posted a topic about my "crooked torso" 3 days ago.. http://www.spine-health.com/forum/lower-back-pain/crooked-torso and I have read many times here to NOT lay on the stomach, as that stretches the spine in the opposite of its natural shape. I have just started laying on my stomach, because I was tired of laying on my back for 3 days, and need to use my laptop this way. This is the most comfortable for me, and gives me the most relief, and even enables me to walk around do things for 20 or so mins, before it flares back up. Usually I only get about 5-7 mins before flare ups. Now I see these people all agreeing that one shouldn't lay on ones back (not w/o a pillow under the waist) but it helps me to lay flat. Which way should I lay?

Laying face down with lower back injury?
