I have an unusual problem. Several years ago I had unsuccessful shoulder rotator cuff surgery and could not sleep on a bed. I slept on a recliner for these years. I was getting a lot of low back pain when standing which would go away when I sat down.I now have a hospital bed which I incline a little when I sleep. However, I am still getting the low back pain which still goes away when I sit down. Should I not be lying on that incline, even though it is slight? Please advise. Thank you.

Knitted ankle support incorporating an anatomically contoured silicone insert lying posterior to the medial and lateral malleolus and over the front of the foot. Used to reduce swelling and soreness.
