Hi Parvinder,
what is your age? what happened to you ? Is it due to any accident?
I think you should consult with your Doctor regarding the pain and or any other position in which you can rest.However you can do omkar pranayam and anulom vilom pranayama for relaxation.I can understand your condition.
Take care.
