Do you toss and turn all night because of back pain? If so, you're not alone. Millions of people suffer from back pain when they sleep. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to reduce the amount of pain you experience.
In this quick guide, we'll discuss a few tips on how to improve your sleep quality and reduce back pain.
What causes a morning back pain
Have you ever woken up with an aching back? It's not just because of old age or the way that one side of your body is heavier than the another. The main reason for this type of pain while we sleep can be due to certain habits before bedtime, such as sitting down all day long at work and then sleeping on our desks!
Some of the main reasons related to sleeping that cause back pain are:
Pregnancy: This is a very common problem that generally appears during the last two or three months, and this pain can worsen after a long period of sleep.
Your sleeping position: The proper sleeping position can help you to avoid pressure on your spine, which may cause its natural curve to flatten. This generally happens when people sleep on their backs or belly without taking into account what type of sleeper they are.
A bad or old mattress: Mattresses are not only for comfort, they also have an important role in supporting your back. A bad mattress or an old one (more than 10 years) wont give your spine a good support, leading to chronic pain and discomfort that will ruin the quality of life as you know it!
What to do to reduce your back pain during night
While not a solution in itself, understanding what is causing your back pain and taking action to solve it can help you live a happier life. When you have less discomfort from head-to-toe you will experience an increased quality of life as well as better physical performance!
These are things you can change to help reducing or eliminating your back pain:
