Are your sleeping habits causing back pain? Whether it’s falling asleep, staying asleep or experiencing a solid, fluid good night’s sleep altogether, the quality of your slumber can be severely affected by back pain. One of the issues with the relationship between sleep and back pain is the inability to diagnose which root leads to which cause. Is back pain causing poor sleep or is it the other way around? What many people don’t think about is how a simple change in sleeping posture can help eliminate back pain the next day.

While other variables play into your chronic back pain, why not potentially resolve one of those aspects. By knowing the contour of the spine, good and poor sleeping habits, you can actively contribute to the bettering of your back pain. Below is a helpful video of Dr. Frank Bono of the BioSpine Institute displaying good sleeping posture.
