Why is Back Pain Worse In The Morning With A Herniated Disc, Bulging Disc or Fusion

To answer this for your specific situation, we need to break down what you’re currently going through. So keep that in mind when reading this. 

What I would rather you do for now is think about how this applies to you and your body or back situation. 

While you sleep, the spaces between your vertebrae, also known as your “discs,” fill with water so when you first wake up and before gravity takes its toll on the body, typically any symptoms due to the injury will be highlighted. The increase in space between the vertebrae often causes irritations or sensitivity to the already sensitive area. 

For this exact reason, I suggest you follow the 5 critical steps t the perfect morning back pain routine, especially with any disc injury or post-fusion.
