Is Morning Back Pain Caused By Sleeping Wrong?
It’s believed that morning back pain is as simple as making sure your sleeping position isn’t making things worse.
This makes sense but remember, 98% of what you do while sleeping is out of your control.
So if sleeping on your stomach is a problem, you can only do so much to consciously keep yourself off your belly.
So what do you do?
There is definitely a discussion around sleeping positions, but I prefer to first focus on what you can control.
These are bedtime routines, daily habits, workout habits, and morning routines.
These are treasure troves of opportunities to eliminate potential pain amplifiers that keep your morning back pain coming back.
What Is The Best Sleeping Position For Back Pain?
When finding the best sleeping position for back pain, you must do some trial and error.
Odds are, the positions that cause sensitivity while you are awake will more than likely cause pain while you are asleep.
This means if twisting the low back while awake hurts, sleeping in a twisted position will create the same level of sensitivity, especially if you stay in that position for hours and hours.
So instead of finding the perfect position, experiment with getting into and keeping yourself in the ideal position to support a good spine position.
This is especially true when you are in the high-sensitivity phase of your recovery.
As you become less sensitive, your ability to sleep in different positions will increase, but that has to be earned.
Base your ideal sleeping positions around the positions that bring the least amount of sensitivity while you are awake.
