Nighttime back pain can be frustrating. All you want is to lie down and get some sleep, but it seems like no matter what you do, your back will not let up. You spend most of your night trying to find a position that inflicts a minimal amount of pain so that you might be able to drift off for a while. You’ve probably even tried pain medication, but once it wears off, you’re awakened by a shock of pain throughout your back.
If you suffer from nighttime back pain — you’re not alone. At Marshalls Creek Wellness Solutions, we see lots of clients that suffer from nocturnal back pain. Don’t continue to lose sleep. Make an appointment at Marshalls Creek Wellness Center today for chiropractic care or massage therapy to start getting a better night’s sleep.
Many exercises, especially stretching exercises, can help strengthen your back muscles. You can make your own yoga routine incorporating positions designed specifically to help stretch and strengthen your back.
Regular exercise will also help you sleep better. Get a good workout during the day and then enjoy a nice hot shower to relax your muscles before you get into bed. You’ll be sleeping peacefully in no time.
Massage therapy has been proven to help relieve pain and speed up recovery time from mild injuries. It’s also a nice, relaxing way to help soothe back pain. Massage encourages the flow of oxygen throughout your body, which helps your body heal injuries quicker. It also loosens sore muscles. Massage therapy can also help with back alignment, which improves your posture, which is the number one reason for lower back pain.

Sleep on a Firm Mattress
While everyone’s preferences are a little different when it comes to the firmness of their mattress, firmer mattresses give your back more support. So, although you may be tempted to sink into a cozy, soft mattress — you won’t be doing your back any favors. And don’t forget mattresses should be replaced about every 8–10 years to ensure that your back is getting the best support possible.
Sleep on Your Back
Sleeping on your back with a pillow underneath your feet ensures that you won’t be putting any extra strain on your back while you sleep. Your spine will stay aligned all night long, allowing you to sleep soundly.
A chiropractor can help realign your spine and improve your posture. If you want to permanently relieve your nighttime back pain, you’ll need to understand what is causing it in the first place, and a chiropractor can find the underlying cause. Once your chiropractor helps to alleviate your nighttime back pain, they can give you exercises to perform at home to help keep the pain away.
