Leave Back Pain out of your Sleep Life

July 25, 2021 | Comments Off on Leave Back Pain out of your Sleep Life

Sleep and chronic back pain don’t mix And while chronic back pain obviously prevents people from sleeping, the lack of sleep feeds back into chronic pain by heightening stress levels and preventing the body from getting the rest it needs to fortify itself against chronic pain in the first place.

Sitting All Day Is Unnatural Humans weren’t made to just sit. We were made to stand, to walk, run, jump, twist, turn, bend, lay down, roll, crawl, climb, squat, and maybe, for a few minutes a day, to sit. But at a certain point in (very recent) history, our jobs became seated, our entertainment became…
