Did you know that how well you sleep can affect how well you recover from back pain? Our team at our Hounslow family chiropractic clinic are warning back pain patients about the effects of poor sleep. Put simply, getting regular quality sleep is an important part of treating back pain, and your body will be more equipped to recover from an injury when you adopt healthy sleeping habits.
Even the way you wake up in the morning is important. If you jump out of bed as soon as your alarm starts ringing, you’ll be at risk of putting strain on your entire body. It’s a good idea to set your alarm ten minutes before you need to get up to have time to do some light stretches. This will help to wake up your muscles after hours of rest.
Don’t underestimate the healing power of quality sleep. Your back health depends on rest and restoration.
