What can cause back pain when I sleep?
Feb. 18, 2023

There are several possible causes of back pain when you sleep, including:

  1. Poor sleeping posture: Sleeping in an awkward or unsupportive position can cause back pain. For example, sleeping on your stomach can strain your neck and lower back, while sleeping on your back without proper pillow support can cause lower back pain.
  2. Worn-out mattress: A mattress that is too old or worn out can also cause back pain. It's recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years or when it starts to lose its shape and support.
  3. Incorrect pillow support: Using an incorrect pillow that doesn't provide enough support to your head and neck can also cause back pain. For example, if you sleep on your side and your pillow is too low, it can cause strain on your neck and upper back.
  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or arthritis can also cause back pain, especially when you are lying down.
  5. Poor sleep habits: Poor sleep habits such as staying up late, using electronic devices in bed, or consuming caffeine or alcohol before bedtime can also lead to back pain.

If you experience persistent back pain while sleeping, it's best to consult a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatment.
