Chronic Back Pain and Sleep


Chronic Back Pain and Sleep

When chronic back pain disturbs your sleep night after night, you might despair of ever getting a good night’s sleep. But experts say that with proper treatment, the chances are very good that you can get relief from chronic back pain and enjoy normal sleep.

Why Sleep Is Important When You Have Chronic Back Pain

The inability to get a good night’s sleep hurts — literally. Chronic back pain prevents you from getting a good night’s sleep. You wake up hurting even more.

Pain interferes with the normal cycles of light and deep sleep you need in order to wake up refreshed. The disruption is called “alpha delta sleep disorder.” When back pain prevents you from getting adequate deep, or delta, sleep, you awaken in the morning tired and hurting.
