The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says low back pain is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost work days. Too many people wake up in pain.
What causes the pain? Back pain is most often caused by improper bending, twisting or lifting followed by improper care, such as sleeping on the wrong bed.
When upright, your spine can support your body without actually using the back muscles. But you pay a price for this luxury. The supporting muscles remain weak from inactivity. They don't develop enough to provide support when you need it, such as when your spine is fighting a bad bed to maintain its natural alignment.
