A Surprising Cause of Back Pain

How dark is your bedroom when you sleep? Believe it or not, if it’s not dark enough, it might cause you back pain!

Even when we sleep, our bodies can detect the amount of light in our surroundings. If there’s too much light, we don’t get the kind of deep sleep our bodies need. Sleep helps relax our muscles, especially our back muscles. It also gets rid of lactic acid, which contributes to back pain. On top of all that, the less sleep we get, the more susceptible we are to feeling pain. Add all of that up and lack of sleep can be a significant contributor to chronic back pain.

Make sure your bedroom is as dark as possible.
