In Back Pain by Dr. Binyamin Rothstein0 Comments

Are you one of the millions of Americans that wake up every morning with back pain? Do you find that after being up and around for a little while walking or moving, or perhaps after a hot shower, your back feels better? Do you find that when you’re sitting for a while and you go to stand up, your back will start hurting?

Check out this 3-part blog post where we discuss your morning back pain.

Why Does Your Back Hurt in the Morning? Part 1

There are three basic reasons why this occurs. Today we will cover number 1:

1 – Clenching Your Jaws

You are clenching your jaws. People who clench their teeth tend to experience muscle spasms that makes his or her body feel as if it too is clenched.

When we clench our teeth, the body tends to lock in that position. If you are a teeth clencher, train yourself to keep your teeth slightly apart, or take 200mg of magnesium citrate twice a day to help relax the muscle tension in your jaws.

Parts 2 and 3

Parts 2 and 3 of this 3 part series on morning back pain are coming tomorrow and the next day. Check back!!


The good news is that now you have something to work on to help with your morning pain, and hopefully will begin to have wonderful mornings and feel rested after a good night’s sleep.

A Word of Caution

A word of caution – if your  pain wakes you from sleep, see your doctor. As a rule, when we rest we should not be experiencing pain.
