What is acknowledged about the sleep and pain connection? It is known that sleep disturbance and depression influence the back pain patient’s outlook on life. Experiencing Southern New Hampshire back pain can be disheartening if it goes on for too long (more than 12 weeks) without relief as seen in chronic low back pain. (1) Current clinical guidelines all endorse exercise and physical activity for back pain sufferers. Researchers questioned if poor sleep prevents these patients from exercising. (2) Good question! Other researchers then described that such a disruption to sleep is associated with physical inactivity and depression.

Exercise is widely recommended to Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers in aiding their path to Southern New Hampshire back pain relief.
