A good nights sleep is essential for good health physically and emotionally but having aches and pain may make it difficult to get a good nights sleep due to being awakened throughout the night not feeling well.
If you suffer from lower back pain, joint pain, or from an injury you may be having trouble sleeping due to discomforts. If you are not getting enough sleep it works against your body's ability to properly heal itself making all of your pain symptoms feel worse. In addition, you will have diminished energy, feel fatigued, get stressed more easily, be moody, get depressed, and have a weakened immunity being more susceptible to getting sick.
During sleep the mind and body is able to rest, relax, heal, and recharge. As a result, the body heals faster and restores sore and damaged muscles, the mind is able to relax which puts you in a better mood, and your immunity is strengthened.
Recommendations to improve sleep
1- Exercise such as stretching, walking, light weight lifting are essential for building muscle strength, improving flexibility, cardiovascular function and good health.
2- Epsom Salt baths to relax the muscle and relieve pain.
3- Deep breathing exercises to help relax the mind and body.
4- Meditation helps to relax the mind and body.
5- Massage to improve blood circulation, flexibility, get rid of pain, and helps relax.
6- Mattress and pillow should be medium firm, but let your personal preference guide you and choose what feels most comfortable.
7- Avoid getting to bed hungry or too full.
