Can lack of sleep be causing your low back pain?

Can lack of sleep be causing your low back pain?


Over the past decade , people are having less and less sleep

The prefrontal cortex is the judgement area of the brain, and it seems to be sensitive to sleep loss

REM periods of sleep occur usually between 7 and 8 hours of sleep

The national sleep foundation has calculated the amount of sleep we get has dropped 20% in the last hundred years

This 2021 study found that there was evidence showing that self reported sleep quality and total sleep time where correlated with Low back pain reduction

Are Changes in Sleep Quality/Quantity or Baseline Sleep Parameters Related to Changes in Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Non-specific Chronic Low Back Pain? A Systematic Review.

Chang R, Wang X, Lin G, Samartzis D, Pinto SM, Wong AYL. Clin J Pain. 2021 Dec 23. doi: 10.1097/AJP.0000000000001008.

Results: Of 1,995 identified references, six articles involving 1,641 participants with CLBP were included. Moderate-quality evidence substantiated that improvements in self-reported sleep quality and total sleep time were significantly correlated with the corresponding LBP reduction. Low-quality evidence showed that self-reported improvements in sleep quality were related to the corresponding improvements in CLBP-related disability. There was conflicting evidence regarding the relation between baseline sleep quality/quantity and future pain/disability in patients with CLBP.
