Insomnia Caused by Back Pain

Insomnia Caused by Back Pain

Suffering from chronic or severe neck or back pain can have a number of debilitating impacts on your life. One of the most frustrating of these is insomnia. Chronic pain can often make sleep very uncomfortable and difficult, generally preventing patients from getting the quality rest they need. Nearly 80 percent of all American adults will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives or another. If you are one of these people and are also suffering from insomnia, we understand the urgency you feel in understanding your condition and finding relief.

How are they connected?

Neck and back pain are two of the most common types of pain experienced by adults. Studies show that nearly two thirds of all back pain sufferers report having sleep trouble. Generally, the sleep deprivation is caused by the high level of discomfort and pain. This can result in trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep or even trouble reaching the ultimate deep sleep.

What can you do about it?

Insomnia generally includes a number of sleep issues. If your insomnia is caused by your neck or back pain, the best way to treat both your pain and insomnia is by treating your underlying conditions. Dependent upon the level of your conditions that are causing your insomnia, the first recommended form of treatment is generally conservative in nature. This type of treatment can include stretching, massage, physical therapy or low-impact exercise. Your doctor may also recommend trying different medications to assist you in gaining better quality of sleep.

Minimally invasive surgery

For some patients, conservative options will not succeed in alleviating the chronic pain and symptoms that are causing the insomnia. For these patients Laser Spine Institute offers effective minimally invasive procedures as a successful alternative to traditional open surgery. If you are suffering from insomnia related to your neck and back pain, do not hesitate to receive a second opinion. Contact Laser Spine Institute today for more information.
