Sleep and Back Pain

Articles researched and written by Sally Ann Quirke, a fully qualified professional chartered Physiotherapist based in Ireland.

Are you exhausted from sleepless nights due to back pain?

Do you suffer from Back Pain while Sleeping (or TRYING to sleep)? I feel so much for my clients whose sleep is interrupted, and often prevented, through the back pain.

Some of this empathy comes from my own experience - when I injured my back badly and suffered with sleepless nights for far too long! With the knowledge I have today, I would have acted very differently with my night pain over 20 years ago!

I have dedicated a whole section of this web site to help back pain patients and sleepless nights. I hope it these articles are of value to you.
