Hi. For a few months now I have been waking up with a pretty sharp pain in my lower back. I found that all I have to do is stretch my legs out in front of me and bend over to touch my toes. This pops my lower back into place and then I feel fine.
At first, I thought my pillow was too large and stiff so I switched to a softer one. This didn't help. I also tried sleeping on my sides more, but I still wake up with the same problem.
I saw a chiropractor once and he recommended that I see him 3 times a week for a month and to make it stronger. I wasn't confident that would help so I haven't gone back yet.
I'm in my mid 20's and I stretch on a regular basis so I don't think it's tightness in my legs, but at this point I am open to any suggestions. I'm tired of waking up in the night and in the morning with this pain and it can't be normal to have to pop it into place every morning.
Thanks in advance for your help.
