Back pain that makes it difficult to sleep at night can be particularly troubling because it not only prevents you from entering the critical restorative stage of deep sleep, but it also has shown to worsen back pain. As a result, back prevents you from sleeping, which leads to more back pain. To help break this vicious cycle, the chiropractor can diagnose the cause of chronic back pain and take steps to alleviate it. An ensuing discussion about your mattress and pillow may also identify if they are contributing to sleep loss. If so, a medium-firm mattress is more likely to improve the sleep quality of those suffering from chronic back pain than a firm mattress.

P.S. A mattress that is too hard will create gaps between it and your body, causing the areas of the body that contact the mattress to develop pressure points that restrict blood circulation, leading you to move around to restore circulation.
