“I woke up with it” is an amazingly common description of how low back pain started. (And neck pain. And headaches. And more.)

My article on this topic, 6 Main Causes of Morning Back Pain, is mature and polished, after many major updates over many years — and yet I have no doubt it will get more editorial love in the future.

Today’s update to that page is administrative: One small section of this article is now for members only, while 90% of it is free. If you really want to know about intervertebral discs swelling at night… “that’s how they get ya!” 🤑
(Another article that got a small new members section yesterday: Vitamin D for Pain.)
