Causes of Morning Back Pain

People under age 60 can develop disc herniation which is a young person problem, versus generally those over 60 or 65 who have developed more deformity or changed the shape of the spine, says Dr. Georgiy Brosuvanik, Spine Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida.

About the morning back pain, the specialist says when people get up from a comfortable bed, joints have not really seen the body weight and they’re in that least stretched position.

“The initial stage involves stretching of the joint capsules and that’s frequently what produces this flexed for posture in the morning and the lower morning back pain,” he says.
