How To Relieve Morning Body Pain and Stiffness

Updated on June 19, 2011

Morning Body Pain and Stiffness

I'm  one of those people who would just love to jump out of bed in the morning but find this to be almost impossible to do because of my body pain and stiffness?

Do you also find it difficult to get right out of bed or does it take you several hours to limber up and become flexible?

What are the Key Contributors to Morning Body Pain

Many doctors hear this complaint from their patients who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, arthritis, rheumatism and they hear it takes longer to rebound after physical exercise. Did you know there are key contributors to your morning body pain and stiffness.

Lack of physical activity, a poor diet, being overweight, improper sleep and environments that are cold and damp are the major causes of morning body pain. Why?

  • Exercise - Lack of daily exercise prevents your body from releasing good endophins and your blood doesn’t move as well leaving toxins in your system.
  • Diet - Weak muscles are a result of a poor diet high in simple carbohydrates. It also contributes to bad posture and lethargy. Being overweight puts strain on your joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
  • Sleep - Sleeping posture can put your body in a bad position for hours. Being in a bad position causes a reduced blood flow to your muscles and a buildup of lactic acid causing stiffness.
  • Environment - If your environment, whether work or home, is cold or damp, it can cause your muscles to stiffen. Cold and damp have a direct effect on the way blood flows throughout your body.

Steps to Relieve the Body Pain

Are you reaching for those morning relaxants to get you going?  In some instances reaching for the ibuprofin or naproxen is not necessasry.  There are other ways you can achieve the same relief. Here are a few tips that will make a big difference in your morning body pain and stiffness.  They are just easy little things you can do to help relieve the pain.

  1. Make sure you get a good nights sleep.  This helps the body repair and recharge. Sleep on your side or back and try not to sleep on your stomach as it causes unnecessary stress on the lower back.
  2. Keep your bedroom free of drafts.  If it is cold, think of using a space heater or some extra blankets.  Cold and dampness will stiffen your body.
  3. When you wake up, consider some easy stretching while you lay in bed. This helps to loosen your muscles and increase the blood flow.
  4. A hot shower is a way to promote sweating, enhance blood circulation and release muscle spasms. Just stand under the hot water and relax.
  5. Once out of the hot shower, do a few gentle knee bends.  It helps to get the morning blood flowing.
  6. Drink plenty of good quality water. It is recommended drinking bottled water or reverse osmosis filtered water.
  7. Dress appropriately for cold weather.  Remember, cold causes muscles and joints to stiffen.
  8. Exercise on a regular schedule, if possible.  Simple routines work and improvse the morning body pain and stiffness.
  9. There are natural supplements when the body pain and stiffness become acute or particularly bothersome.  Take safe and natural supplements, like Paractin and Biofermented Hyaluronic Acid (Bio. HA). Both are found in the supplement Hydraflexin.

Just following a few of these tips and lifestyle changes can help with your morning body pain and stiffness.
