Tip of the Day

Dr. Howard Smith states, "We know that chronic pain causes people to lose sleep. This loss of sleep can magnify the pain messages that are sent throughout your body. When the pain-sleep cycle happens frequently, it becomes vicious and is hard to break without some intervention. Not only is attention to sleep hygiene important, but also stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine must be avoided. Regular daily exercise, including stretching and aerobic activity, can help to consolidate sleep and to alleviate other pain symptoms."
