San Francisco, Calif., September 20, 2012 – If you’re waking up with back pain, it may be due to the way you’re sleeping rather than a medical ailment. That’s according to renowned balance expert Jean Couch, founder of the Palo Alto-based Balance Center. "Misaligned bones create chronic tension," Couch explains. "We can alleviate tension and pain by sitting, standing, bending and sleeping differently. Practicing proper alignment in bed takes stress off the joints and allows the muscles to relax for a more restful sleep."

Couch offers these tips on optimal spine alignment during sleep.
