I am wanting to find some strengthening exercises for my back. I think this is what I need to help me with pain I am experiencing.
I only get the pain when I sleep at night, I go to sleep with no pain and wake up in the middle of the night or early hours of the morning with pain in my lower back, usually to the right hand side.
I got a new bed and mattress thinking it may be my old bed/mattress causing the pain. I have also tried sleeping with a pillow between my knees on my side and varying pillow height for my head to no avail.
I was wondering if there are any specific exercise I could do strengthen my back in the hope that this will help me to reduce the possibility of pain occuring.
I am overweight, but I have always been overweight but this is a new problem. I am not doing any new exercising or anything different than usual. My only thought is that it could be related somehow to when I pick up my daughter because she is getting older (and heavier) now, but if that was the case why would I not get the pain all the time.
