  • Start your day with 2 minutes of stretching - most people don't stretch enough, while it's a very natural (paleo) behaviour and helps a lot in repositioning the whole body

  • What do you sleep on ? Check that your mattress is firm, and of good quality, that you have enough room to move, that your pillow is not too soft, etc.

  • Try some light fitness exercices for strenghtening your back muscles - don't overdo it, you would only make it worse

What do you do all day?

Do you sit at a desk for your job? Try making a standing desk. I thought for well over a year my morning pain was my mattress. Switched to standing all day and the pain vanished.

I will say, my pain was not extreme, and I only spend 2-3 hours a work week sitting. The diffence was still huge. Even some of my coworkers started standing.

Strengthened my back muscles and core. Loads of articles about standing desks.

Sounds like you need to adjust your sleeping position to me... Have you tried that yet??

I highly recommend this book by Esther Gokhale.

8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back: Natural Posture Solutions for Pain in the Back, Neck, Shoulder, Hip, Knee, and Foot. http://j.mp/19z1dF9

She also provides instruction on proper sleeping position.

You can see a talk from her here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yYJ4hEYudE
