There are quite a few discussions historically on this, so yes.
Eg

#metoo
I found a chiropractor helpful, and it's been long enough to have a go

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your back troubles. Absolutely not fun. One of those things that you never fully realize how much you use until it hurts.

As far as after, therefore because. Hard to say. I know I had upper back / shoulder pain from the rib spreaders. Beyond that, it’s been 13 years since my last. Things get a bit fuzzy over time. Is it because of time in the table, or just getting older? Mostly lower back these days so I assume it’s age.

I get a bad back occasionally that wakes me up after 7 hours asleep. I sleep on my belly facing my right arm. I have a pinched nerve that can get irritated. Sleeping with a thin pillow helps. Getting up and doing my exercises for the pinched nerve helps too. I now do the exercises before bed too.
