How you sleep has a considerable effect on your day to day health, happiness and wellbeing. That’s why it’s vital to take your time when looking for a mattress – and to invest in the one that best matches your requirements.
Sleeping on the wrong kind of mattress, or one that is old, worn or lumpy, is one of the major causes of back pain. If you have an existing condition that causes your back to ache and twinge, this can be exacerbated by the state or design of your mattress too. Here are a few examples of the top types of mattress recommended by the specialists at Dreamers Bed Centre to help prevent or soothe back pain.
Unlike open spring mattresses, these particular designs feature individual fabric compartments that house each and every spring – meaning that they all move independently and respond to the precise distribution of your body weight. As a result of this, instead of the pressure applied to a single point of the mattress creating a knock-on effect whereby the whole surface shifts, ruining your perfect sleeping position and causing you needless aches in the morning, your body will be perfectly supported – however you prefer to lie.
It also means that if you share your bed with a partner who is much heavier than you, the disparity in your weights will not cause you to roll into them – plus, thanks to the flexibility of the mattress, restless sleepers will not so easily disturb those next to them.
Based on a product that was originally invented for NASA, memory foam is a super-smart construct, formed mainly of polyurethane. The foam responds to your body heat and the pressure you apply to it, moulding around you and cradling you in your favourite sleeping position without any need for springs. If your back pain is triggered or exacerbated by a mattress that is too hard or resistant, memory foam may just be perfect for you.
Medical grade foam performs in much the same way as memory foam, with the exception that it does not require body heat to function. While you gradually sink into the memory foam as your body warms the mattress – a sensation that some prefer – others enjoy a mattress that allows them to immediately achieve their ideal position and be gently supported there, without any need to wait for a reaction to heat.
In fact, some medical-grade foam mattresses even have a cooling feature, for those who hate to be too hot at night. Some are also hypoallergenic, for maximum comfort.
Many of the above mattresses are available in a range of firmnesses or densities, allowing you to select one that perfectly suits your needs.
