What Mattress to Buy for Back Pain
Sleeping on the mattress not indicated may worsen or cause back pain. The lack of support to the back by the stated mattress causes terrible posture when sleeping, muscular strains and prevents keeping the end aligned in its natural position; all this contributes to increase back pain.
Choose for quality, not for the price
There is a wide variety of mattresses, some with more coils, others with a thicker filling, but there are some that are of better quality than others.
We always think, “The more expensive, the better,” however, a higher price on your purchase does not mean it’s a better mattress.
Always look at the quality and above all that you like and feel comfortable.
If a mattress does not satisfy personal preferences, the quality of sleep is sacrificed. A bed that is comfortable and provides the necessary support for the back helps reduce back pain.
Do not be fooled by advertising
You are presented with offers that make you leave out a good one, the advertisements and the popular rumor tells you to choose a hard one.
You should always be aware of the publishing techniques they use to sell.
Many mattress brands claim that a mattress is “orthopedic” or that it is “medically approved.” Until now there is no medical research or controlled clinical trials to prove that one mattress is more efficient than another.
That your mattress suits you, not you to him
Their designers try to make them comfortable to avoid back pain, as it is known that a bad mattress is one of the causes of back pain.
A good mattress will not take away a chronic pain if you already have it but it will help you to get comfortable so that the next morning you can get out of bed without neck or back pain. The mattress should fit your body, not you.
A hard mattress or a soft bed… What do I choose?
If you buy a very hard mattress, the next morning you will feel contractures and muscle tension in your shoulders, it will probably be difficult to mobilize.
If you choose a soft one, your body will sink into it due to a following lousy position of the spine while you sleep.
When you sleep, your back needs to be relaxed avoiding all kinds of muscular tensions. A mattress with a medium firmness, or a hard mattress with a soft pillow, will give your column a correct balance.
But in the end, the type of mattress will depend on you.
What kind of material do I choose?
If you choose one of springs or springs, if it is good quality it will have a firmness according to the number of springs or springs and according to its distribution, since some indicate a large number of springs located very close to each other, while others they have less quantity but more space.
The only defect of springs or springs is based on the fact that over time they tend to sink in the center. However, while in good condition they are optimal for their firmness, comfort and cushioning.
Latex as well as comfortable do not allow nesting of mites, so they are ideal for allergic people.
Viscolátex is also comfortable because the mattress adapts to your position while you sleep.
The viscoelastic is harder than the latex, but that hardness is between how hard you can be a spring and how soft a latex can be so that it will depend on your taste.
The foam is the least recommended because although at first seem to be comfortable in a short time tend to sink with the consequent damage to the health of the back.
Finally, water only has a decorative consideration, but sleep in one of them is not healthy.
Test the mattress before buying it
Ideally, when you decide your purchase, it is essential that you can try it at the store where you buy it. You can lie down on the mattress for 15 or 20 minutes to see how comfortable you are.
If you sleep as a couple, try that both try the mattress together and make sure that it is big enough so that both are comfortable.
For me, this is one of the primary tests when buying a mattress, as this will give you the guideline to decide if you felt comfortable and did not feel any discomfort in your back.
Buy a mattress of the recognized brand.
Although most brands have a ten-year warranty, it is the time to replace it with a new one. It is always good to buy a mattress from a recognized brand; this will ensure excellent customer service. I have gone through some headaches with some labels since they do not have excellent customer service.
And above all remember after using it for a particular time, try to turn it around at each change of season as a way to take care of it, as well as protect it with a cover.
I hope, and this guide has helped you to buy a mattress, any comment, suggestion or experience that you have lived, I invite you to share it.
