If you suffer from backaches and pains in the morning, know that you are not alone. Millions of people struggle with this same problem, and work, stress, and age are not the only problems. Instead of just trying to ignore the pain and aches and go about your day while you are in anguish, consider how your mattress is contributing to your problem. You could potentially solve all of our morning aches by simply replacing your mattress with one that can support you properly.
Your mattress may not only be causing you to experience aches in the morning, but it can also lead to more painful problems and decreased mobility if you do not address the issue. If you are sleeping on an uncomfortable, saggy, poor quality mattress, it is likely that your spine is not aligned throughout the night, and your mattress can be causing you to develop poor posture and increasingly worsened body alignment. An uncomfortable mattress can also of course lead to inadequate sleep, which can lead to a series of serious health problems.
So, how do you know which mattress will solve your problem? While everyone’s body reacts differently to different mattresses, most find that a mattress with medium firmness typically provides relief from morning aches. The goal is to find a mattress that will support the body, and all of the pressure points and joints, while still allowing your hips and shoulders to sink in just enough for the spine to align. A great way to test a mattress is to lie down on your side to see just how much you sink into the mattress and if your spine is supported and straight.
The materials of the mattress can also have a major impact on the occurrence of morning aches and pains. Mattresses made of premium materials such as latex and memory phone have shown to be much more effective than most of their spring and coil counterparts. The higher quality materials, such as memory foam, allow for the mattress to frame the body and provide unique and customized support.
When replacing your mattress in order to alleviate your aches and pains, it is always important to test the mattress in person instead of relying on a review or recommendation. It is important for you to see first hand if you personally find the mattress to be supportive and comfortable for your body type.
