When choosing the right bed there are so many different things you need to consider, including the mattress. When it comes to the mattress it’s all about surface area and pressure. The more of your body that is in contact with mattress, means the less pressure on your hips and shoulders. If you choose the right mattress for you then no matter what position you sleep in, you will be comfortable. A good mattress can provide comfort and support, and therefore help to relieve back pain. You don’t want to bed just because it says it’s good for your back, everyone has different requirements for a bed. Orthopaedic tends to mean extra firm, nothing medical, when it comes to mattresses. You will want to find a bed which is supportive rather than firm, often a medium firm bed with cushioning is best. Most mattresses need to be turned regularly to avoid wear and tear, if this is too difficult for you, then you may want to get a mattress which won’t need turning as often.
When it comes to the pillow it only depends on the position you sleep in, as you want to try keep your neck in line with your spine to avoid it feeling achy. If you sleep on your back you will want a softer pillow, your front a very flat pillow and your side a firmer pillow. Then with your mattress it’s all about surface area and pressure, because the more of your body that is in contact with the mattress, mean that there’s less pressure on your hips and shoulders. A good mattress will be able to provide comfort and support, which will help to relieve back pain. We spend almost a third of our life sleeping, which is why it makes sense to spend time and money on the right mattress so you sleep well. People tend to think you need to get an orthopaedic mattress but actually if it’s too firm then it can cause hyperlordosis. Hyperlordosis is when the spine in your lower back has an excessive curvature. You should be looking for a mattress which is soft enough that you can sink into it but firm enough to provide you with support. To find the right bed you will want to start looking around local bed places such as The Bedroom Place.
