Why Memory Foam Helps Back Pain
Every year, more and more Americans are seeking professional help in their quest to eliminate their back pain. Professionals, including physicians, chiropractors and sleep specialists unanimously agree that the building block to improving back pain starts with your mattress. More important than simply replacing your mattress is to replace it with the correct mattress. Dr. Arya Nick Shamie, MD, professor of orthopedic surgery at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center explains that “the mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position, one in which your spine and head are supported in proper alignment.”
Why a Memory Foam Mattress is Right for You
Memory foam mattresses offer many advantages that traditional innerspring mattresses simply cannot. Think about it: would you rather sleep on a surface made of plush, contouring and gentle foam, or would you rather be sleeping on metal coils? Aside from the obvious, memory foam mattresses will mold to your body throughout the night, thereby eliminating the pressure points that build up on innerspring mattresses. By absorbing your unique body shape, a memory foam mattress will make you feel as if you’re floating on your own cloud.
The world-renowned sleep expert and author, Dr. Michael Breus notes that “If you have a hard time getting comfortable, if you have chronic fatigue or some type of muscle pain, then a memory foam mattress would work well for you.” Plus, Nature’s Sleep memory foam mattresses offer full spine support, providing proper alignment and thus relieving back pain that results from improper alignment while sleeping.
Enhancing a Memory Foam Mattress with an Adjustable Base
For those suffering from severe hip or back pain and have more difficulty getting into bed or getting out of bed, then an adjustable base would be an ideal complement to a new memory foam mattress. Adjustable bases give you the ultimate control over your position while asleep. Only specific mattresses will work on an adjustable base, as the mattress has to be bendable (memory foam, latex, or air). Imagine the ease of reading a book or watching TV without the inconvenience of pillows and blankets propping you up. Adjustable bases are fully controlled by you, and with the touch of a button you can have your head and feet elevated to that perfect position.
When to Buy a New Memory Foam Mattress
Although most mattresses will technically last for many years, that doesn't necessarily mean you should keep it forever. “Our bodies change over time, so the mattress that was once a joy to sleep on may no longer feel comfortable a few years down the road,” explains Dr. Breus. You may never have considered the hygiene of an old mattress. Think about all the dead skin, hair and bacteria that your body transfers, night after night, onto your mattress. That build up, over time, can lead to worsening allergies. Speaking of allergies, all Nature’s Sleep mattresses are anti-microbial and hypoallergenic, and you’ll experience tremendous sinus relief as well. So when’s the best time to buy? Now. Now. Now. We can't stress enough the importance of upgrading to a memory foam mattress today. With all these life improving benefits, don’t delay and act today!
