If you suffer from aches and pains in your back, the extra level of support found within an Orthopaedic Mattress may be exactly what you need to alleviate those issues and find a restful nights sleep.
Typically, orthopedic mattresses are firm or extra firm, and give special attention to your spine, helping to maintain its natural alignment. The spring systems are also designed to take pressure off the heavier parts of your body, such as the hips and shoulders, so you feel much more comfortable as you rest.
Why choose an Orthopaedic Mattress?
Over the course of our adult lives, we tend to lose a few inches in height, as our joints become worn and the distance between each of our bones compresses slightly, as cartilage is worn away. Although this is a common and unavoidable process, some of us suffer from this worse than others, with arthiritis and back pains becoming the likely symptoms.
Aches and pains are the result of your natural body weight being supported by these weaker joints and your muscles having to work harder in order to compensate. Posture also suffers as your daily habits when walking or moving, adapt to avoid pain, but again putting extra stress on other parts of the body.
A decent orthopaedic mattress, will help you to 'reset' your body every night, meaning that even if you accumulate the odd ache or pain during the day, it'll do its best to help you start the day without them.
Why is Firmness Important?
Orthopedics is a medical study of issues that concern the spine and joints, and with this in mind, the design of orthopedic mattresses has been influenced by the findings and recommendations provided. Having a firm mattress is one such recommendation, as it prevents the middle section of your body sinking as much, as you lie down. This in turn prevents your spine from becoming bent in an unnatural way.
Being firm however, isn't the only consideration taken into account with the design of an orthopaedic mattress, as the spring systems and the fillings just beneath the surface also provide additional benefits. Pocket Springs and PostureTech systems allow your body weight to be evenly distributed, alleviating pressure usually placed on the lower lumbar. Some of these mattresses also contain Memory Foam, which supports the natural curves of your body and reduces movement during the night.
