Improve Your Posture While Asleep
Despite its name, the spinal posture mattress (or the orthopaedic mattress) works to properly align the spine during sleep but is not intended to fix one’s posture problems. One of the effects of sleeping on a posture mattress, however, may be improved posture, just like sleeping on a lumpy and sagging old mattress can aid ruin one’s posture.
Other benefits include reduction in body stiffness and aches. Some people also find that sleeping on a posture mattress helps them to get a better night’s sleep.
If you suffer from back pain in the mornings, neck and shoulder stiffness or pain, or have a bad posture that causes stress on your body, chances are that an orthopaedic mattress is a smart choice for you.
Perfect Posture Guaranteed
Your posture and shape when standing provides correct spinal alignment. When you lie down the posture and shape is changed due to gravitational forces and the inability of your bed to alter the level of support when required from shoulders to hips.
An orthopaedic mattress’ technology allow you to change the level of support along the bed until the weight and shape profile match and you get the support your body needs to uphold proper posture.
The support system that fits under the mattress is just as important as the mattress itself. A sturdy box spring is usually required to properly support a posture mattress. Old or worn-out box springs can sag in certain areas. This causes the mattress above to sag, which in turn creates an uneven sleeping area. This kind of sleeping surface, like an overly soft mattress, can cause the exact problems that a posture mattress is supposed to resolve.
Note that some manufacturers do not provide warranties for mattresses that are used with old and sagging bed boxes if they deem your old bed frame incapable of proper support of the new mattress.
Choose a Mattress That Suits You Best
The most outstanding benefit of an orthopaedic mattress is a significant reduction in aches and pains. Research suggests that over 60% of people wake up in the morning with some form of back pain. The use of orthopaedic mattresses has proven to significantly reduce and prevent aches and pains.
Consult with your medical doctor and Bedworks store staff before you buy an orthopaedic mattress. A doctor will be able to assess one’s specific spine-related issues and posture issues and recommend a mattress as well as a firmness level.
