The importance of a good mattress

A mattress plays a major role in the quality of your sleep. Specifications differ from brand to brand, but a qualified sales person should be able to help you select a mattress that will be best for you. You may need a new mattress if you get up in the morning with a sore back which goes away as you move around – this means the mattress is no longer giving the support you need.

It is important to note that no mattress will cure a real back problem. A bad mattress will make the condition worse, while a good mattress may help to ease the pain and discomfort.

Some mattress tips to prevent restless tossing and turning.

  • The old story that the firmer the mattress the better for you has been shot full of holes. A hard mattress is death by pain for arthritic patients. These folk need a softer yet supportive feel for the sore joints and back, with enough comfort to choose any sleep position they are comfortable with.
  • Folk with lower back problems need a medium to firm mattress to support the bottom of the spine.
  • Invest in a good pillow to support your neck and the top of the spine.

Mattresses are a specialized science – ask the salesman for advice if you are unsure of anything.
