If you deal with back pain often, the culprit could be your mattress, say experts at Simmons Bedding Company, one of the most widely recognized authorities on mattresses in the world. Most mattresses don't offer the level of support needed to keep your spine properly aligned during sleep. To get an idea what they mean, they suggest that you stand with your shoulders and heels against the wall and your back straight. There should be two parts of your body that don't touch the wall - your lower back and the tops of your thighs. When you lie down on a mattress, those parts of your body don't get the benefit of support on standard mattresses. That's why Simmons designed their line of BackCare mattresses especially for people who experience sore backs and aching muscles from lying on the wrong mattress all night long. BackCare mattresses are made using Simmons Zone Support system, a combination of Pocketed Coil support and special foam zones that is designed to offer just the right level of support to your entire body. BackCare mattresses take into account the fact that your lumbar region needs special support to help keep your spine aligned so that you get a more restful sleep that doesn't put a strain on your back. They're made with a combination of three comfort zones and two support zones so that your body is cradled and supported throughout the night, and you wake up refreshed and restored in the morning.
