Mattresses For Better Health

Finding the right mattress could be beneficial to your health.

Do you suffer from back or neck pain? Perhaps you have trouble sleeping or wake in the morning with itchy eyes or a runny nose. All of these problems could be helped if you buy a new mattress.

Did you know that your mattress is past its best once its 10 years old? Most of us keep our mattresses for longer than that, but ideally, you should be thinking about changing your mattress at this point. Your mattress provides most of your support at night and after this length of time, your mattress is likely to be sagging and the filling unevenly distributed. This in turn means that your mattress is likely to be letting you down, causing or exacerbating any muscular or joint problems you may have.

Whilst, in general, a new mattress will certainly improve your comfort and aid your sleep, there are specific types of mattress that are designed to provide extra support and comfort:

Orthopaedic mattresses - whilst you can get specially-made orthopaedic mattresses, many manufacturers provide firmer, supportive mattresses that give the spine the protection and pressure reduction it needs. These mattresses are often manufactured with a high coil count, making the mattress slightly firmer and more responsive to the position and movement of the sleeper.

Memory foam mattresses - originally developed for use by astronauts, memory foam's properties allow it to mould to your body position by sensing the heat your body produces. Now used by most mattress manufacturers, and also often by hospitals and care centres for those people who need support whilst bed-ridden, memory foam can give you the head-to-toe support you need.

If you suffer from chronic back pain, speak to your doctor or consultant about the recommended mattresses available. Try out a variety of mattresses in your local showroom to see which types suit you best and then look online for the best prices. If your old mattress is letting you down, it's time for a mattress that will give you a new lease of life.
