Have you ever woken up with a dull pain lingering on your back? Have you experienced sleepless nights because of discomfort on your lower back? You may be using the wrong mattress.
What type of mattress is best for back pain?
Not all mattresses are created equal. A study by researchers from Kovacs Foundation in Spain suggests that a medium firm mattress had better outcomes for pain in bed, pain upon rising and disability than a firm mattress. The Harvard Medical School suggests testing a variety of foams to know which is best for you. Lounging on a mattress for a couple of minutes in the showroom might not translate in quality sleep. You can try sleeping on different types of mattress at a hotel or in a relative’s or friend’s home.
You don’t have time to go mattress testing? No worries. Here are five of the best innovations in Uratex Philippines’ Orthocare collection.
The advantages of an orthopedic mattress cannot be understated. It can help back pain sufferers sleep better and improve their posture. An orthopedic mattress is also more economical because it lasts longer than other types of mattress. The Orthocare Balance, a premier Uratex mattress, is recommended by the Philippine Orthopaedic Association for people with orthopedic needs. It is made of convoluted high density foam (replace with Orthofirm foam) that provides relief and back support. The Orthocare Balance also features Tencel knitted fabric that absorbs heat from the body, making it easier to attain uninterrupted sleep at night.
One of the benefits of this orthopedic mattress is its anti-bacterial feature that protects against bacterial growth, odor, mildew and dust mites. You can be assured that you wouldn’t need to replace this mattress regularly, saving you money.
The World Health Organization regards stress as the “health epidemic of the 21st century.” Stress is linked to a number of conditions including fatigue, anxiety and depression, and cancer. The fast-paced lifestyle in modern societies is partly blamed for the millions of stressed out adults and kids worldwide. An effective way of reversing the impact of stress on your physical and mental health is to achieve at least seven hours of quality sleep each night.
The Orthocare Biorytmic is not merely a mattress for back pain; it restores and regulates the body’s biorhythm balance through special natural minerals. It can reduce your stresses and help you get the sleep you need to recharge. The Orthocare Biorytmic features a knitted fabric cover made of energy-boosting minerals and an Orthofirm foam for back support.
Sharing the same bed with someone suffering from back pain can be problematic. The disruptive tossing and turning can result to sleepless nights, and eventually relationship issues with your partner. A study shows that poor quality of sleep can put a toll on marital relations. “After a bad night of sleep, women may be more likely to express irritability or frustration, whereas men might be more likely to withhold that,” according to Dr. Wendy Troxel, an assistant professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Pittsburgh.
Get Orthocare Harmony, a quality mattress for back pain. This mattress innovation features natural latex and a highly elastic foam that allows optimal body support. You and your partner can sleep comfortably because Orthocare Harmony supports your body alignment in all sleeping positions. This is arguably one of the best mattresses for side sleepers. Moreover, its Tencel knitted fabric leaves your skin cool throughout the night.
When looking for the best mattress for back pain, you should also consider other features that can impact the quality of your sleep. Does it support your body in any sleeping position? Is it also a good mattress for neck pain? Does it have a ventilation system that disperses heat? According to sleep specialists, the optimal temperature to attain quality zzz’s is between 15 to 19 Celsius (60 to 67 Fahrenheit). This is why it’s hard to doze off in the middle of a sweltering summer night.
The Orthocare Symmetry provides all these benefits and more. It’s main material, a high-resilient premium foam, distributes pressure all over the body. No need to worry about body strains and joint pains anymore. This premier mattress also allows the free circulation of air through its interconnecting foam cell structure. You are ensured of a comfortable and cool feel at bedtime. Its Tencel fabric cover has a cooling effect that facilitates quality zzz’s at night.
Do you know that blood circulation during sleep has a huge impact on sleep quality and the risk of developing serious conditions? If your brain doesn’t get enough oxygen-rich blood flow at night, you’re likely to damage your brain tissue or have a stroke. People suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, or a condition characterized by periodic pauses in breathing, have diminished oxygenated blood reaching the brain.
The good news is that the best mattress for back pain in the market can also promote blood circulation and treat obstructive sleep apnea. The Orthocare Bliss Extra Firm is made of eco-friendly latex foam that evenly distributes pressure, cushions the body’s movement and helps correct sleeping position. It ensures healthy blood flow to the brain and other parts of the body. The Orthocare Bliss is also extra durable, saving you the expense of regularly replacing your mattress.
When choosing your mattress, you only deserve the best. Remember that sleep, together with nutrition and exercise, is a pillar of your health. Doctors recommend that adults aged 18 to 64 snooze for seven to nine hours at night. There are many ways of achieving this such as creating a conducive sleeping environment, making changes in your lifestyle habits and getting a quality mattress that eliminates back pain, cools the body and promotes blood flow. Some experts suggest that the best mattress for pain is the medium-firm type. Others recommend a firm mattress. Know which is best for you. Visit a Uratex Philippines store today!
