“Adulting” is hard, not only because you suddenly have to take care of your bills and remember payment due dates, you also need to look after yourself. And for some, adulting is painful. As in back pains, muscle pains, and joint pains. Once people reached their 30s or 40s, their rooms may smell like menthol and their backs full of patches for pain relief.
But this is also the time when people remember to be kinder to themselves. They learn that sleep, relaxing sleep, should not be taken for granted. And that the quality of a mattress should not be compromised. For people experiencing pain all over their body, an orthopedic mattress is a gift from the gods. Why does the type of mattress matter, you ask. As you get older, you would realize that your body is screaming for special attention, and the things that you usually take for granted, such as sleep and overall health, suddenly become priorities.
What are the benefits of an orthopedic mattress? And how can it potentially change your life?
This is perhaps the most obvious benefit of an orthopedic mattress. Sleeping on old and wrong mattresses can aggravate the pain especially on the lower back, and orthopedic mattresses are specifically designed to make those pains go away.
The high-density foam that gives a firm feel makes this possible. This means it doesn’t bend, as opposed to regular mattresses that may cause your spine to curve. The Orthocare Symmetry, a premium mattress of Uratex Philippines, uses a high-resilient Therapoint foam that distributes weight evenly, which is great for relief from neck, back, and joint pain. It also has an interconnecting foam cell structure that allows air to flow freely. This bonus cooling effect helps achieve the ideal sleep temperature for a more comfortable sleep.
One of the benefits of an orthopedic bed is that they are specially designed to keep the spine absolutely straight. Not only does this help alleviate back pains, they also help improve posture. The firmness of an orthopedic mattress help ensure proper spine alignment, eliminating that sinking feeling while you sleep. The Orthocare Balance mattress, recommended by the Philippine Orthopaedic Association, combines high-density foam with that of a multi-zone topper made of Orthofirm foam for premium spine support. It is also great for pressure relief.
Orthopedic mattresses do not yield to your weight and you don’t sink while you sleep, giving you a more satisfying sleep. They are more capable to support natural body shape and contours, unlike regular beds that tend to create resistance. Because of this, you feel no discomfort while you sleep and waking up several times in the middle of the night would be a rare occurrence. For example, the Orthocare Bliss Medium Firm, an orthopedic mattress made of natural latex foam has elastic properties that gently respond to your body’s movements and helps achieve positional comfort that can lead to a more satisfying night’s sleep. Apart from relieving pressure points, it also ensures good blood circulation throughout the night.
Apart from the relief provided by an orthopedic mattress for back pain, it is also excellent for couples. If you and your partner always debate on who tosses and turns more frequently or who ends up occupying three-fourths of the bed, an orthopedic mattress can be your silent mediator. Due to the firmness of an orthopedic bed, your partner can be prevented from unconsciously rolling over to your side of the bed or the anti-rolling effect.
Orthocare Bliss Extra Firm responds to the movements of the body. And since it provides support around the body of an individual, a partner that constantly moves in his or her side of the bed shouldn’t create a disruption. When there is no pain in the muscles and joints, and pain points are distributed evenly, rolling over would also be minimized because discomfort is naturally reduced.
Orthopedic mattresses are more economical. It could save you money that would otherwise go to medication for muscle or joint pains. Orthocare Harmony, for example, is a mattress that truly understands your orthopedic needs. Its comfort layers combine natural latex and high-resilient foam that has flexible properties for balanced pressure distribution, body support, and natural body alignment. It is also engineered with open-cell structure to promote air circulation for a truly restorative sleep.
Orthopedic mattresses are carefully and specially engineered to serve very specific medical needs. They are made from high-quality foams and materials so that after years of usage, it would still be in tip-top condition. In the end, it is economical because you won’t be needing to replace your mattress very often.
An orthopedic mattress is a revolutionary mattress that you didn’t know you need in your life. It is one of those things that once you’ve tried, you’ll never look back. Orthopedic beds combine comfort and support in a way no regular foam or mattress can deliver. Never compromise sleep. Get yours now.
