How A Foam Mattress Might Be Good For Your Back Pain

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

Do you wake up in the morning with aches and pains? You might be noticing that your bed feels less comfortable than it used to. The bed’s firmness may be the reason for your troubles. However, you don’t want a bed that’s too soft. If you feel like you’re sinking into your bed, it can be just as uncomfortable as a bed that’s too hard. For this reason, mattresses have been made of materials such as mattress foam.

Memory foam mattresses are best described as having a medium level of firmness. According to one clinical study that compared firm mattresses with medium-firm mattresses, the medium-firm mattresses reduced patients’ pain while lying in bed and while getting up from the bed. Memory foam mattresses are made from foam that is firm enough to support sleepers’ weight, but malleable enough to conform to the contours of sleepers’ bodies. This ensures that your spine is aligned better and that your body’s pressure points aren’t supporting all your weight.

Despite these advantages, like many things in life, sleeping comfort can be subjective. What is comfortable for one person might not be comfortable for another. Luckily, there are options for medium-firm foam mattresses other than memory foam. For example, The Foam Factory sells conventional foam mattresses, latex mattresses, and foam toppers in addition to memory foam mattresses. Make sure you explore all the options before deciding on which new mattress to get, but remember that in the end, the number one priority is your comfort.
