Choose the right mattress, avoid back problems
Low back pain is the most common complaint when the wrong mattress is chosen. It is therefore important that you receive proper guidance in your search for the perfect mattress. This way you will avoid back problems and enjoy the best night's sleep, every night again.
What exactly is a good mattress?
A good mattress must provide the right support .
There are mattresses with specific hip and shoulder zones. And it is in these areas that we are sensitive to pressure points.
By adding softer zones, your hips and shoulders are relieved and your sleeping posture improves . And that in turn ensures that back problems are avoided.
Of course, not only the pressure points are important, the material from which the mattress is made is also essential.
Should I choose a hard mattress if I have back problems?
No, that is a misconception we often hear in our shop.
The ideal firmness of a mattress is determined by the weight of the person, but also by personal preference.
The ideal mattress is neither too hard nor too soft. This depends on the material used.
If you choose a mattress that is too hard, your body will not be sufficiently supported and your posture will be distorted. As a result, the muscles in your back cannot relax and you will suffer from back problems.
If you choose a mattress that is too soft, your body will sag and not be supported .
When is a firm mattress the right choice?
Are you a stomach sleeper? Then you should definitely not use a mattress that is too soft. A harder mattress will provide the best support in this case.
Please note that sleeping on your stomach is bad for your back. It is best to learn to adopt a different sleeping position.
When is a soft mattress the right choice?
For people who are sensitive to their muscles , a softer mattress is recommended. However, make sure that your soft mattress still provides the necessary support .
Replacing your mattress after 10 years avoids back problems
After about 10 to 12 years , your mattress will start to lose its function: the support will become less. Obviously, this is not good for your back and you will suffer more from back problems. However, there are materials that can extend the life of a mattress to 15 years.
