How Special Mattresses Can Help Relieve Back Pain
If you wake up most mornings with a back ache or muscular pain, chances are it is either because your mattress is worn out or because you are using the wrong type of mattress. Most conventional, non-orthopedic mattresses result in discomfort and disrupted sleep, which prevents the muscles and the skeletal structure from getting the rest and recovery that, happens when we are sleep. To get that much needed restful sleep at night, orthopedic mattresses are a much better option. These mattresses are specially designed to support your body weight evenly thus helping prevent localized pressure points that are the main cause of backaches and pressure sores.

There are several types of orthopedic mattresses and all of these promote restful sleep and offer tremendous health benefits to the whole body.
Memory Foam Mattress Provide Optimum Lumbar Support
Memory foam mattresses are designed to provide optimum lumbar support by contouring to your body shape when you rest on it. They help maintain the double-S shape of the spine and prevent localized pressure points. A foam mattress provides superior comfort and support and helps enhance the quality and restfulness of your sleep. In addition to the orthopedic benefits, memory mattresses are also anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic and resistant to moisture build up, mold and dust.
Gel Mattresses Offer Cool & Refreshing Sleep
The gel in gel mattresses is a molded material that is very flexible and manufactured in a box like construction, with layers placed one on top of the other horizontally. This honeycomb like construction provides a soft molding layer that contours around the shape of your body. In addition, because the gel is placed in the top side of the mattress, the inherent cool properties of gel keep your body cool while you sleep. With the perfect combination of body contouring and cool sleep, gel mattresses will leave you feeling refreshed and reenergized with you wake up in the morning.
Low Air Mattresses Help Redistribute Body Weight
Low air mattresses are usually used to help prevent or treat pressure ulcers. These mattresses are constructed with multiple pockets and are divided into sections that can be inflated independently. This allows you to make precise adjustments to the separate zones of the mattress for maximum comfort. Regularly repositioning the body in such a way that the body weight is redistributed helps prevent pressure sores in people who are immobilized or have limited movement. Pressure sores are basically caused by unrelieved pressure when a person remains in the same position for extended periods of time.
