According to medical research, over half of UK adults suffer from persistent neck and back pain. That’s a lot of people! If you often wake up feeling achy and sore, don’t worry – there are ways to ease the pain.
How a memory foam mattress can ease back pain
Traditionally, firm mattresses are deemed the best solution for back pain sufferers. However a mattress which is too firm could actually do more damage than good, pushing against your spine and inflaming the problem. What you really need is a supportive mattress, but many of us find it difficult to differentiate between what is firm and what is supportive.
Memory foam has the unique ability to conform to your natural curves when you lie down. Instead of pushing against your body like a traditional mattress, a memory foam mattress warms and softens around you. The health benefits of this for back pain sufferers include:
- Full body support
- Pressure point relief
- Proper spinal alignment
- Healthy blood circulation
We design and produce a range of orthopedic memory foam mattresses at our British HQ. These designs are inspired by medical research, and are specially geared towards lower back pain relief. So if you’re suffering from chronic back pain, an orthopedic memory foam mattress could be just what you need.
There are 2 main types of orthopedic memory foam mattresses in our range. It just depends which feel of mattress you prefer:
1. Orthopedic memory foam mattress
Our orthopedic memory foam mattresses have a special design feature which makes them great for lower back pain sufferers. The base foam layer has strategically placed ‘grooves’ or ‘castellations’ in it. These grooves help to relieve pressure and provide optimal support around common achy areas, particularly your lower back.
2. Orthopedic pocket sprung memory foam mattress
If you prefer the traditional feel and support of pocket springs, check out our hybrid memory foam and pocket spring design: Outlast Classicpedic Pocket Mattress. This orthopedic mattress houses 1500 individually cased pocket springs which work independently to provide tailored support for your body. The pocket springs react to pressure, so every inch of you gets just the right amount of support: from your shoulders to your lower back, and right down to your ankles. Add memory foam into the mix with its soothing, pressure-reliving qualities and you’ve got a winning combination for lower back pain sufferers.
