What’s the best mattress for spine health?

 

1 in 3 people in the U.S. don’t get enough sleep. Not having at least seven hours of sleep a night can be detrimental to a person’s health and make it difficult for them to function during work and daily activities. A chronic lack of sleep also puts people at an elevated risk of developing serious health conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and mental health disorders. Giving the body the proper time to rest and recover is also good for spine health, but sometimes spinal pain and problems can make it harder for people to sleep through the night.

It’s so important to get a good night’s sleep and protect your spine while sleeping, which is why you need to find a supportive mattress. It’s all about finding a mattress that’s the right balance of soft yet firm. Here are two of the most common chiropractic suggestions on the best mattresses for spine health and optimal comfort. 

  • Lumbar spine support – for back pain sufferers, it’s important to have a supportive mattress that pushes against the body to allow the low back to relax. If you sleep on your back, you want to be sure you don’t sink into an overly comfy mattress, as then your muscles need to work overtime to support the low back.
  • Pressure relief – if you need a break from spinal pressure, you should have a high-quality mattress with gentle yet firm support. The hips and shoulders are two areas that need pressure relief during the night to prevent compression and stress. If you have pain in these spots or you like to sleep on your side, then a mattress that offers varying degrees of pressure for better pain relief is a good deal. Memory foam and adjustable mattresses are two great examples.
