The Benefits of an Orthopaedic Mattress
With us humans spending around a third of our time asleep, it's absolutely crucial that our beds are as comfortable and supportive as they can possibly be. An inferior mattress can cause serious damage to the body's bones and muscles which at best cause pain and at worst can even result in serious, long-lasting deformities and medical problems.
An orthopaedic mattress can help, providing a long-term solution to such issues. Orthopaedic mattress technology and design is the result of medical research and offers many health benefits, including:
Whichever position you sleep in, the muscles of your body experience pressure; this can result in aches and pains that can last through the night and continue the following day. Orthopaedic mattresses are specially designed to help prevent these problems by offering your body extra support where you need it most and preventing excess pressure being placed on the muscles.
Pain in the bones and muscles is one of the leading causes of sleep deprivation, which in turn can lead to many other problems such as depression, fatigue, weight changes, emotional instability, reduced productivity and delayed reaction times. An orthopaedic mattress can prevent all of these problems by giving you a firm, supportive and comfortable sleeping experience.
The firmness of orthopaedic mattresses allows the body's weight to be distributed evenly right across it, preventing certain parts of the body from dipping. By supporting the angles of your body, particularly at the spine and neck, an orthopaedic mattress keeps the body in a straight position and prevents any uncomfortable contortion.
Spinal Support and Posture Alignment
The spine represents the very core of our body and as such is strongly affected by the way you sleep. Sleeping night after night on a soft, badly-designed mattress of inferior quality can result in the spine becoming damaged which in the short term can cause poor posture and in the long term can cause serious back problems in later life. Supportive and balancing, an orthopaedic mattress can prevent these problems from ever occurring.
