The back is among the most sensitive parts of our bodies and must be treated as such. Any wrong move will lead you to a lifetime of pain and regret. We can start off with the basics such as the posture we assume when we sit, stand and even walk. The more we get used to these somewhat unruly postures is the more our spines begin to get used to them, Then there will come the point where we will have absolutely no control over how we sit, stand and even walk. This is where it becomes clear to see that the damage has been done and in most cases, it is beyond repair. If there is something we can do, it will be a painfully slow journey to recovery. This is why we need to take great care of our valuable and precious backs.
Our sleeping positions also matter
We have only looked at the sitting, standing and even walking postures but we haven’t looked at the sleeping postures because this one takes a much bigger segment. When we lie on our beds, subconscious for the next 8 or so hours, our backs and spines are subjected to a kind of posture that it has to yield to. It gets even worse when we assume the wrong position and are completely unaware.
Our mattresses have a major role to play
Not too many of us have the knowledge of the power that our mattresses have, over our backs. The sooner we familiarize ourselves with the everything to do with our nightly companions, the better it will be for us to make changes if we fall on the wrong side of it all. After a long hard day, we want nothing else more than just to loosen up and throw ourselves at the mercy of our beds, whether in perfect or pathetic condition.
Luckily for us, we are going to learn just what it is that our mattresses have on our backs that we sometimes wake up feeling like we are having cramps of some sort on our backs.
Features of the best mattress for our backs
The next time you go shopping for a mattress, do it with all the confidence knowing all the comfort and pleasurable delights that are in it for you. To get that sleep that has been so elusive these past few weeks, look for a mattress with the following features;
- A high count of coils will guarantee you the durability and toughness that your back needs. Most chiropractors advice that the coil count should be the very first thing to look for when shopping for a mattress as it is the first and final determining factor.
- Look out for a very firm mattress. A mattress that is not firm will only cause you a nightly pain and discomfort when you should be enjoying your sleep uninterrupted.
- A good mattress should be capable of regulating the temperatures of your body as you sleep.
- Its durability status should read somewhere between six to eight years. It can be so annoying and irritating at the same time when one week your mattress is nice and new while the next, the springs are already sticking out.
