Arguably the most essential piece in a bedroom furniture set is a bed. Unfortunately, an estimated 40 million Americans struggle with chronic sleep disorders — and this could be due to the beds and mattresses we use. It is recommended that a new mattress be purchased every ten years in order to ensure a good night’s sleep.
With 30% of American adults suffering from insomnia, the National Sleep Foundation recommends a memory foam mattress. Memory foam mattresses are some of the best mattresses for back pain because they mold to the body in response to heat and pressure.
Tempurpedic mattresses support one’s pressure points (knees, ankles, hips, shoulders) during sleep and function as a cocoon-like structure by molding itself around those points. Molding to the body ensures that the body itself isn’t warped into an unnatural sleeping position. While sleeping on one’s side, the spine should be as straight and aligned as possible; the shoulders and hips should be especially lower in the mattress foam.
Most comfortable mattresses contain some sort of foam padding or pillow top cover. Depending on the mattress company and how soft you want your mattress to be, there are specific foam layers that create the desired comfort level. As a standard, most beds and mattresses will have a foundation layer of foam (often times individual spring form coils will be housed here), then a support layer of foam (usually more dense) is placed on top. Next, a memory foam or comfort layer is placed on the support layer. This is the mattress layer that most people will feel when testing beds at a tempurpedic mattress store. Finally, a cooling/ventilating and/or waterproof layer is placed on top, followed by the quilted cover (the part of the mattress visible to the buyer).
If a foam mattress is not improving your sleep, it may be best to look into adjustable beds. Adjustable beds aid in relieving pressure from the lower back by moving the bed into different raised or lowered positions. For those that retain water in their legs, adjustable mattresses allow them to elevate their legs while sleeping in order to avoid too much water retention. The beds can also be adjusted to lift the upper body in order to prevent neck pain when reading or watching TV.
If you and your family suffer from joint pains and aches, consider that your beds and mattresses are to blame and make a trip to a home furniture store. Having a good night’s sleep has so many physical and mental benefits that shouldn’t be looked over.
