Health: Back Pain in the Morning? Forget the Doctor, Get a New Mattress

If you wake up with back pain it's probably your mattress! Tell me if this does not sound familiar?  You wake up and feel stiff and sore, but as you move around during the morning you start to feel better and by the end of the day no issues at all. Then you go back to bed and it starts all over again the next day.

That's your mattresses way of telling you it's not supporting your back properly and proper support is very important for your spine.   If you are having pain on your sides only when you sleep this is a clear indication that your mattress is not supporting your spine correctly or that the mattress is causing painful pressure points.

You should have support from the mattress so that your spine is kept in alignment, and at the same time, you should have enough softness to relieve pressure.  There are so many factors that go into selecting a correct mattress with correct support as well as comfort.


Here are some general tips to help you make the proper selection.  

First understand that no mattress will solve your back problem unless it is a short-term strain or muscle spasm situation. The major advantage a new mattress offers you is a much more comfortable, “pothole” free surface that will support you in a straight line while you are sleeping on your side or back. Generally speaking firmer mattresses do a better job of keeping you level. Support and comfort are not the same thing. Make sure you get a mattress with good support and then select the comfort level you like the most.

Comfort is a personal choice; support is either based on the coil system or base foam if you select a memory foam or latex mattress. Comfort is extremely important and in the selection process you will determine just what feels best for you.  

When you find the best and most comfortable level of comfort then you have to find the mattress that will continue to offer you the same support for years to come.   The new memory foam mattresses, available from the major brand names, as well as latest individually pocketed or wrapped coil innerspring models do an excellent job of offering you great support.

Take the comfort test, lie down, try the bed on your side and back several times before you determine which feels best to you. and just let your body will tell you what feels best.  Once you have selected the proper mattress you should wake up feeling refreshed and ready for your day.   

Without the right amount of sleep each night you start to get rundown and energy levels drop which causes you to be less active and mobile.   So, why not say goodbye to morning back pain and go out shopping for a new mattress?

There are so many excellent choices available, do your homework and find a new mattress today!
