The orthopaedic mattress is a very popular choice for those who are tired of waking up with achy limbs and sleepy eyes. So, if you have a bad back or joint pain, listen up- this supportive sleeping buddy could be the answer to your prayers.
But what exactly is an orthopaedic mattress and why are they so great?
An orthopaedic mattress is an umbrella term to describe firm sleeping surfaces and we're talking firm! Specifically designed to provide the best targeted support to backs, joints, muscles and bones.
Whilst originally developed in the 1950s for those with bad backs in mind, technological advancements have meant they now cater to a much wider audience of sleepers who suffer from complaints other than just a sore back. So, if you struggle with back pain, sore hips or an achy case of stiffness, an orthopaedic mattress might be just what the doctor ordered.
How does an orthopaedic mattress improve sleep?
Specifically designed to offer the utmost in both comfort and support, there's a reason why orthopaedic mattresses are so often recommended. Main benefits:
The firmness of an orthopaedic mattress means your body will always get the maximum amount of push-back to ensure your joints are fully supported. As a result, your body will be able to find its natural sleeping position more easily and you’ll wake up feeling like a refreshed person.
Also, if you're not sleeping alone, the heightened firmness reduces the risk of your bedfellow’s movements waking you up. If your partner is a restless sleeper, then having an orthopaedic mattress is by far the best solution.
Correct spinal alignment
The dream solution for anyone who suffers with back pain, a firmer surface means your spine will stay in perfect alignment all night long, alleviating any stress and pressure points as you sleep.
Even weight distribution
An orthopaedic mattress helps to distribute your body's weight and take the pressure off certain joints, muscles and bones which can cause discomfort, tossing and turning in the night.
Strong sleeping posture
The increased support on offer helps you to maintain a heathy sleeping posture, meaning that your blood circulation is also kept in check as you sleep.
