    Do you find that you often toss and turn at night trying to get comfortable? Did you know your mattress could be to blame? A traditional mattress can often aggravate a bad back or make existing problems worse. But fear not though. A better nights sleep could be achieved with the simple use of an Orthopaedic Mattress. Here’s how:

    Benefits of an Orthopaedic Mattress

    Having the correct support for your spine is imperative for deep and comfortable sleep. The mattress quality is vital for the immediate and long term condition of your spine. An orthopaedic mattress is specifically designed to support your spine whilst you sleep, no matter your sleeping position.

    Increased Support

    Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to mould around the contours of your body, shaping around the key areas that need support including your neck, back and hips. Most orthopaedic mattresses offer the maximum support possible, meaning you get push back for the best sleeping position free of aches and pains.

    When laying on an orthopaedic mattress, your body weight is evenly distributed. This means that any pressure points around your neck, back and hips are relieved of any additional weight added to them whilst sleeping.

    An orthopaedic mattress ensures you have the correct spinal alignment so your posture is healthy as you sleep.

    Reduced aches and pains

    By providing you with the correct support an Orthopaedic Mattress distributes your body weight evenly. This reduces pressure points offering temporary positional relief from your aches and pains. Combined with an adjustable bed, this reduces any pressure from building on any specific areas of pain.

    The Many Benefits of an Orthopaedic Mattress

    Better Sleep

    An Orthopaedic Mattress can offer those who suffer from backache, aching joints and arthritic pain a better nights sleep. Improving positional comfort can lead to a more satisfying night’s sleep as you are not woken in the night with discomforts.

    Orthopaedic mattresses are firmer than normal mattresses. A firm mattress is essential to support your spine. If your mattress is not firm enough the middle part of your body will sink into your mattress, meaning your spine is in an incorrect position, often leading to back pain.
