It only stands to reason that a bad mattress, or a mattress that is not suitable to the contours of your body can contribute to both sleep and health problems. Researchers tell us that one of the most common health issues related to a bad or inappropriate mattress is that of back pain. Further studies have proven that what type of mattress you sleep on can contribute greatly to your quality of sleep and your ability to function appropriately the following morning. We all know that sleep is critical to our everyday lives and that the average person spends near to a third of their lives sleeping in order to fully rest and rejuvenate both body and mind.
The Effects of Lack Of Sleep
Lack of sleep can contribute to muscle fatigue, pain and poor health. Our bodies as a whole benefit greatly from an appropriate amount of sleep and quality sleep. However, it is the spine that benefits most since it works the hardest throughout the day to provide both support and functionality to the body. When individuals do not get enough sleep or do not experience quality sleep, resulting in uncomfortable and broken sleep, then the body suffers greatly. When sleeping on a mattress that is uncomfortable and not appropriately suited to your specific body contouring and needs, then undoubtedly it is difficult to enjoy a healthy and comfortable sleep and specifically a sleep without resulting back pain. People frequently ask “can sleeping on a bad mattress cause back pain?” The answer is an emphatic yes, sleeping on a bad mattress can definitely cause back pain and neck pain as well as a variety of other body aches and pains.
Choosing The Right Mattress
In order to alleviate back pain caused when sleeping and specifically when sleeping on the wrong mattress or a bad mattress, it is important to properly research and select the appropriate mattress size and style to suite your individual sleeping needs. Disrupted uncomfortable sleep on a bad mattress can surely exacerbate already existing chronic back problems and is proven to cause the development of lower back pain as well. With these statistics in mind, it is important for people to have a practical understanding of mattresses in general and familiarize themselves with the variety of mattress styles and sizes that are available on the market today in their efforts to find the perfect mattress for their own body needs.
Most mattresses, regardless of style or size, have a life expectancy of 10 years. However, cheaper mattresses not manufactured as well have a lifespan that is considerably less than the typical 10 years. Recognizing that a good mattress will accommodate your natural spine alignment, it makes perfect sense to choose a mattress that allows your muscles to relax completely providing you with a much more refreshing and healthy sleep. In order to select the right mattress for your body, you must consider the type of mattress you need, the foundation of the mattress, the firmness it offers, the overall durability of the mattress and, of course, the comfort it provides your body and mind.
Types and Styles of Mattresses
There is a wide range of mattress styles and types available today. Our discount warehouse store offers a full lineup of mattress sizes including twin, full, queen, king, and California king as well as an extensive selection of mattress types and styles. Recognized as one of the best all round discount mattress stores in all of Orange County and Los Angeles, we not only offer the best selection of mattresses but we offer them at extremely attractive discounted prices.
Our Orange County and Los Angeles discount warehouse stores offer mattresses of every type from inner spring, memory foam and pillow top mattresses to latex, flotation and air mattresses as well. While the inner-spring mattress offers more flexibility with regard to support and firmness, it seems the ever-popular memory foam and pillow top mattresses are the mattress of choice by most consumers. Many people find that a quality memory foam or pillow top mattress offers the highest level of support and comfort to the body since both pretty much mold to the shape of your body and present with incredible support and comfort beyond words. Organic latex has proven to be a popular mattress choice as well, especially for those consumers who do not want to be exposed to the chemicals that are typically used in a memory foam mattress or do not like or appreciate inner spring mattresses.
In addition to the type of mattress it is important to research and keep in mind the firmness of a mattress. A mattress that is too firm cannot support the body with balance and tends to only offer proportioned support to the heaviest parts of the body. With this fact in place, certainly there is little truth to the common opinion that the firmer a mattress is the better it is. In contrast to this fact, a mattress that is far too soft tends to sag and, therefore, does not allow the spine to maintain its proper alignment when sleeping and does not allow for a comfortable and supportive sleep.
It is obvious that finding a mattress sale can be somewhat of a difficult task. In order to purchase the right mattress for you the best approach is simply to try each mattress out in order to determine the style, type and firmness that your body requires. When shopping in our warehouse stores, consumers can lie down on mattresses of all sizes and styles, turning over from side to side, to experience the comfort levels each mattress affords. During your “tryouts” be certain that the mattress does not sag and that it is able to support the natural position of your spine when sleeping. By trying out various mattresses before you choose the one to buy, you are ensured of finding the most comfortable and supportive mattress for your individual sleep and body needs.
One final thought to keep in mind when shopping for your perfect sleep mattress is choosing a proper foundation, or box spring. The box spring actually gives support to the mattress and contributes to the extended life of your mattress. As a rule of thumb, you want to purchase a new box spring when you purchase your new mattress to ensure that you have the foundation designed specifically for your mattress which will contribute greatly to the level of support and comfort your mattress will ultimately provide.
Most people, even back sufferers, do not find it necessary to purchase a mattress that is extremely firm. In most cases a medium firmness to a mattress is sufficient for the average person’s sleeping needs. Regardless of the size or type of mattress you are in search of, you can be sure our highly reputable Orange County and Los Angeles discount mattress stores will satisfy all your sleep mattress needs. Why not turn your “dream” of enjoying a healthy and restful sleep throughout the night with all the comfort and support your body needs into a true reality.
