Solving back pain in bed?

Golf is a sport that requires an explosive movement from the back and shoulders from one side to the other. This means that a golfer’s back is stretched out and up one moment, then crunched together the next. Almost every professional golfer struggles with lower back pain, sometimes halting their career to recover before they can continue. There is one story of a golfer who simply changed her sleeping posture and suddenly recovered, showing the importance of a bed that supports your back and allows you to feel comfortable lying in a healthy sleeping posture.

If you tend to lie on your side in a foetal position, or on your stomach with your head turned sideways on your pillow, it is most probably because your bed doesn’t support your back and your body is trying to compensate for this and take the strain off your lower back. When we sleep we need a bed that will give our bodies rest and healing. If you wake up while on holiday feeling that you had a great night’s rest, it might simply be due to the hotel or lodge having bought good quality beds. If you struggle with lower back pain and stiff shoulders, it might just be that a new bed is the solution you need, and at The Mattress Warehouse we want to help you get it.

If you’re the type of person who just wants to walk in and buy a bed that works for you, someone who doesn’t want to worry about how different foams or springs are made, you’re not alone. Most of us just want something that works, not that we have to worry down to every detail about how it’s going to work. However, a bed and a mattress is an investment that will improve your life for a decade. Some care and thought should definitely go into your choice then, and we at The Mattress Warehouse want to make that choice as simple as possible, while fitting neatly into your budget.

The most important thing a bed can do is support your back. It does this by making sure the surface of the bed isn’t too hard, allowing the heavier areas of a human body, like the hips and shoulders, to sink in slightly. The means that those areas that curve up, like the lower back, are supported by the surface of the bed. A bed also needs to be soft enough that you are comfortable enough to stretch out on it, rather than curling your body up. Curling your spine takes pressure off the lower back, but it strains the back rather than resting it. Similarly, if the bed is too soft, or sags, you might be resorting to lying on your stomach to counter the downward sag of the back. That just creates worse pain in the lower back as it is placed under stain to hold the weight hanging down from it. The solution? A bed that isn’t too hard or soft, keeping your back and spine in a straight line and giving you the rest you need.
