Most of us remember jumping out of bed as a kid. No neck pain. No back pain. Unfortunately, as we get older, many start waking up from their mattress with back pain or neck stiffness. Sleep is a vital part of our lives. It is estimated we spend 1/3 of our life sleeping. Our bodies heal, fight infections, reduce inflammation, and recover at night. Needless to say, the mattress you sleep on is of utmost importance.
In general, it is recommended to sleep on a mattress that supports the curves of your spine. Sleeping on your back puts the least amount of pressure through your spinal discs. Many people prefer a firm mattress, while others prefer a plush mattress. Some prefer a mattress without memory foam while others prefer a hybrid mattress. Some have the notion that memory foam mattresses are plush, but this in fact is not true.
Let’s review the various materials of mattresses available:
Memory Foam is designed to support, contour, and cradle the natural curves of the body while properly aligning the spine for purely restful sleep sans the tossing, turning, and aching. Side, back, and stomach sleepers benefit from memory foam mattresses.
Latex Memory Foam: Naturally springy and responsive, latex offers firm support that keeps your body floating on the top of your bed, instead of sinking into it. Mattress reviews show mattresses made with latex tend to be firmer in feel.
Gel Memory Foam: Designed to support, contour, and cradle the natural curves of the body while properly aligning the spine. The gel memory foam mattresses tend to be softer than the latex mattresses.
Omniphase Material: Rated at 20-times the cooling capability of gel memory foam, this phase change material actively pulls heat away from the body, so you can rest within the optimal body temperature range of 87 to 91 degrees. (Available in mattresses and pillows).
Hybrid Mattresses are a combination of the traditional spring mattresses with a memory foam material. Common hybrid mattresses include latex hybrid and gel hybrid mattresses.
Consider the mattress type you sleep on currently. Remember that a new mattress will feel different initially and take time adjusting to. If you sleep hot, consider a mattress with cooling technology as many memory foam mattresses sleep warmer. Cooling mattresses can be made warmer with warmer bed sheets. If you are on the fence between a firmer and softer mattress, remember a mattress will only get softer with use. Therefore, it’s better to purchase a slightly firmer mattress. Temporarily, a mattress gel topper can be used to make a mattress softer if a mattress feels too firm. Make no mistake that an extra firm mattress can often cause aches and pain if the mattress is too stiff. Many side sleepers may even complain of waking up with numbness or tingling.
