Sleep Over Your Mattress.
ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 20, 2004 Still waking up in 2004 with an aching back and not quite feeling like yourself? A new study published in the British medical journal, The Lancet suggests your mattress may be the cause.
A Spanish study of more than 300 individuals with chronic lower-back pain tested if mattress firmness improved or exacerbated participants symptoms. Participants that previously slept on both very-firm and medium-firm mattresses, were asked to sleep on new, very-firm and medium-firm mattresses for 90 days. Both test groups confirmed they experienced an improvement in their level of pain. Partners of those experiencing back pain also experienced improvement as well.
This study demonstrates that replacing your mattress may help alleviate lower back pain and thereby improve your quality of life, said Nancy Shark, executive director of The Better Sleep Council. It is important consumers recognize that they have the ability to start each day with a good nights sleep by finding out what mattress is right for them
