What Is a Good Mattress?

Have you ever heard people say: "You have back problems? Then, sleep on the floor; it is good for your column!"? Is it true? No! New research shows that it is a great error to sleep on a firm mattress. Why? A study in Spain has demonstrated that almost 50% of people with chronic lower-back pain who used to sleep on firm mattress had improved a lot after 3 month sleeping on a new spring mattress.

What You Must Do

If you are suffering from chronic back pain, check your mattress and make sure you have a medium-firm mattress and not a firm one! A medium-firm mattress helps to balance the different forces exerted by the body. Additionally, a medium-firm mattress can properly sustain and ease the bony lumbar spine. The problem with a soft mattress is that your body is lying too limply on the bed and has little or no support on your vertebral column.

Best Position to Sleep

Try not to sleep on your stomach! This position stresses too much several disks of your spine. Sleep on your back (it helps to keep your natural alignment) or on your side!


Like anybody else, you have your own sleeping habits. But, research studies indicate that sleeping on a medium-firm mattress can certainly help you with your health. Then, why not attempt to change both your bedding and the way you sleep? Additionally, in order to cure quickly and permanently your chronic back pain, you must correct your spine alignment.
