How You Can Manage Back Pain and Improve Your Health


Relieve Back Pain with a Memory Foam Mattress

A Memory Foam Mattress could be a very good move in helping relieve back pain. But what are the causes of this medical condition and what else can you do to combat it? Research has shown that 4 out of 5 people will experience back pain at some stage in their lives. In the majority of cases back pain may not be caused by any serious or specific problem, but can be aggravated by putting strain on your back.

You can experience non specific back pain through being stressed, overweight, having poor posture, an uncomfortable or old mattress, and lifting and carrying heavy items incorrectly.

Helpful Advice for Easing Back Pain

Well our first piece of simple advice would be to get a Memory Foam Mattress for a supportive and comfortable night’s sleep! The advice from health professionals is that if you suffer with back pain you should ensure you keep active; lying down to rest your back will not result in improvements. But when you do go to bed, it will be important that you have the right mattress to offer the best possible support, not just for your back but for your whole body.

A Memory Foam Mattress will offer your lower and upper back support, as well as support your full neck area which will help to relieve things like tension, pain and nerve pressure; this is because a memory foam mattress allows your spine to be properly aligned when you sleep.

Did you know the NHS spends more than £1 Billion per year on back pain related costs?! But in many cases back pain is not always something that we have to live with, and can be easily solvable using the correct measures.

Keeping active is one of the best ways to ease your pain. It may hurt at times, and you must be sure not to strain yourself, but light exercise such as walking, jogging, cycling (in the correct position) yoga, pilates, and continuing with your day to day activities will help you on the road to recovery, and drastically improve your overall health and well being.

Be sure to maintain the correct posture when carrying out any strenuous activities otherwise you could be at risk of causing further problems. Have a glance at 5 Easy Exercise Tips for more information and advice.

Our Quick Tips for Beating Back Pain

  • -Drink lots of water, it’s good for your health and your muscles can ache more when they get dehydrated.
  • When you wake up take time to do some stretches and allow your back to wake up too.
  • Choose the right mattress so you can start the day feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. We recommend a memory foam mattress for optimum support.
  • Keep active, try not to stay in one position too long, and remember to sit up straight.

Please remember that although in many cases back pain is non specific and can be easily self treatable, it can also be a sign of something more serious. If you suffer from chronic, persistent back pain it may be a good idea to see your doctor and rule out any serious health problems.
