Back pain is a debilitating and uncomfortable condition that impacts the day-to-day life of many people in and beyond Singapore. We all hope that some quality rest at the end of a tiring night will allow us to wake up refreshed and ready to start the day. Unfortunately, a section of Singapore’s population wakes up daily with chronic or acute backaches and pains. While various factors can contribute towards painful back conditions, the type and quality of the mattress you choose to sleep on can either help manage and alleviate back pain or exacerbate and potentially worsen it.
Factors to Consider before Purchasing Your Mattress
Investing in a new mattress might be the way to go if you find yourself persistently suffering from unexplainable back aches and pains. Whether you want to opt for a single, super single, queen or king sized mattress, you should prioritise a mattress that supports the natural curve of your spine when lying down. Factors such as the materials the mattress is made from, your preferred sleeping position and the firmness of the mattress should also be considered when choosing a mattress for back pain.
Buy Memory Foam and Latex Mattresses Online
Memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses are generally considered the top choice for back pain sufferers. The conforming nature of these mattresses encourages reduced movement and helps keep your spine aligned while you sleep. Your body’s natural curves and contours, as well as common pressure points like shoulders and hips will be supported, reducing overall stress on the back. Nonetheless, there are a variety of other innerspring or hybrid mattresses that offer optimal support. Side sleepers should opt for a medium to medium-firm mattress, while back and stomach sleepers might find a medium-firm to firm mattress more comfortable.
We’ve put together a list of 5 mattresses we hope will benefit those suffering from painful back conditions. These mattresses all come in single, super single, queen and king size, and are available for purchase online at The Mattress Boutique in Singapore.
