A Guide To Lumbar Support And Your Bed Mattress

14th February , 2022

Some of us are no strangers to back issues or aches and pains. Having proper bedding or bedding accessories can help to significantly reduce the amount of pain and discomfort individual experiences. Here are some solutions that you may want to consider if you are looking to minimise your aches and pains. 

Common Causes of Back Pain

Some common causes for back pain are arthritis, osteoporosis, a ruptured disc, damage to the spine, a compression fracture, or muscle strain. Experiencing back pain can be quite sudden or it may happen that the discomfort develops over time. The good news is that most causes of back pain can be relieved by taking certain measures. One of the main ways to relieve these symptoms is by sleeping and sitting properly. This can be helped through the use of an orthopaedic mattress, orthomassage pillow or a lumbar cushion. 

Orthopaedic Mattress

Orthopaedic mattresses help with the alignment of your spine during a night’s sleep. The padding and fibres are designed to reduce the amount of strain that firmer mattresses put on the back. Mattress stores in Dubai may offer multiple types of beds that are softer but try to opt for one with a high-density foam core. This helps regulate circulation which can reduce swelling of the back muscles or spine. Top of the range orthopaedic mattresses correct the positioning of the spinal column and all limbs during sleep.

Orthomassage Pillow

The alignment of your body can be corrected from head to toe if you consider the elevation of your head. Sleeping on the right pillow can make a big difference in how your spine rests at night. Using an orthomassage pillow with small pyramid-shaped protrusions in the centre creates a revitalising action around the upper neck. This helps to create a lighter feeling for your neck as it rests and encourages microcirculation. Using an orthomassage pillow with an orthopaedic mattress can significantly reduce the amount of back pain you wake up with, in the morning. 

Lumbar Cushion 

A lumbar cushion is used to support the back and has side “wings” that are designed to relieve some of the tension in your back and help you sit properly. Whether you are sitting in bed or on a chair, a lumbar cushion can easily be moved around. These cushions can also help in preventing back issues, or prevent them from worsening because many of us do not sit with the correct posture. Having lumbar support can help keep your spine in the optimal position when sitting down. The interior of the lumbar cushion is made from Memoform. This is a material that adapts to the body’s shape, thus providing a superior and customised type of comfort.

Preventing and easing backaches and pain can be done with the proper use of orthopaedic mattresses and certain pillows and support cushions. Correcting your posture before the issues worsen, can save you a lot of hassle and discomfort in the future. Consider visiting a mattress store in Dubai to find which option or options will best help you with your health and wellness.
