When it comes to finding the right mattress, you should weigh
up the two main components of their design: the support system, and
the sleep system, according to industry expert Ray Gingrich in
Midland Daily News.


The support system, which can be springs, foam or latex, is the
element of the bed that is the most
supportive. Choosing the right support system for you will help
alleviate back pains or any kind of body-stiffness you may feel
after a night's sleep. Back pain is one of the most common
complaints reported to British GPs, and it is estimated that up to
40 per cent of adults are affected by pains in the back at some
point. The cost to the economy has been estimated to be in the
billions, with 11 million sick days been accounted to back
troubles.


There are several support systems which can support the back. A
recent Spanish study found that out of the 300 patients to test
beds, those who used softer mattresses reported less back pain
in the morning.  The research was conducted by doctors in
Madrid, Majorca and Barcelona, and focussed on back pain that is
likely to result from poor sleeping postures and daily strains,
rather than degenerative diseases such as arthritis, fractures or
injury to the spine.

Memory foam mattresses are a
particularly attractive option for those that suffer from back
pains, and stand out as the epitome of recent support systems. The
material moulds to the body, which provides ample support for the
sleeper in the places they need it the most.


Mattress sleep is about the "density of the padding or foam that
keeps you comfortable", according to Gingrich. The sleep element is
a crucial enabler of a proper rest, which repairs both the body and
the mind. Deep sleep helps body tissues to regenerate, and is a
significant factor for how well you handle the day. 


When it comes to the mattress, the choice is very personal, as we
all sleep in different ways. There are a large variety of
mattresses available that are tailor made to suit the individual
sleeper.
