If you suffer from an aching back, then your mattress may have a lot to do with it. Either the type of mattress you are sleeping on is flat out causing the problem or isn't doing you any favours. The mattress experts and latex mattress manufacturers at Nature's Embrace in Delta, British Columbia know a thing or two about how mattresses can affect your back.
The most common mattress you'll find in just about any home is an innerspring mattress. An innerspring mattress basically consists of a frame filled with steel coils, topped by a layer of fibres or foam in order to provide some padding.
Innerspring mattresses are notoriously bad for backs. They can make numerous back conditions worse, and they can even cause back problems after some spots of the mattress become more worn and saggy then others. Even a new innerspring mattress with no wear and tear can poke uncomfortably into sensitive back areas.
As an alternative to innerspring mattresses, many people opt to purchase a memory foam mattress. While memory foam can provide some relief for an aching back, it doesn't quite hold up when compared to the benefits provided by latex mattresses in Canada.
For one thing, memory foam takes a while to warm up and soften after you lay down. Once it does begin to contour to the shape of your body, memory foam can sometimes uncomfortably box you in and make it difficult to shift during sleep, potentially aggravating back pain.
Latex, on the other hand, in a responsive surface the cradles that effortlessly reacts to your body through the night. While it does provide you with that much-needed give, it also doesn't mould around your body to the extent that it resists your movements during sleep. Furthermore, latex is fantastic at inhibiting motion transfer, allowing you to easily sleep through any of your bed partner's tossing and turning.
Another reason why you'd want to choose a latex mattress is that it breathes much better than memory foam. Memory foam mattresses can get very hot overnight as they soak in your body heat. Latex, as it is pierced with pinholes, allows the heat to disperse.
On top of being incredibly comfortable to sleep on, latex mattresses have the added benefit of being hypoallergenic. Resistant to mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi, and dust mites, latex is the perfect choice for allergy sufferers. Best of all, a latex mattress can last up to 30 years before needing to be replaced.
