Getting a good night’s rest is important for physical and mental health. Sleep heals and repairs the body and reduces the effects of stress. However, it’s tough to sleep through the night when you have aches and pains and wake up feeling tired. In fact, one of the key culprits of body ache is a bad mattress. You may not realize it, but if you’ve been waking up with pain that you know isn’t caused by an injury or a medical condition, it’s very likely because of your mattress.
How exactly does a bad mattress cause pain? Let’s consider the fact that we spend about a third (hopefully!!) of our lives sleeping. During this time, our bodies are supported by a mattress that provides a surface to sleep on. Ideally, it should be a supportive yet comfortable surface that helps your muscles relax and recover, no pressure points, and properly designed to keep your spine naturally aligned. This way, each part of our bodies is properly supported. Most importantly, our spines are kept aligned with its natural curvature. A bad mattress does the opposite of all this. The longer you use it, the likelier you are to develop pain, especially in your back, neck, and hips.
It’s important to keep in mind that a bad mattress can also cause allergies. It acts as a hotbed for dust mites and other allergens that can trigger attacks. Allergy symptoms can be mild such as a headache and sneezing or may be more severe like joint, back, and neck pain. If you have asthma, it can exacerbate symptoms. Your chest may feel tight, and you may have difficulty breathing and trouble sleeping.
One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Not only comfortable but some of the best sleep EVER!!!!. We’ve had our Cali King for almost a year with zero regrets. Every mattress purchase from here on out with be Nuvanna no second guessing, no doubts. Keep up the great product.
A good mattress is both comfortable and supportive. It has just the right amount of ‘give’ so that pressure points are properly cushioned. At the same time, it supports individual parts of your body and prevents you from sinking into it – which can throw your spine out of alignment and lead to body ache.
Nuvanna is an innovative mattress that’s designed by an industry expert with over 20 years’ experience. It features a multi-layered construction with three layers that combine to align the spine and support various parts of your body. The topmost layer utilizes phase-changing gel particles that work to disperse body heat and keep you cool. This is important as a lower body temperature induces sleep. The middle layer isolates motion so that you and your partner aren’t disturbed by each other’s movements. The last layer uses a Progressive Support System to prevent the sinking sensation that’s common in many foam mattresses. To top it all off, the mattress uses a TENCEL cover that’s breathable, hypoallergenic, and wicks away moisture.
Good sleep can depend on a number of factors including what you eat before bed and how stressed you are. Body ache, however, is usually the result of using a bad mattress (unless your pain is related to injury or illness). Give yourself the gift of pain-free sleep by investing in a mattress that knows what your body needs. You’ll sleep better and will awake feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
