Memory Foam: A Memory Foam Mattress Can Help Ease Back Pain

Is is time for a new mattress?  Tired of waking up with back pain?  Tired of tossing and turning to get comfortable?  Thinking about a memory foam mattress?  Many people buy a memory foam mattress to help ease their back pain and to sleep more comfortably.  Back pain – Meaning – causes – Exercises addresses the meaning, causes, and exercises for back pain, but a memory foam mattress may be able to help too.

A memory foam mattress is temperature sensitive.  It is this temperature sensitivity that makes a memory foam mattress so comfortable.  The memory foam uses your body’s temperature to mold to the contours of your body.  This reduces pressure points and the need to continually toss and turn to get comfortable.  When you do change positions the memory foam returns (hence “memory”) to its original position and then gently molds to your new position.  Although it’s not a substitute for the proper care and any needed medical attention for your back, the comfortable support can help those with back issues to sleep with less pain.

I founded Healthy Foundations after I discovered memory foam helped me after a serious back injury.  Although Healthy Foundations sells memory foam, we want you to be as informed about your mattress options as possible.  Check out our guides to air beds and natural latex mattresses too.
