Back Pain – The Stats:
Statistics show that back pain affects almost 80% of Australian people at some point in their lives. One of the major causes is sleeping on the wrong bed. That is a bed that fails to give correct chiropractic and orthopaedic back support.
Back Pain – The Facts:
Your back supports a complex system of vertebrae, discs, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves ~ and our spine is naturally designed to work well in an upright position. But the moment we lie down (especially in beds that fail to provide proper back support), the spinal components are subjected to considerable stresses and tension. This lack of back support can aggravate an existing ‘bad back’ condition leading to back pain problems and costly visits to chiropractors.
This means having a quality mattress which will minimise muscular and skeletal stress ~ adjust to your individual body weight ~ contour to your body shape ~ and allow you to maintain a sleeping posture where your spine stays straight and correctly aligned.
To enjoy proper back support, you should be able to lie on the bed and feel level. At the same time however, you don't want a bed that is too hard or too soft.
Take a look at the following suggestions:
1. Selecting the right Mattress – latex bed, foam mattress or special chiropractic beds for the
best back support
