Importance of Spinal Alignment for a Good Night's Sleep

1st April 2022 • 2 min read

Poor posture can be a problem at night, too. Find out how spinal alignment can help you sleep better.

Prepared in partnership with Sealy Posturepedic.

Your spine has a say when it comes to the quality of your mattress. Many people put up with having an uncomfortable bed that doesn’t provide the right support, but may be unaware that it can actually be detrimental to the quality of our sleep. So how can you keep yourself from slouching while you lie in bed?  

What is spinal alignment and how does it affect sleep?

During the day, you are probably able to tell when you are sitting or standing with poor posture. Your spine has a neutral resting position that allows surrounding muscles to relax. This is no different when you are lying down in bed. Without the right support, your mattress is likely to dip in at the shoulders and hips (where your body is naturally heaviest). This has the same effect as if you were sitting or standing for hours in an awkward position. Your muscles strain while you sleep, trying to align your spine. When you wake up, you are far more likely to experience back pain and muscular aches. Discomfort at night can interrupt deep sleep, too. Missing out on much-needed rest can impact your overall health and quality of life.

Support and comfort for your whole body

You need proper support that moves with you while you sleep, allowing your body to rest and relax. Sealy solve this problem with springs that are specially designed to maintain neutral alignment of your spine. They sense your weight and provide more support where it’s needed.

This technology is the core of every Sealy Posturepedic mattress, along with high quality foams for comfort. In fact, Sealy knows that in addition to spinal alignment, it is important to cushion your pressure points and prevent tossing and turning at night.
