Back pain is basically of two types, acute pain which lasts for a short period and second one is chronic which last for a long time. Lumbar pain or lower back pain is usually caused due to sudden movement or lifting heavy weight for which you need to consult an orthopaedic doctor.
Back pain can be reduced by proper selection of mattress for sleeping. As body and gravitational force acts downward this is balanced or counter acted by the force exerted by the mattress. The material used in the mattress decided this force and which helps in supporting and aligning the spine in right position.
Firmness and support are two different characteristics which are normally misunderstood. Mattress with higher firmness is not necessary will give you proper support even soft mattress can give you proper support. A good mattress has both comfortable and supportive functionality.
Firmness is subjective sensation that we get when we sleep on the mattress. It’s a myth that firm mattress are the best for people suffering from lower back pain or body pain. Medium firm is the ideal firmness required for proper support system of the Spine which helps in reducing lifestyle back pain. The firmness required various upon your sleeping style.
