How To Properly Support Your Body And Take Advantage Of Our Mattress Pain-Relieving Benefits? Léa 28 October 2023 15:43 Updated Your Silk & Snow mattress will be unique since we combine quality and sustainability! When it comes to our mattresses, for most customers, it will be a dream come true from the start. Others might find it takes a little longer, especially if your body is accustomed to a different kind of comfort and bedding. We have found that it is not unusual to need a fair bit of time to adjust to a new mattress, especially if you have been spending many years sleeping on your previous mattress. We highly recommend our S&S and Hybrid Mattress for those with pain because it provides excellent pressure point relief. We believe that sleeping on a good quality memory foam mattress like the S&S Mattress can be one of the best things you can do for your back. Memory foam helps to distribute your body weight evenly over the mattress surface due to its viscous property. Memory foam also helps align your spine while you sleep to eliminate pressure points. Our Organic Mattress has a pocket coil base with soft coils on the outer thirds and firmer coils on the middle third to give a balanced support system that supports spinal alignment, making it a great option for relieving discomfort. It has no synthetic additions or components and is constructed of natural materials. Back discomfort can be relieved by a natural latex mattress because of its exceptional capacity to conform to the size, weight, and contour of your body. Experiencing Back Pain ? If you are feeling back pain from different types of mattresses, it is possible that there are other issues outside of the mattress itself that may be exacerbating your pain. One of the common reasons for back pain is your lower back not being properly supported or aligned with the rest of your body. One of the best sleeping positions that provides better support to your back is created by slightly elevating your legs using 1 or 2 pillows. Propping up your legs will reduce strain on your lower back. If this is still not providing enough relief, you can roll up a thin towel that can be inserted under your lower back. Switching or adjusting the loft (thickness) of the pillow behind your head can also alleviate back pain as this will help align your spine. Adjusting the loft of your pillow to go along with your new mattress is important because while your pillows may have worked with your old mattress, using your old pillows can put more strain on your back as they may have been overcompensating for poor alignment from the previous mattress. If you’re finding that you are experiencing the same back pain in a number of mattresses, the key is to keep experimenting with different methods on the same mattress to see if that helps. Experiencing Neck & Shoulder Pain ? While adjusting to a new mattress, it can be quite common to experience some pain, especially in high-pressure areas, such as the neck and shoulders. For this reason, we put together some guidance on how we can navigate you through this transition. It doesn’t have to be painful! One common explanation for neck and shoulder pain while sleeping is that your neck and shoulders may not be properly supported or aligned with the rest of your body. The first thing we suggest is to switch or adjust your pillow, as this will help to align your head and spine. Adjusting the loft of your pillow when acclimating to a new mattress is important, as using your previous pillows may put more strain on your neck and shoulders – due to the relationship your old mattress and pillows had in aligning your spine. If you’re a back or stomach sleeper, we recommend trying a pillow with a flatter profile. If you’re a side sleeper, try a thicker or loftier pillow. Another method you can use to prevent neck and shoulder pain is changing the position of your pillows during sleep. If you like to sleep on your side, one option is to wedge a pillow behind your back, which will relieve pressure from your shoulder. Another method you can try is hugging a pillow from your top arm, which will help to promote correct spinal alignment while you sleep. Alternatively, we would like to recommend looking at our Pillows which are adjustable, making them perfect to soothe pain. If you would like to take a closer look at our Pillow, click here.
