When using a traditionally sprung mattress, you will inevitably experience undue stress at various pressure points along your body. The stress that is caused at these points can lead to aches and pains, not only at the site if these pressure points, but on other parts of the body where the tension in increased as they try to alleviate the stress that is caused at these pressure points. In order to provide the support for your body, traditionally sprung mattresses use numerous springs that exert pressure upwards and against your body as you lie down, without this, these mattresses would not be supporting your body at all. Therefore, even if a traditionally sprung mattress may seem particularly soft or comfortable, your body is still not supported as evenly as it could be.
Memory foam works in a completely different way; rather than exerting pressure in the way that traditionally sprung mattresses do, it supports your whole body thanks to the way in which the material moulds itself to the contours of your body as you lie on it. The effect of this is that your whole body can be in contact with the bed, which prevents the pressure points that occur with other mattresses. Rather than relying on the points of your body that are most likely to be in contact with the surface - for example your joints, such as the hips and shoulder - to support your body, each part of the body can support itself evenly, negating the causes of pressure points. Furthermore, by supporting your whole body, the material enables your body to keep its natural, healthy posture by keeping your body and spine straight and aligned.
By relieving these pressure points and aligning the body, you will find that the aches and pains that other mattresses cause simply do not occur, in fact, the intelligent design and phenomenal comfort can help to alleviate other aches and pains that you may have picked up during your regular day to day life. So, not only is memory foam incredibly comfortable, but it can have many positive benefits to your body and general well-being.
By improving the comfort that our body receives as we sleep, this will inevitably lead to a better quality of sleep. The aches and pains that other mattresses not only fail to prevent, but can even contribute to, can be a primary factor in preventing us from sleeping properly, waking us up throughout the night, even if you are not always aware of it. By improving your sleep you will feel more energized and awake during the day. There are also many positive health benefits to sleeping well and improving the quality of your sleep. So, there couldn’t be a better reason to improve your mattress and to start getting the kind of comfort, and excellent levels of sleep, that will improve the way you feel not only at night, but during the day and throughout your life.
