According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), back pain is more than a moderate problem with more than 31 million Americans experiencing pain in their lower backs at any given point in time. Half of all Americans who work admit to having symptoms of back pain every year, the ACA further reports.
If you’re experiencing pain and achiness upon waking in the morning and/or throughout the day, the culprit may be your mattress. While it’s a little difficult to imagine one mattress being the best mattress for back pain, the truth is that there are some mattresses out there that are better than others are for combating specific kinds of pain and soreness.
Pressure points are any area on body (usually the surface) that are sensitive to pressure. Some people suffering from fibromyalgia experience tender trigger points, and thus are on a constant lookout to help relieve the pain of these tender spots. Sleeping on the wrong mattress can result in pressure point discomfort too — and a night of tossing and turning, a morning awakening of aches and pains, and a day feeling tired and not at your best. Selecting the best mattress for pressure points so you can sleep involves choosing a mattress that distributes your body weight evenly.
