Back Ache !
« on: 06/05/2006 18:48:48 »
I have back ache !

I'm pretty sure it's from my posture from sitting here typing these posts !..

Do you think sleeping on the floor would help ?

Is it a fallacy that sleeping on a hard surface is good for your spine ?

Hi Neilep,

you could try one of those new-fangled "memory foam" mattresses, if you have plenty of cash to spare:-

" The Myth Behind: "The Firmer the Mattress, the Better"

Some people love a hard mattress and can even get comfortable on a futon or the floor. But if you wake up feeling battered, you're not doing your body any favor. "There's no truth to the adage that a harder bed is better," says Bergin. "Especially as we get older we need both support and relief from pressure."

"We used to think waterbeds were the best bed, and for the majority of individuals, they probably are. They're especially good for people who have diabetes and can develop ulcers from pressure. But as you get older, a waterbed doesn't provide adequate support."

Bergin says the memory foam mattress is best for anyone with back pain or osteoarthritis. The term "memory foam" is often misunderstood. It doesn't mean the mattress remembers the contours of your body but that the mattress returns to its original flat plane once you get up. Memory foam is made of heat and pressure sensitive material that responds to your body temperature and conforms to near-perfect pressure, weight distribution, and support.

"It gets as close to weightless sleep as possible," says Bergin. "It supports the entire body at all the pressure points as though you're floating. It really is a remarkable discovery. Unfortunately a high-quality mattress that will last 20 years without being flipped is high priced, about $1,800 to $2,500."

He recently bought a Tempur-Pedic mattress, which uses the memory foam developed by NASA.

A number of manufacturers make memory foam mattresses or top conventional mattresses with a layer of it. "

" With the average pillow, 30% of its weight is comprised of dead human skins scales and dust mite allergen,
 (the major source of allergen from dust mites is their fecal matter and the remains of dead mites).
  Can you imagine how much heavier your mattress has become? "
http://www.carpetbuyershandbook.com/dust_mites.htm

If the above is true I would not wish to sleep on the same mattress for "20 years", no matter how much it cost.

My neighbour suffers from pagets disease which gives him a lot of pain. He tells me that putting a memory foam topper on top of his mattress has enabled him to sleep peacefully through the night.

I recently interviewed my neighbour who is now in a lot of pain from his Pagets disease. I found that the topper he is using isn't memory foam at all but a very clever and cheaper alternative which still works surprisingly well. I wrote an article about it here newbielink:http://www.thememoryfoammattress.com/articles/memory-foam-mattress-topper-alternative-relieves-pagets-disease-symptoms.php [nonactive]
