Although waterbeds were first conceived in the late 1800s the modern bed that we’re familiar with was developed in 1968. Waterbeds were initially popular for their ability to be heated (which was popular in colder climates) and for their ability to relieve pressure from the spine as the water in the bed conformed to the shape of the person using it. However, this same \"free flow\" design that relieves spinal pressure also results in waves being created each time weight is shifted on the bed. These waves can be distracting and can interrupt sleep. Waterbeds are difficult to move and are also prone to leaks, but last longer than most coil mattresses and are dust mite free.
In conjunction with the type of back pain you suffer from, another factor to consider is the position in which you sleep. If you have a lumbar disc problem then sleeping on your stomach with a flat pillow under your stomach and hips is probably the most comfortable position for you because it reduces stress on the degenerated disc in your lower back. A firmer mattress is best for sleeping on your stomach while a softer mattress will cause an uncomfortable arch in your back that will worsen your condition.
There have been comparisons made between memory foam mattresses and spring mattresses and a lot of people could attest that they found sleeping on memory foam mattresses to be better. Lying on a spring mattress does feel nice but when it comes to body contouring as well as spinal support a spring mattress do not even comes close to what the memory foam mattress could give. When you use a spring mattress, your body conforms to it. While your weight is on the spring mattress, the springs exert a resisting force against your body. A spring mattress relies only on a varied number of springs that are pushing back against you with all of them having the same force. Since your body does not push evenly against those springs, it is impossible for you to get proper support. And because of this and the fact that you are the one who is adjusting to the spring mattress’s shape, your pressure points will lead to poor blood circulation and you would probably be complaining about body pains or sore muscles or stiffness when you wake up in the morning.
Dispose of your old mattress. If you’ve determined you need a new mattress because you are no longer receiving the support you need, then the last thing you should be doing is passing that discomfort on to someone else. Rather than selling your mattress or passing it on to a family member or friend, check to see if the purchase of your new bed includes some sort of disposal for your old mattress. Frequently, the folks who deliver your new mattress will be able to take away your old bed. If you’re embarrassed by the condition of an old, worn out mattress, you can use an old bed sheet as an inexpensive solution. Simply cover the old mattress with the old bed sheet, send it off and enjoy your new bed!
After returning home and researching the internet, we now know what the big mattress manufacturers are doing. You will find that the majority of the large mattress manufacturers, who have been in business for generations, have since resold their companies. Many of these new owners and share holders are interested in generating large, immediate returns on their investments. They have redesigned and marketed their mattresses to put big profits in their pockets, but the shortcuts they are making to increase their profits are reducing the useful life of their mattresses. You do the math. If they all get together and decide to cut the life of their products in half, we consumers are forced to buy their products MORE OFTEN and they all profit even more. For example: One of their shortcuts and marketing tactics is designed to sell you on the benefits of purchasing a \"one-sided\" mattress, but in reality, the life of your mattress has been cut in half and you will need to buy at least twice as many mattresses in your lifetime if you want to sleep comfortably. In my search for the perfect latex mattress, I actually spoke to one mattress store owner years ago who admitted she wished they would ’bring back’ the 2-sided latex mattresses.
