Is Your Bad Bed Causing You Pain?
Millions of Americans are currently suffering from back pain and one of the leading causes of this pain can be traced back to sleeping in odd positions or continuing to sleep on a bad bed. When we say bad, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the mattress itself is bad. In fact, it could just be your box spring being worn out. If you feel like you have back pain most often after sleeping, come see us! Chiropractic care is perfect for this kind of thing. Your spine may need to be adjusted, especially if it has been crunched in a harmful position for several nights in a row.
Honestly, most people spend approximately one third of their life sleeping. With that being said, doesn’t it make sense that sleeping properly, without pain would be important? There are steps to getting rid of that back pain caused by your bad bed! First, you can choose to come in to see a chiropractor for your spinal adjustments. In some cases, one adjustment just isn’t enough. If you’ve been “abusing” your back for a long while then it may take longer to retrain your spine to stay put.
The second step, after chiropractic care, is that you need to address the main source of the problem. If you’ve ruled out other sources of your pain and it seems most logical that something about your mattress isn’t agreeing with you then you need to fix that problem so that your spinal pain doesn’t keep occurring.
Most mattress experts, that are willing to tell you the truth, will tell you to start from the ground up. Make sure the bed frame is secure with a solid center support to avoid the mattress from sagging. Look at the box spring and if it has actual coils inside then you might want to place a piece of plywood on top of it. A better option would be to get rid of it completely and put the whole mattress on a flat platform.
We hope that this helps someone out there!
