      Choose the right mattress to stay pain free

      If you have chronic pain, it’s very important to choose the right mattress. Here are some expert tips to help you get a good night’s sleep with the right mattress.

      A hard mattress is not always better

      Many chronic pain sufferers are advised to use a hard mattress. However, for those with chronic pain, this is not necessarily a good thing. A research study conducted on 300 people with low back pain had the following results. They slept on mattresses that were categorized as either “medium-firm” or “firm.” After the 90-day study, participants who had slept on medium-firm mattresses had less pain while lying in bed and while awake compared to those who had slept on firm mattresses.

      Rotate your mattress

      Most mattress companies ask you to rotate or flip your mattress every three or four months. Of course, if you have a pillow top, this can’t be done. To decide when a rotation is needed, check if the mattress sags, see if you have pain when you wake up and how you feel sleeping on it.

      Go for a non-toxic mattress

      If you suffer from certain autoimmune conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, household chemicals can cause flareups. Many mattresses tend to give off a chemical odor and may contain toxic ingredients such as plastics, foam, and synthetic latex manufactured with potentially harmful petroleum-based chemicals and flame-retardant chemical.

      Non-toxic mattresses on the other hand, are made from organic cotton, natural latex, and organic bamboo. However, not all organic mattresses are the same. Some are better, look for the two certifications that outline the most stringent qualifications, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and, for mattresses that contain latex, the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is another one to look out for. Though this does not mean the mattress’s materials are organic, it has made limits on the amount of harmful chemicals and volatile organic compounds that end up in the final product.
