How Your Mattress Can Improve Sleep and Back Pain

Back pain and sleep: A vicious cycle.


Back pain and sleep have a very close relationship. Scientific research by Alsaadi et al has found that back pain can severely impact your ability to get to sleep and stay asleep.
And the lack of sound sleep increases back pain as it’s been found that sleep deprivation “increases sensitivity to pain by numbing the brains pain killing response”.
It’s a terrible, vicious cycle that often leads to a downward spiral of less and poorer quality sleep and more pain.

Turning a negative back pain cycle into a positive one.

However, this negative cycle can be transformed into a positive one. There are a handful of ways you can ease your body into better, more restorative sleep despite having back pain, and that superior sleep will then lead you to less back pain.
This becomes a positive reinforcing cycle, with every night of sound sleep producing less pain symptoms and healing your back just a little bit more, getting you closer and closer to a back, that’s truly back to normal.
And one of the things that can most dramatically improve your sleep if you have back pain is investing in a high-quality mattress that really supports your back.

Mattress choice has been scientifically proven to improve sleep and reduce back pain.


A study by Bert et al took 59 people (30 women and 29 men) with pain and compromised sleep but no clinical history of disturbed sleep.
They got them to report back discomfort levels in their own beds, daily, for 28 nights prior to starting the study to form a baseline. In the study the researchers changed their mattress and got them to again rate their sleep quality and back discomfort.

“The researchers found that the new mattresses notably both increased sleep quality and reduced back discomfort.”

This robust scientific study proves that investing in the right mattress can go a long way in improving sleep and reducing back pain and is one of the only things that can break that vicious cycle mentioned above.
