For four out of five Australians, back pain is a significant problem.
If you are one of them, a key cause may be the mattress you are sleeping on. The perfect bed for you should provide correct postural alignment and complete comfort. It should support your whole body without a single pressure point. For even the most supportive mattress, the position in which you sleep may also contribute to a better night’s sleep and a reduction in back pain.
The comfort and pain reduction you experience from any sleeping position may be increased through the use of a well-suited pillow.
Doing a variety of different stretches in bed each evening can also help to reduce back pain – learn more here.
