80% of the UK population will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Common causes of back pain include bad posture, bending awkwardly, heavy lifting, or a road or sports accident. Back pain can be the cause of many sleepless nights. This means it is important to have a bed and mattress that that provides support for your back. Otherwise a poor mattress can worsen back pain through bad sleeping posture, strained muscles and preventing alignment of the spine. Alternatively, a supportive mattress helps reduce lower back pain by allowing the structures in the spine to rest and rejuvenate during the night.
PUTTING THE MAMMOTH MATTRESS TO THE TEST
Dr Jason Ellis is one of the world’s most respected experts on sleep. His team tested the Mammoth Performance mattress against 3 key sleep elements. They found that sleep efficiency, sleep enjoyment and sleep onset latency were all increased when sleeping on a Mammoth mattress compared to their current mattresses at home.
The reason for Mammoth mattresses success is they incorporate a variety of advanced technologies to allow them to mould perfectly to your body. This ensures the support you need throughout the night. What’s more, Mammoth uses High-Specification Medical Grade foam, which is ideal for alleviating back problems as it keeps your spine perfectly aligned during the night.
DON’T SWEAT IT WITH A MAMMOTH MATTRESS
Many people with back problems opt for memory foam mattresses. However, the downside of this is they trap heat, resulting in overheating throughout the night. Alternatively, the Medical Grade foam of Mammoth mattresses include V-Max Cell Technology. This is a series of ‘V’ shaped cells combining perfect pressure relief, with cooling airflow and moisture evaporation. This technology prevents your body from overheating at night, resulting in a far more comfortable and sound night’s sleep.
MAMMOTH MATTRESSES TO IMPROVE SLEEP
The technology within Mammoth mattresses is beneficial for everyone but particularly for those with back problems. Disturbed sleep because of aches and pains can be resolved by changing to a Mammoth mattress, leading to a much more enjoyable and enhanced night’s sleep.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT MATTRESS
Sleep is key to achieving a healthy lifestyle and we should all aim for 8 hours sleep a night. This is the requirement for helping the body rest and repair itself from the strains of daily life. However, people are often unaware that the reason for poor sleep can be down to their mattress. But if you are waking with aches and pains that tend to wear off throughout the day then it could well be down to a poor choice of bed and mattress. Mattresses should be replaced every 7 years to ensure they are giving you the best night’s sleep possible through sustained support and comfort.
