Is a hard mattress really better for back pain?

– Wake up with pain during the night 
– Toss and turn till dawn
– Convinced the bed is getting old
– But the partner sleeps just fine
– Not want to be ‘difficult’ so forget it
– Put up with the sore all day
– Wake up with pain, again 
– Put up with the discomfort for months
– Confused, tired, and hurt.
– Crawl out of bed with a worn-out body
– Repeat daily
– See no sign of recovery
– Once manageable pain grows into lifelong injuries

1 in 3 Australians suffers from poor quality sleep.

Of course, there are many causes of poor sleep, but one of the main reasons is sleeping on the wrong mattress.

Especially for those who have chronic conditions such as:

– Back pain
– Sciatica
– Osteoarthritis
– And people who recently have surgeries done

Not only does their bed give them a bad night’s sleep, but it also worsens their recovery.

8 hours of recovery somehow turn into 8 hours of battling.

So how should pick our bed?

Here are the top 3 mistakes people make when choosing the right mattress.

Mistake #1:
They think a hard/ firm mattress is better for back pain

Hard doesn’t mean supportive.

The right mattress not only should support your body weight, but it should also conform to the natural curve of your spine.

Having just a hard/ firm surface isn’t enough.

Mistake #2:
They buy the ‘best’ mattress, not the right mattress

Everyone’s sleep habit is different.

How the mattress works for other people doesn’t necessarily mean how it will work for you.

Are they a side sleeper? 
Back sleeper? Combination?
How heavy are they? What about the partner?
What’s their medical condition?

Buying a mattress just based on reviews or claims is not always a good idea.

Mistake #3:
They don’t “sleep” on it

The comfort of your bed shouldn’t just be how you feel when you lay on it, but how you feel when you wake up in the morning.

Always look for a store who offers a trial period.

If you’re hunting for a new mattress, talk a sleep expert first who can help you narrow down your options so you don’t have to spend hours on trying everything.

After all, we spend 1/3 of our lives on the bed.

Finding the right mattress shouldn’t be guesswork.

“It was the best thing we ever done for Mum! Mum suffers from back and shoulder issues and this bed is a dream for her!“ – Leah Andrews

My back problems and headaches are gone. Can’t thank the staff enough. Don’t know why I didn’t buy a new mattress sooner.” – Bob Rojewski

“Sunday afternoon I thought I am just going to another bedding store listening to sales pitches again. We spent about 30 mins in the showroom without any pressure or disturbance from salesman which was fantastic. We made our choice and it was delivered the next day. We also got a follow up call from Bowie to check if we are happy with new mattress. We absolutely love our new mattress“ – Evan C
