Orthopaedic Mattress buying guide

An orthopaedic mattress is a special type of mattress designed to offer a firmer sleep surface, offering targeted support for your back and joints. Mattress manufacturers first created this invention of orthopaedic mattresses in the 1950s when they discovered the benefits of orthopaedic support.

The concept of orthopaedics focuses precisely at the function of the spine and other joints, and these mattresses are usually used by people who suffer from back problems. With that said, we have realised, over the years, orthopaedic mattresses have become more than just a solution to back pain and are being used by others to prevent it too.

Here is Sleep Expresses’ guide on buying an Orthopaedic Mattress.

Orthopaedic mattresses: the benefits

Specially intended to offer exceptional support and comfort, an orthopaedic mattress delivers many benefits:

  • Full body support
  • The firmness of an orthopaedic mattress delivers optimum push-back for all sleep positions
  • Even weight distribution so stops the accumulation on pressure points, in particular on your neck, back and hips.
  • Offers the best spinal alignment to help alleviate stress on the spine so effective reduces back ache.
  • Promotes a healthy sleep posture and better blood circulation in the night.

How do orthopaedic mattresses help you?

It’s amazing how much time of our lives we spend in bed – research suggests we spend as much as 26 years of our lives laying in our beds, so it’s no good, if you’re not getting the best night’s sleep.

Supportive sleep surfaces are extremely vital for those looking for a restful night’s sleep. Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to help people who suffer from discomfort in bed, and wake up with aches and pains. Research suggests that mattresses lose their support from the seven-year mark onwards, and by year ten, it’s vital to invest in a good quality mattress to sustain the quality of sleep you need to feel refreshed each day.

Inspired by Sleep Science

The orthopaedic mattress invention has been heavily influenced by the medical study of

orthopaedics, which chiefly centres on the analysis of disorders and irregularities in the spine and joints, an orthopaedic mattress is specifically designed to alleviate these issues.

The science behind is that, with the firm grade of mattress, it will stop the middle of your body from sinking into the mattress, to fully support your spine. Softer mattress alternatives don’t provide the same level of support and you will find your midsection tends to sink into the mattress which means your spine is slightly bent in an unnatural way, which can cause back pain.

Is an orthopaedic mattress right for me?

An Orthopaedic mattress is perfect for you if:

  • You suffer from back and join paint
  • You prefer a firm grade mattress
  • You want to improve your sleep posture alignment
  • You need pressure relief

How long does an orthopaedic mattress last?

Similar to all other mattress types, it is recommended that you change your mattress every ten years but it is said that it will start losing its firmness after seven so you may want to replace it sooner. It is particularly vital to stick to this recommendation if you have an orthopaedic mattress.

After seven years you are no longer getting the orthopaedic support you require. This could cause your back and joint pains to resurface.
