Back Pain Relief with Bunk and Murphy Beds

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Bunk beds and murphy beds are great if you live in a small space. Bunk beds are often used for small children, teenagers or college students. Murphy beds are ideal for studio apartments because these beds pull out of the wall.

The problem with these beds is that they can cause some back pain. Innerspring mattresses are the most common mattress used with bunk beds and murphy beds. Additionally, bunk bed/murphy bed innerspring mattresses are thinner than regular innerspring mattresses, so they are bound to offer less support and comfort.

The most important thing to consider when buying a bunk bed or murphy bed is how the bed is made. Good quality beds tend to cause less back pain than poor quality beds. Research the best brands of bunk beds and murphy beds before making your purchase. Read customer reviews to see which beds receive better customer satisfaction ratings. Lately, foam mattresses have been being used for bunk beds and murphy beds. These beds don’t offer the most ideal support system (because they have to stay compact) it is better to use a foam mattress. Foam mattresses can eliminate back pain by reducing pressure points. Foam mattresses can also keep the back and spine properly aligned while resting (something that innerspring mattresses cannot offer).

Sleeping on a bunk bed or murphy bed does not have to be uncomfortable. Your comfort should absolutely not be jeopardized just because you need a compact bed. Foam mattresses are the perfect thing to eliminate back pain with a bunk bed or murphy bed. Be sure to choose a top-quality foam mattress. Cheap foam mattresses don’t provide any support or added benefits. You don’t have to suffer from back pain just because you sleep on a murphy bed or bunk bed. Purchase a good quality bunk bed or murphy bed with a top quality memory foam mattress to reduce and eliminate back pain.

Stop wasting your time and get a new mattress

Stop wasting your time, get a new mattress

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of your life. The average person sleeps about one-third of his/her entire life. The recommended length of sleep per day is 8 hours, or 1/3 of every day. Too many people don’t get the sleep they need. This drastically affects every aspect of one’s life.

Dr. Bert Jacobson is a Professor at Oklahoma State University. He says, “Sleep deprivation impacts us physically, which can negatively affect our coordination, agility, mood, and energy. For the ‘average’ person, out research shows that better sleep quality can be as simple as a new mattress.”

Oklahoma State University recently conducted an interesting sleep study. They found that a new mattress provides sleepers with significant improvements when compared to sleeping on a mattress that was five years old or older. These improvements include:

-70.8 percent increase in sleep comfort
-62.0 percent increase in sleep quality
-55.3 percent decrease in back pain
-50.7 percent decrease in spine stiffness

A new mattress really can make the difference between a good night’s sleep and a terrible one. Don’t let your body take the brunt of sleep deprivation any longer. New mattresses are inexpensive and definitely worth the investment. Latex foam mattresses are the most popular type of mattress. Memory foam mattresses come in second with air mattresses and waterbeds tying for fourth place. Innerspring mattresses aren’t as popular when it comes to comfort but are still widely available because they are so inexpensive.

What will it take for you to finally invest in a new mattress?

Natural Latex Mattress Review & Testimonial

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

Rocky Mountain Mattress,
We ordered a Natural Latex Mattress, 3 inch queen size. My God how wonderful it is. I cannot believe it feels so great and comfortable. I sleep like a log now. It feels new every night I go to bed. I never have the dents in the mattress that is common with most mattresses. My replaced hips used to feel so painful on a regular mattress but now I am in heaven.

Thank You, Thank You. Shay Williams.

Sleep & Physical Performance; What To Do If You Are Tossing & Turning All Night

Monday, February 15th, 2010

It shouldn’t be news to you that sleep directly affects your physical performance. If you aren’t getting the proper amount of sleep, you won’t be able to perform as well as if you did. If you are up tossing and turning all night, you won’t be as effective the next day.

Countless studies have been conducted that show the link between sleep and physical performance. The Better Sleep Council recently conducted a nationwide survey. Here are some direct statistics from the Better Sleep Council (BSC):

-“Respondents getting nine hours of sleep or more are more likely to engage in higher-intensity workouts (biking, running, weight lifting, etc).”
-“Seven in 10 (or 70 percent) report that they are not getting the recommended amount of sleep needed each night (7.5 hours or more) to perform at their best each day.”

Dr. Bert Jacobson, a professor and the head of the School of Educational Studies at Oklahoma State University said, “Sleep deprivation impacts us physically, which can negatively affect our coordination, agility, mood and energy. Research shows that sleeping better and longer leads to improvements in athletic performance, including faster sprint time, better endurance, lower heart rate and even improved mood and higher levels of energy during a workout.”

The key to getting enough sleep is having the right mattress. Survey respondents agreed that they are able to sleep better and longer on a new mattress, rather than an old one. Eighty-one percent of Americans admit that they wake up with neck, back or shoulder pain.

The thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have to live like this. It is extremely smart to invest in a good quality mattress. You should be sleeping on a mattress that helps you sleep instead of one that causes you to toss and turn all night long. The BSC recommends that you evaluate and replace your mattress every 5-7 years to enjoy optimal comfort and support.

Sleep does directly affect your physical performance. If your physical performance is severely lacking, you might want to take a look at the amount and quality of sleep that you get.
