Avoiding back and back pain with the right bed
Back pain develops into the number one common disease in Germany. This does not only affect adult Germans, more and more often it affects young people or even schoolchildren. The reason is above all lack of exercise and overweight. In addition, the right sleeping position plays an important role in protecting the back. About a third of our lives are spent in the bedroom. That is why the right sleeping pad is sometimes the most important prerequisite for keeping your back in top condition for years to come. With the right bed and matching mattress you can avoid back pain and misalignments. Unfortunately, the topic "sleep & ldquo; still paying too little attention. Not everyone can tell how much healthy potential there is in the right choice of bed.
This burdens the back during sleep
In sleep, unlike the day, you lose most of your control over your body. For the most part, the spinal column relies on the support and support of the mattress and the bed during the night. If the bed is perfectly adapted to the personal needs of the sleeper, it contributes to the substantial recovery of the spine. She can recover during the night from the exertions of the day and gather new strength for the next day. On the other hand, if the bed is of poor quality, there is hardly any recovery and the poor sleep conditions also put additional strain on the spine. The typical defects are for example old and worn beds and mattresses, which sag. In such beds the spine has no support and support, it also hangs. Previously, a board in bed was recommended for back pain, but this did the opposite - the unnatural curvature of the spine brought with it additional discomfort. I> Incorrectly adjusted pillows and bed headboards, foot repositioning and too high sleeping angles put strain on the spinal column anew. The misalignments also prevent the natural and physiological lying position. After such a night you wake up quite tired and listless, you can literally feel your back. Without proper sleep, the intervertebral discs and back muscles can hardly regenerate at night, leading to a premature aging process in this area.
The right bed position is responsible for a healthy spine
How to bed so sleeps one. A healthy and good bed should allow the spinal column to lie down as far as possible to maintain its natural shape in the back and side position. In plain language, this means that the shoulder area should sink in a little, the waist is well supported and the pelvis is lying on a flexible pad, so that there is no pressure on the hips. Optimal storage is thus on a bed with flexible base. A well-coordinated mattress then rounds things up. In length, a good bed or sofa bed should be about 20 inches longer than the person who will sleep on it. At least 100 to 120 centimeters of space should be reserved for each sleeping person, every additional centimeter provides more sleeping comfort.
During the night, you change your sleeping position 40 to 60 times on average - but the slatted frame should be extremely flexible. Recommended here is a grid of plastic plates, which are built from small and coupled plates or spring elements and ensure the body a flexible position at night. For the hips and shoulders, the beds should definitely offer adjustment options. If the bed has such special zones, the body can sink in and the spine can assume a natural position.
The batten distances should be about four to five centimeters. If they are taller, you run the risk of sagging at night with your mattress. High quality beds can be customized to suit the user. It can also be optimally adjusted to changing requirements, such as body weight, age or health status. In addition to the bed, the indoor climate is crucial for a healthy and restful sleep. A room temperature of 18 degrees and humidity of 50 percent is best for sleep.
