Dr. FreedmanAccording to “conventional wisdom,” hard mattresses are best for people with back pain. However, a well-designed study found that, over the period of one month, those sleeping on hard mattresses did slightly worse in terms of back symptoms and sleep quality than those sleeping on either bodyconforming foam mattresses or water beds. It seems that a hard mattress is more apt to exert more pressure on hips, shoulders, and other areas of the body than its softer counterparts. As a result, sleepers are more likely to toss and turn. Another study, however, found that a “pressure relief” mattress did not induce better sleep than a conventional mattress. The best mattress is the one on which you feel most comfortable.

Our concern is the total health of our patients. At FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, we take a complete look at the overall picture and formulate lifestyle changes that will help them maintain their health. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment and procedures – let us help you. Please call 617.472.4220 to schedule an appointment. We’re located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy, where our goal is to understand and meet your needs. We are able to adjust patients sitting, standing, or lying down to accommodate any level of discomfort.

P.S. When shopping for a new mattress, bear in mind that there are no industry-wide standards about the definition of “firm,” “extra firm,” and other terms applied to mattresses.
