Your mattress and your back

The importance of a good mattress and back pain.

   In my last newsletter, I talked about the importance of a good and supportive mattress.  I have had many patients who assumed that their mattress would be there for their entire life.  They never thought that the mattress that they spent six to eight hours out of twenty-four could ever cause or greatly contribute to back pain or even neck pain (which I find can be aggravated also by a non-supportive pillow).  In my experience, once you realize this, you buy a new mattress (or a proper pillow), you will experience noticable relief but even with chiropractic care, can take several weeks longer for total relief.

   I have previously talked about what you can look for on your mattress and what you can do to make it last longer.  If you are interested, reply to this blog and I will post my suggestions on how to make your mattress last longer.
