How a good mattress can help relieve pressure points

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

Are you aware of your pressure points while sleeping? According to sleep doctor Michael Decker, PHD, RN, lying on any part of your body for a long period of time reduces the blood flow to that area. This creates the feeling of discomfort, as your nerve cells tell your brain you need to roll over. If your mattress isn’t good enough to relieve the areas you feel this sensation the most, otherwise known as pressure points, you might find yourself tossing and turning throughout the night. That’s why it’s important to find a mattress that is perfect for supporting your frame and shape.

For maximum comfort, your weight must be evenly distributed throughout your body. As Mattress Advisor points out, everyone’s unique body type, height, and weight means that certain parts of your body will touch your mattress before others. As a result, these parts of your body must be allowed to sink deeper into the bed so the rest of your body can be supported.

A memory foam or a latex foam mattress will be flexible enough to adapt to different body shapes and sizes. Furthermore, some people may require different levels of mattress firmness and you can easily choose from conventional foam mattresses with varying levels of density.
