Are Tempur Mattresses Good for Bad Backs

If you’re waking up with back pain every morning, then you may have a mattress that isn’t supporting you the way it should. 

Everybody has different needs when it comes to a mattress, but Tempur may be a good option for those who are looking for extra support when they sleep.

Tempur Technology

Tempur originates back to NASA technology where the viscoelastic material was created to absorb g-shock during space travel.

But the material was so comfortable and supportive, it was soon developed into the first memory foam mattress.

Whilst other brands have tried to create something similar to Tempur, their secret formula has been impossible to recreate.

Tempur is revolutionary in its ability to contour around your body and give you a feeling of weightlessness, relieving pressure from your joints.

Why do I wake up with back pain?

Waking up with back pain is more common than you may think.

When I worked for Bensons for Beds, at least 7/10 customers would discuss waking up with back pain and it wasn’t just the older customers that had this problem.

It’s estimated around 80% of people will experience back pain at some point during their life.

And this is often caused by having a mattress that isn’t supporting you properly.

A mattress that is too firm will put pressure on your joints and straighten out your back in an unnatural way which is bad for your spine.

Likewise, a mattress that is too soft will bend your spine too much during the night.

Why Tempur is great for your back

Tempur’s pressure-relieving technology contours around your body and helps your spine align in its natural curved position during the night.

If you’re a side sleeper, it will support your joints during the night and allow your hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress instead of pushing back against them.

Tempur also helps to stop you tossing and turning during the night and it will absorb the motion of your partner, so you shouldn’t feel them moving around either.

Tempur has been used in the healthcare sector for years because of its ability to respond instantly to the most sensitive areas of your body.

They even make pillows with the same viscoelastic material to support your neck and shoulders whilst you sleep.

Don’t take our word for it

It’s not for us to decide if a Tempur mattress is right for you and only your body can tell you what feels good.  

Tempur offers a range of different firmness’s to suit each person, so there are plenty of different options to choose from.

It’s difficult to know if a mattress is going to be comfortable after just laying down on it once or looking at reviews online.

That’s why Tempur offers a 100-night trial on all of their mattresses, so even if you make the wrong choice, you can refund or exchange for something more suitable.
