When it’s time to purchase a new mattress, you may hear multiple different “facts” about what kind of mattress is best for you. Before you believe anything, you should know that many of these “facts” are actually myths, and can lead in to make the wrong decision. Here are some of the top mattress myths debunked to help you make the right choice for your new mattress.
A Firm Mattress Is Best For A Bad Back
While you may hear that a firm mattress is best for your back, it’s not necessarily true. To minimize pain and discomfort, your mattress should conform to your sleeping position and provide support for all areas of your body. A very firm mattress may offer good support, but it won’t provide any comfortability, which can result in pressure point pain. A medium-firm mattress will be equally comfortable and supportive, offering the best solution for back problems.
A Mattress Should Be Flipped Every Few Months
You may hear that you should flip your mattress every few months to keep it in good condition, but most mattresses are one-sided and should never be flipped. If you’re worried about keeping your mattress in great shape, try sleeping in a variety of positions and places on the mattress, so it compresses evenly. Also, rotate your mattress instead of flipping it every few months- monthly for the first six months, then once every three months.
The Right Mattress Stops Tossing And Turning
Most adults move around during the night as much as 75 times, whether it’s a simple twitch or tossing from side to side. A mattress won’t prevent tossing and turning completely, as we move during the night to alleviate pressure point pain and reduce stress on our body. However, a good mattress should reduce how much you move at night by providing pressure point relief, allowing you to slip into a deeper REM sleep.
