What Lumbar Support Is and Why You Need It

Lumbar support in your mattress helps comfort the vulnerable, lower part of your back.

Sleep is a vitally important part of good health. Without proper sleep and rest for your body, it can’t heal from stress or injury and be ready for the next day. Yes, not getting a good night’s sleep can be a real pain in the neck. For lots of people that good sleep is elusive because of different pain, one in their back. With a good mattress, however – one that provides lumbar support – that problem can be fixed so you have the comfort you need to sleep.

What Is The Lumbar?

The lumbar region is another name for the lower back, the lower five vertebrae between the tailbone and the diaphragm. This back region can be easily stressed by lifting heavy objects incorrectly, having poor posture, or having weak core muscles. Proper support of the lumbar region is the best way to alleviate this common pain, which is why “lumbar support” is such a common addition to seats, from office chairs to cars. You can also benefit from having lumbar support from your mattress

What Beds Can Help?

If you have the budget for a new mattress, look for one that offers support for the lumbar region. One solution is a hybrid bed that offers both innerspring and memory foam so that the shoulders and hips sink in a bit, but the spine is supported and kept in alignment. A bed with an adjustable base is another good choice. An adjustable base allows you to customize your sleep experience and position your bed precisely so that you get good support where you need it. 

What Else Can Help?

Sometimes a new mattress or a whole new bed simply isn’t in the cards. You can adjust your sleep position without changing your mattress by adding a new pillow to your bed. If you usually sleep on your side, placing a pillow between your knees can help your back pain. The pillow helps to align your hips, pelvis, and spine. If you usually sleep on your stomach, put the pillow under your abdomen. If you sleep on your back and still need relief from back pain, slip the pillow under your knees.
