Guide: For people with spinal diseases such as lumbar muscle strain and back pain, it is indeed necessary to sleep on a hard mattress to effectively eliminate the pressure of weight and weight on the intervertebral disc, but this "hardness" needs to be mastered. And "location".
"Sleep on a hard board and use a hard mattress" has always been regarded by the Chinese as a good habit to protect their backs and maintain their health. Even many doctors recommend that patients with spine sleep on hard mattresses. Many people firmly believe that "the harder the mattress, the better", but this is not the case. For people with spine diseases such as lumbar muscle strain and back pain, it is indeed necessary to sleep on a hard mattress to effectively eliminate the pressure on the intervertebral discs from weight bearing and weight. However, this "hardness" requires a good grasp of "degree" and " Location".
Let's talk about "degree" first.
Whether it is too hard or too soft a mattress, it will change the natural physiological curvature of the spine.
The human body has a unique curve, not a single plane. Sleeping on a mattress that is too hard and a single hardness, only the head, back, buttocks, and heels can bear the pressure, which will make the spine in a state of stiffness and tension. The back muscles provide support, which not only fails to achieve the desired relaxation effect, but also forms a confrontation between the mattress and the body. On the other hand, a mattress that is too soft will not support the weight of the human body, change the normal curve of the body, and cause symptoms such as hunched over.
So, how can we accurately determine the degree of softness and hardness of the mattress? When buying ordinary mattresses, there is basically no problem to solve, only by feeling. Because the choice of whether the mattress is soft or hard involves many issues, such as height, physical condition, and disease states, such as cervical spondylosis, frozen shoulder, lumbar muscle strain, etc. It's not that you feel comfortable sleeping on a soft mattress, it really suits you, but there are no hard indicators to judge, you can only rely on your feelings. But it feels too illusory. It is easy to deviate due to the different feelings of softness and hardness of each person. It is easy to be induced. For example, the same mattress, under the strong praise and guidance of the shopping guide, you will feel very comfortable , It fits the body very well, but after buying home and sleeping for a while, I found that the mattress is not suitable.
Let's talk about "location" again.
From an ergonomic point of view, the various products currently on the mattress market, as well as their soft and hard grades, are actually unscientific. Because they only have two camps, soft and hard, but in fact, what the body needs is soft and hard, that is, both strong support and soft response. Moreover, each brand has different standards for categorizing soft and hard grades, and the classification results are also different, making it difficult for consumers to distinguish.
People have different body parts, different weight and body pressure. For example, the shoulders and hips are heavy, which can be called overpressure points. It is necessary to better distribute the weight and relieve stress in order to promote blood circulation and effectively relieve physical fatigue. Another example is the suspension of the neck and waist, which can be called weak supporting points, which require more fitting support so that the back muscles will not be strained, in a tight state, and must not be relaxed.
Therefore, a mattress must at least provide different support for the four key points of the neck, shoulders, waist, and hips. It is both soft and hard to achieve the best relief and support, and to better protect the spine. However, ordinary mattresses on the market only have a single hardness and softness, which obviously cannot achieve this effect.
