Arthritis is a terrible, debilitating condition that causes extreme joint pain. Memory foam mattress can help relieve some of that pain. Memory foam is a heat reactive material that shapes itself to your exact body contour, providing the most comfortable yet supportive night’s sleep you can get.
Memory foam is ideal for those with arthritis as it reduces the pressure on your sleeping body. With traditional foam and spring mattresses there is an inevitable build up of pressure on various points of the body as the night goes on. Because memory foam moulds to any and every position you sleep in, there is far less pressure, meaning there is less pain.
Also, because the memory foam is perfectly shaped to your body, there is less strain on your muscles. On the old fashioned mattresses, the body has to do more work, with muscles straining while you sleep. On memory foam, your body is able to loosen up and relax your muscles for the entire night, meaning that in the morning you feel much better.
Finally, a lack of sleep has been proven to increase the sensation of pain, meaning that if you have a bad night’s sleep, your pain will be amplified. Because memory foam is so incredibly comfortable yet powerfully supportive, you will sleep better and your pain will not be so bad.
