As winter sets in and the nights become longer and colder, there’s nothing more inviting than snuggling beneath a warm, cosy duvet and nodding off into the land of dreams.
But while most of us assume that our bodies are recuperating from the day’s activities as we sleep, our chiropractor in Stoke on Trent warns that our beloved beds could be having a detrimental effect on our health and that it’s important that we recognise the tell-tale signs.
In a recent survey by the British Chiropractic Association, a worrying 43% of people questioned said that their back pain or neck pain was triggered by sleeping on their mattresses.* But how do we know if our niggles and pains are possibly a result of sleeping on the wrong mattress?
Our experienced Stoke on Trent chiropractor reveals five warning signs that show it could be time to look for a new mattress:
1: You feel stiff, achy or are in pain when you wake up in the morning.
2: You can hear your mattress ‘creaking’ when you move or turn over in bed.
3: your mattress appears out of shape or ‘saggy’.
4: You have a better night’s sleep when you sleep elsewhere
5: You can feel individual springs in your mattress.
Remember that a good quality mattress is critical to a healthy night’s sleep and sometimes our health in general.
