We all have varied expectations and needs from a mattress. Some of us like to feel we’re sleeping on a marshmallow while others like a mattress as firm as possible to be able to sleep. But some people need what is called an orthopaedic or semi-orthopaedic mattress. Sometimes, when you have specific aches and pains, your doctor may recommend you replace your old mattress with a new one and they may suggest that you replace it with an orthopaedic type. Here we explain what a CareCo orthopaedic mattress is and who will benefit from this type the most.
Explaining the Function of a CareCo Orthopaedic Mattress
CareCo orthopaedic mattresses are designed to relieve people with pain in the back and joints. They help people with joint pain and back problems and other related conditions, to sleep more comfortably and therefore, to improve both quality and quantity of sleep. They offer this support in several ways:
• They are firmer than normal mattresses, even firmer than the “standard” firm filling
• They provide extra support in the region of the spine and other pain weight-bearing points in the body
• Extra support for the neck and hips also, creating a smooth comfort throughout the body when lying down.
How often should you change your mattress? Repeated studies have shown a mattress is good for around 8 years. If it is coming up to that long since you last bought a new mattress, then perhaps it is time to invest in a new CareCo orthopaedic mattress, especially if you’re struggling with back or joint comfort at night.
Who Should Get an Orthopaedic Mattress?
Naturally, the people who benefit most from this type of mattress are those with age-related joint problems such as arthritis and rheumatism. If you have these conditions and can’t sleep very well, you’re likely to experience the most benefit. If you also suffer from back pain, other joint pain, neck and some spinal problems, you may find these firm and supportive mattresses are of tremendous use.
Both types mould to your body’s unique contours. If you simply struggle to get comfortable enough at night (and it’s affecting your sleep cycle) then perhaps you too could benefit from this type of mattress – you don’t need a medical reason. Sometimes, personal comfort and needing support are enough of an excuse.
Looking for a CareCo Orthopaedic Mattress or Even a Bed?
You have come to the right place. We offer several options for fully orthopaedic and semi-orthopaedic mattresses. Both types are deluxe, offering you the quality of finish you have become used to from CareCo’s products; our mattresses are no different. While here, perhaps consider your pillows. People who need a CareCo orthopaedic mattress for neck support will not get the full benefit of the mattress without the right support such as a memory foam pillow.
The best thing to do is visit a CareCo store to test for yourself whether an orthopaedic mattress is suitable for you or your health conditions, or whether your existing mattress is just not firm enough. While you’re here, perhaps consider whether it is not just your mattress that needs upgrading, but also your bed. We provide a range of electric beds with the ability to change the height of the legs or head or change sleeping position can also aid sleep for sufferers of other medical conditions.
