What memory foam offers.
Memory foam offers multiple benefits over traditional mattresses. The major benefit is the cellular structure that memory foam consists of. While typical coils are spaced throughout a bed, memory foam cradles your body at every point so you feel supported and relaxed.
Getting the right pressure relief & support.
When choosing a memory foam mattress, it is important to consider what mattress will provide the proper pressure relief and support for your weight, sleeping positions, and chronic pains.
Certain chronic pains make sleeping a challenge. If you suffer from hip or shoulder pain purchasing a mattress with more pressure relief will help to relieve these pains. If your back bothers you from day to day, consider upgrading to a mattress that is more supportive to ensure that your back doesn’t move into an uncomfortable position.
The position you find most comfortable at night has a large impact on the amount of pressure relief and support your mattress will require. If you don’t know your most common position, take a mental note of how you fall asleep and how you wake up. The position you wake up in is most likely your dominant sleeping position.
