You have probably spent over 25% of your life sleeping. With that much of your life spent in bed, it makes sense that proper sleep and a good mattress can go a long way toward mitigating back pain and improving your health. Knowledge about better sleep techniques, proper mattress guidelines, or the role of insomnia in regards to chronic pain can help make your nights (and your days) far more enjoyable.

Mattresses are not the only factor for patients with pain and sleep problems. Other factors affecting sleep comfort include anxiety, lack of exercise, and other sleep related medical conditions.

Antidepressants may be able to help with sleep disruption in addition to treating major depression. Desyrel, Elavil, and Sinequan are examples of medications that can help with sleep problems...

The majority of patients suffering from chronic pain, such as chronic back pain, also suffer from sleep disorders. Disrupted sleep often exacerbates chronic pain problems, which in turn makes sleeping more difficult.

Value should not be one's only consideration when shopping for a mattress, especially if you have back pain. Learn the 4 things to consider when purchasing your next mattress.
