Getting a good night’s sleep is essential in maintaining your health, and your choice of mattress is the first building block to peaceful slumber. However, with the array of mattresses available, choosing the best one for your specific needs can be overwhelming. If you’re looking for a new mattress, how do you know which mattress is best for you?
According to Dr. Anton Cancio, a leading US-trained chiropractor in Philippines, a good mattress is one that provides you with sufficient support while you are asleep. “If the mattress is too firm, it will push on those main pressure points and take your back out of alignment. On the other hand, if it’s too soft, your spine won’t be properly supported. Both of these scenarios can lead to a bad back,” he adds.
Cancio, a cum laude graduate of California’s Palmer College of Chiropractic West and a board member of the Association of Professional Chiropractors in the Philippines, explains, “A mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position while your spine and head are in proper alignment. If this is not achieved, you will wake up feeling stiff and tired.”
While there are different types of mattresses readily available in the market, it can be very confusing for a consumer to choose the right one for his or her needs.
Ryan Uy, Mandaue Foam’s managing director explains, “To help our customers choose a proper mattress, we encourage them to try out our beds with our X-Sensor device. This five-minute test measures the customer’s pressure points and helps identify a suitable bed based on their attributes.”
The bed plays a pivotal role on the quality of sleep that one gets and finding the right bed and pillow really make a difference.
“Finding the right pillow is as essential to your health as finding the right mattress. Without the right pillow, you can still wake up with a bad neck, despite your mattress. Pillows are key in supporting the spine to maintain spine position,” continues Uy.
Ultimately, the experts say that the best bed and pillow for you is the one that gives you total support for your body.
“Remember, in order to feel your best, you need to get your rest—so be kind to your body and invest in a good quality mattress suited to your particular needs,” Dr. Cancio concluded.
