Best Mattress & Best Bed for Back Pain | DUXIANA

 



TRANSCENDING FIRM OR SOFT

The Myth of the Hard bed

Do you know why you have been told that sleeping on a firm bed is good for you? Historically mattresses were made of materials that would compress. This caused mattresses to sag in the middle forcing people to sleep in a hammock position. Not surprisingly people complained about back and neck pain and as a remedy were told to put a board under the mattress for support. Thus, the myth of the hard bed was born.

When selecting the best mattress for back pain, most people therefore equate firmness with support, and softness with comfort. However, we now know that a bed that is too firm creates an inflexible mattress, forcing the body to conform to it, rather than the other way around. This can not only create pressure points that inhibit circulation but also make it virtually impossible to aline the spine.

FIRM 
Studies show that if a mattress is too 
firm it forces your body to conform 
to it. DUX is just the opposite – 
it conforms to you.

SOFT 
When a mattress is too soft, 
your body sinks into a hammock position, 
causing your spine to curve unnaturally.

DUX is designed to contour to and 
support the entire length of your body
so your spine can rest in a natural,
relaxed position for correct sleep posture.

Good quality sleep forms the backbone of good spinal health. That’s good news — after all, acquiring the best mattress for back pain is well within your control. When you consider the constant stress your spine endures every day you owe it to yourself to give it some relief at night.

We feel The DUX Bed is the best bed for back pain, not only because it aligns your spine through dynamic contouring support, but also because it can be customized to the exact requirements of your body. With this, your back muscles can not only get the relief they need, but also a consistent opportunity to heal.

WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK

Your muscles work to protect your spine all day - they deserve a break at night.

According to medical research, over 80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. The chairs we sit in, the shoes we wear, the sports we play, the stress in our lives — all contribute to back pain. And back muscles don’t necessarily go to sleep when you do — they can stay tense if your mattress doesn’t provide proper, continuous support.

WHY IS SLEEPING ON YOUR SIDE THE BEST POSITION? 

 

"Side sleeping is the best position and here's why. It's the only position that allows the spine to straighten out. There's also very little pressure on the spine when you lay on your side. If you sleep in a fetal position, it takes even more pressure off your lower back."

DEEP SLEEP - THE ULTIMATE GOAL

Researchers at The Karolinska Institute, the prestigious medical university that awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, performed a study investigating the effect different types of mattresses had on the body and sleep quality. 

Their results showed that those who slept on a DUX bed not only fall asleep faster, but remained in deep sleep longer – a good thing since deep sleep has been proven to be the only sleep stage where muscles can heal and repair themselves.

In an independent sleep study conducted by the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, the sleep patterns of individuals using a variety of innerspring mattresses were measured using an EEG to record the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex of the brain. The study demonstrated that DUX users not only reached the Deep Sleep stage of sleep faster, but remained there longer. This is especially beneficial since it is during Deep Sleep that the body and immune system recovers and repairs itself.
