Quit whining about your back pain – and DO something about it!
My husband and I have slept on a LOT of mattresses during the last couple of years.
I suffer from almost daily back pain, caused by a bad car wreck in college and years of swimming competitively.
I'm not alone.
Back pain is one of the most common health conditions in America with 80 percent of the US population experiencing it sometime in the course of their lives. Sitting improperly, injury, awkward walking gaits and repeatedly lifting heavy weights can all lead to back pain.
Two common mattress problems can also make back pain worse:
- uneven support of your body, which causes too much pressure on the lower back; and
- bad sleeping posture, which causes the spine to assume an unnatural position and cause your body to fight all night to keep things aligned.
