Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress
When you lay down, your body has several pressure points that can lead to pain if they are not properly supported. For example, side sleepers have pressure points on their shoulder and hips, and those with arthritis or joint pain may have trouble sleeping in general. In these instances, a Memory foam mattress may alleviate pain when lying down.
Traditional spring mattresses typically have a top foam layer to mask the springs. This layer wears down over time, exposing the springs and adding discomfort. Because Memory foam is a solid foam piece, there is no potential for an uncomfortable mattress spring experience. If your mattress is a hybrid with both springs and foam, the high durability of Memory foam will ensure that the springs do not make an uncomfortable appearance for years to come.
Proper Spinal Alignment
A Memory foam mattress aligns with your body. This is achieved through its viscoelastic properties. Your body heat softens Memory foam, making it more viscous and allowing you to comfortably sink down as you apply weight to the foam. In other words, as you lay down the foam contours to you, creating a personal body mold that provides proper spinal alignment for a more comfortable night’s sleep.
Memory foam’s viscoelasticity and density allow you to sink into the foam as you lay down, leading to the absorption of movement. As a result, if you sleep with a partner, you are less likely to feel them move and vice-versa. This will help prevent you or your partner from waking up when the other is tossing and turning throughout the night.
Its dense elastic structure makes Memory foam hypoallergenic by reducing the number of allergens, such as mold and dust, that are capable of building within the foam. As such, Memory foam is an excellent choice for people with allergies that are prevented from getting a good night’s sleep.
