let's talk about pain & sleep

pain & sleep

A good night’s sleep is essential to a healthy lifestyle, but people who experience chronic pain know how hard a good night’s sleep is to achieve.

the cycle of chronic pain & insomnia

  • Pain can be a debilitating nighttime disturbance leading to poor quality sleep & lack of sleep can result in additional inflammation in the body, a substantive impact on mental health, and harm to your immune system.

  • sleep is essential to function

    The body needs sleep to function, just like it needs food, water & oxygen. Your body uses sleep as time to heal, restore chemical balance & help with memory retention.

  • pain is the top cause of insomnia

    Chronic pain often causes people to have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, & waking earlier than desired. Consistent lack of sleep resuls in sleep deprivation.

  • lack of sleep negatively impacts mental health

    Sleep deprivation disrupts the central nervous system, making it harder to concentrate or retain information. It also negatively affects mental & emotional health.

  • lack of sleep negatively impacts physical health

    Sleep deprivation also weakens the immune, digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory & endocrine systems in the body. This increases the risk of chronic health conditions. 

help ease pain with memory foam

pain relief

Pressure relief from memory foam can help alleviate substantial aches and pains. We suggest one of our deeper products like the 4-inch Active Cooling mattress topper as it allows for greater contouring to your body and better displacement of your weight regardless of your sleeping position.

what to consider when choosing a mattress topper for pain relief

  • your sleeping position

    The way your body interacts with a mattress topper greatly depends on your sleep style. Side sleepers usually find comfort in softer toppers, where back and stomach sleepers tend to sleep better on firmer toppers. A medium firm topper is usually the perfect solution.

  • the firmness of your current mattress

    Keep in mind that a mattress topper should compliment your existing mattress. You don’t want to pair an extra firm topper with an extra firm bed, otherwise you might as well be sleeping on a rock. Same goes vice versa. A medium firm topper is usually the perfect solution.

    When it comes to pain relief, memory foam is the way to go. We believe the best mattress topper for lower back and hip pain is the Select High Density mattress topper. Built with heavy-weight 3.5lb density foam, this topper can last years longer than cheaper, lighter-weight alternatives. 

    We do, of course! Our best-selling mattress topper, the Select High Density, is highly recommended for those who suffer from back pain.

    We recommend our Select High Density and our Active Cooling mattress toppers when it comes to pain. These toppers help align the spine, allowing pressure relief while gently cradling your body. Neck pain can also be caused by not having the right kind of pillow! Our Active Cooling+ pillows are great options gif you’re looking for a new pillow.

    Our best-selling topper, the Select High Density, is highly rated game-changer. Our most popular topper adds a luxurious layer of supportive comfort to your current mattress, immediately delivering new life.

    We recommend getting a topper 3-4 inches thick. A topper that is too thin might add some cushion to your current mattress, but it won’t be thick enough to provide proper support for pressure relief.

    We suggest toppers that are at least 3 inches thick so that they are thick enough to provide proper support for pressure relief

    Side sleepers usually find comfort in medium-soft toppers that balance comfort and support. A topper that is too firm might not allow your hips and shoulders to sink enough, but a too soft topper might allow them to sink in too much. We suggest a medium, thicker topper for side sleepers, like our Active Cooling mattress topper.

    A soft to medium mattress topper should do the trick! Your mattress topper should compliment your existing mattress. You don’t want to pair an extra firm topper with an extra firm bed, otherwise you might as well be sleeping on a rock. So we suggest pairing a soft to medium topper with a hard mattress.

    We recommend our best-selling Select High Density mattress topper to help relieve pressure points. Our unique gel-infused, 3-inch, high-density memory foam formula aligns your spine, helps relieve common pressure points and prevent you from sinking into foam.
