A syndicated article from SpryLiving.com reports staggering figures on people with back pain in the United States:

 

“Chronic pain affects more than 100 million Americans, and we spend about $600 billion a year in treatment and lost productivity costs, according to a report from the Institute of Medicine. Back pain is high on the list of what ails us—in fact, the American Chiropractic Association estimates that 31 million Americans suffer from back pain at any given time.”

The article goes on to enumerate ways by which these people can reduce their discomfort: improving posture, strengthening the spine through exercise, maintaining a diet rich in B-vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids, and supporting the spine and body during sleep.

Following any of these tips will be good for your health, even if you do not actually suffer chronic back pain. It could even help you avoid experiencing the condition altogether. This is why, if, for reasons related to your job or schedule, you cannot devote yourself to doing the first three, you should at least try to accomplish the fourth point. It would be relatively easy to do so—nowadays, there are many sleep-support products on the market, ranging from beds to pillows, that are sold at mattress sales in Sacramento.

Studies show that newer designs of memory foam, latex-core organic, and advanced air mattresses help people sleep better. An air mattress, in particular, is beneficial as its firmness can be adjusted to match body weight and support the back. In turn, memory foam makes a sleeper more comfortable as it follows the contour of his or her body, relieving the back of pressure.

After determining the option best for you, check whether a mattress sale in Sacramento is being held at specialty shops like The Healthy Bed Store, and buy what you need. Looking for the perfect mattress might be tiresome, but, at the end of the search, you can fall back on your purchase and bid yourself a good night—not to mention good health.
