If you're waking up stiff in the mornings with neck, back, or shoulder pain, you're a possible victim of a sub-standard bed. Many Americans suffer from insomnia, back pain, and neck pain. One of the easiest ways to remedy your problem is with a memory foam mattress topper.
Chiropractors and doctors tout the pressure-relieving benefits of memory foam mattress toppers. Beds topped with these simple covers eliminate pressure points you experience during sleep, reducing the amount of undue stress on joints in your body.
By investing in a memory foam mattress cover, you'll convert your hard, uncomfortable bed to a luxurious pillowtop that cradles you as you sleep — without spending thousands on a new mattress. High-quality mattress toppers cost hundreds, or thousands, less than buying a new bed outright and can yield the same level of comfort.
Memory foam mattress toppers infused with gel and other materials help keep you cooler at night by pulling heat away from your body. Science proves that a cooler sleeping environment leads to better sleep.
Getting your best night's sleep depends greatly on the type of memory foam you choose. Traditional memory foam will shape to your body, helping to eliminate pressure points and boost circulation throughout the night. Gel memory foam reduces pressure and is an excellent option for people with sore muscles and chronic pain. Air-cooled memory foam wicks away your body heat, helping regulate your body's temperature during the night.
Your memory foam mattress topper's density is important. Your body will adjust more quickly to a softer low-density foam over a firm high-density foam. Medium-density foams allow you to sleep soundly while your partner moves without being over-the-top-firm. Manufacturers figure memory foam density in pounds-per-inch measurements — the higher the number, the denser the memory foam mattress topper.
Most memory foam mattress toppers are 2 to 3 inches thick, while some are up to 5 inches thick. When you choose a thicker topper with a higher density, you'll enjoy a more luxurious mattress and better rest.
