Memory Foam Mattress And Pain Relief-vstart

Health Do you have a problem with chronic joint pain or lower back pain or pain in the neck etc? If you do then you most likely experience a lot of discomfort when lying or sitting in what should be the most luxurious furniture that you have in your home. More and more people that suffer from chronic pain caused by arthritis, Pagets disease or other conditions are finding that their symptoms can be relieved to some extent by using furniture made from memory foam. It’s now an established fact that memory foam mattresses can help many people to get a good night sleep by making their bed so much more comfortable and this can help to minimise the additional pain you might experience when you lie down. So how does memory foam work and how can it help relieve pain? Memory foam is a visco-elastic material, which means that it gets softer as it gets warmer. When it gets soft it allows objects to sink into it when the object applies pressure to the foam. Memory foam is also an insulator so it is possible to heat up the material in localised areas without the heat spreading to other parts of the foam. When a warm human body lays on a sheet of memory foam the foam becomes heated by the warmth of the body, just in the areas where the body makes contact with the foam. This causes the material to become softer under the body and allows it to sink into the foam. As you sink further into the memory foam, more and more of your body comes into contact with the foam until the warm, soft foam is giving you good support all over your body. When every part of your body is supported by the warmer soft foam the pressure on every part of your body in contact is equalised. Because there are no longer any single points of pressure the whole of your body will feel comfortable and under the least amount of stress possible. It’s this lowering of stress by distributing it across all of your body that gives you pain relief. Why do we have memory foam? In the early days of the space program NASA needed to develop ways of making astronauts more comfortable in the periods of high acceleration and deceleration experienced at take off and landing. Memory foam was one of the materials developed for NASA and it promised to help in these situations by eliminating pressure points in the astronauts seating. How the foam was going to get warmed by the astronauts body through their space suite I’m not sure. NASA didn’t actually use the memory foam in it’s space craft in the end because it "off-gasses" meaning that it gives off a small amount of toxic gas which can cause problems in a confined and air tight space like you find on a space craft. Consider the alternatives All cases are different and while memory foam products are still expensive it pays to experiment with the cheapest solutions first. If you have trouble sleeping then try out a memory foam pillow or a memory foam mattress topper. They are both likely to be a lot cheaper than a memory foam mattress. I’ve recently experienced some lower back pain problems, which were astonishingly uncomfortable. My lovely comfortable soft furnishings turned into a torture chamber because I couldn’t get comfortable on them no matter how hard I tried. A few memory foam cushions might help you out if you have similar problems. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
