Back Pain Relief Equals Better Quality of Life
Being part of the 21st century, the digital era, we can certainly say we’ve come to a quality of life on a level much higher than that of previous centuries, which means we should be healthier with our lifespan expanded. However, this isn’t always the case and we only have our habits to blame for having our well-being shaken up. Now that we’re all more or less addicted to the use of electronics, often physical activity is traded for time spent on chairs or sofas, in the same position as a couch potato, so it’s no surprise for certain health-related issues to arise.
When was the last time you woke up feeling fully energised? If you can honestly say it was just this morning or yesterday, you’re one of the lucky ones; the rest of us are just trying to make up for it by drowning in cups of coffee. Along with occasional headaches, the annoying pain that accompanies most mornings is the back pain. Spending eight hours a day at work, then back home by the TV or using electronics along with driving, practically everything that leads to a sedentary lifestyle, makes for the perfect conditions for a back pain.
Depending on the issue it may or may not be easy to get rid of the pain yet there are certain things we can do that can relieve it, without relying on painkillers to do the job. Have you considered replacing your pillow with a wedge for bed? Being created for the purpose of pain management, it’s designed for comfort which is why it’s usually made from polyurethane foam for better support and strain-relief. It’s the perfect addition to your bed, no matter whether you’re sleeping, reading or sitting as it properly supports your back, neck and head.
The wedge for bed isn’t just ideal for managing your back pain through relaxing muscles in the area of the lumbar back region but also relieving symptoms of varicose veins, sleep apnea, breathing problems, snoring, heartburn and GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), including help with people who are recovering from a surgery or an accident. If you’re having experiencing lower back pain, combine it with a leg wedge and you’re sure to notice a difference in your quality of sleep.
Along with this helpful bed accessory, make sure you check the condition of your mattress. In case it’s been long since the last time you did a mattress purchase, it’s time for the quest for the perfect mattress that provides proper support – a bad mattress is often the usual suspect in the bad back situation. Last but not least, you better make way for exercise in your lifestyle; no matter whether you’re at work in the office or lounging at home, there’s the right exercise for every moment, you just have to find it and make it your habit.
