Is My Mattress Causing My Sore Back?
There are many things that can cause a sore back or achy muscles in your back and neck. A mattress can sometimes be the culprit, but sometimes it can be other issues and it gets attributed mistakenly to your mattress. How can you tell the difference?
When you get a new mattress, you are very sensitive to the changes in your sleep and body with regards to the mattress. In fact, it is not unusual to have every little change in your body attributed to the new mattress. Over my career, I have received many calls and emails in the first 30-90 days of ownership from customers who insist every little change in their body is the fault of the mattress. And even a few have returned a perfectly good mattress when the issue was something completely unrelated to the mattress.
There are many factors and instances that can cause sore muscles, achy backs and stiff necks:
- Lack of Exercise
- Improper Pillows
- Improper support beneath the mattress
