Many mattress stores display pictures of side-sleepers with straight spines, suggesting that a spine free of lateral movement is the key to sleeping well. But we’re not flat cardboard cutouts: our spines rotate multi-dimensionally, and misalignment of the spine during sleep can lead to musculoskeletal stress, muscular stiffness, and back pain in the morning. Maintaining an alignment in which the spine is not rotated or twisted is as important to comfortable, pain-free sleep as maintaining a straight spine. Proper alignment also impacts our oxygen intake, a key factor to a healthy night’s sleep.
Most Mattresses Fail
Most conventional mattresses have flat, inflexible surfaces that don’t accommodate the curves of the body. When your body meets that surface, your hips and shoulders are forced to rotate, resulting in physical stress. This reduces the restorative properties of sleep, causing discomfort and pain and aggravating existing conditions. Misalignment can also obstruct air passageways, reducing the quality of nighttime breathing.
The European Sleep Works Solution
At European Sleep Works, we understand that true support is a critical factor in mattress performance. Our flexible mattress design provides an adaptable surface that contours to fit your body, minimizing pressure at the shoulders and hips while supporting the curves at your waist, lower back, and knees. Our adjustable slat system allows us to create an even greater depth of contour, with added support and lift where you need it. When your body is properly supported without strain, you can also breathe more deeply, increasing your oxygen intake. For full-body alignment, our Oxygen Pillow provides the support your head and neck require for deeper breathing and a more restful night’s sleep.
