Bedding and back pain

WHY GOOD BEDDING ?

Back pain, if it occurs during your sleep or when you get up, can often be linked to bad bedding. The pain is often felt during REM sleep, which is superficial and shallow, especially if you suffer from inflammatory pain. The back is one of the most important and sensitive parts of our body, because all our limbs are connected to it. During the night, it is therefore important that he rests correctly and painlessly.

HOW TO CHOOSE A GOOD MATTRESS ?

A good bedding is chosen according to everyone’s preferences. You may prefer a more or less firm mattress. You can also choose your bedding according to your morphology. A person of small build will prefer a less firm mattress than a person of large build. In order to be sure to choose the right bedding according to your tastes, it is strongly recommended to test the mattress before buying it.

THE PROPERTIES OF A GOOD MATTRESS

There are 5 points to check when choosing a mattress :

1. ITS FIRMNESS

A mattress should not be too soft or too hard. A mattress that is too rigid will tend to awaken inflammatory pain. The use of a futon is ideal for people who suffer from back pain regularly.

2. ITS COMFORT

The mattress must be soft enough to ensure your comfort while maintaining a certain firmness to keep a feeling of hold at pressure points (such as shoulders and pelvis). The density of a mattress (weight per m3) is not negligible. Indeed, the more important it is, the more important your support and the longevity of the mattress will be.

3. GOOD TEMPERATURE REGULATION

Good regulation of body temperature during the night is important. Natural materials (wool, cotton) are therefore to be favored since they ensure heat exchange.

4. THE RIGHT DIMENSIONS

On average, the French have 140cm wide beds for space saving reasons. However, a larger bed offers good sleeping independence, which means that you do not interfere with your partner’s sleep.

5. TECHNOLOGIES

–        Le latex : although latex is originally made of plant material, it can also be synthetic. Latex mattresses contain many perforations and offer very good ventilation qualities. They are perfect for individuals with allergies or who sweat a lot while sleeping.

–        Springs : 3 types of spring mattresses exist: pocketed, biconical, multispire. The most frequent are pocket springs. Compressed and wrapped in fabric, they support the body point by point while maintaining correct alignment of the spine.

–        Shape memory foam : composed of viscoelastic or thermo-reactive foam, shape memory mattresses are sensitive to body heat. Thus, when our body rests on it, the mattress takes on its shape. It stiffens again when it cools.

MEDICAL REVIEWS

Because we concentrate on our back when we need it explicitly, we forget the countless moments when we unconsciously neglect our posture. Percko guarantees an ideal posture throughout your day.

François Stevignon / Kinésithérapeute and ostéopath

Percko improves posture by automatically realigning head, thorax, and pelvis. It gives back to the spine its natural curves, and increases by at least 35% the stability and efficiency of the wearer’s posture.

Pol LE BORGNE / Doctor in Biomechanics

The Percko shirt is really interesting for patients suffering from back pain for mechanical reasons. It does not act like a support belt (and therefore does not lead to muscle atrophy), but more like a stimulation that allows patients to reinforce their backs and re-educate themselves progressively. This product is an excellent complement to traditional, physiotherapeutic, or osteopathic care!
