Memory foam mattress toppers are hugely popular right now. Bed and mattress manufacturers recommend them because they extend the life of the bed. Over time, the filling in mattresses compact, making them less firm and less comfortable; lumps and dips appear. When this happens, back pain can occur. For people with pre-existing medical conditions, it can exacerbate the condition. But you can remedy this with a Littens Memory Foam Mattress Topper.

 

Which Conditions Will a Littens Memory Foam Mattress Topper Relieve Pain?

 

Sleep is vital for physical and mental health and having an uncomfortable bed will strain that. Tests have shown that a memory foam mattress topper can help relieve pain symptoms of the following conditions:

 

Arthritis: Pain in the joints from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other types make it difficult to lie down or find a position conducive (and comfortable enough) for sleep. A Littens memory foam mattress topper will allow you to find a position for correct, comfortable spine positioning

 

Fibromyalgia: All patients are different, with some fibromyalgia patients getting on better with toppers than others, but you may find pressure point relief. Indeed, many toppers are sold on this feature

 

How Do Littens Memory Foam Mattress Toppers Help?

 

Littens memory foam mattress toppers are made from a pliant and adaptive material that conform and adapt to your body when you sleep. When you move, it gives way in a way that regular mattresses do not and without feeling springs and lumps in your mattress. It will spring back into place as you move and when you get out of bed, so you have a smooth surface every time.

 

This feature is vital for pain relief for the conditions mentioned above and many more due to the lack of pressure on joints, muscles and other problem areas. In turn, this improves alignment, shape and posture, providing extra comfort regardless of your preferred position. You should always choose memory foam rather than latex because of how it adapts to your body. Your body weight is distributed evenly as the material effectively “remembers” your body shape, hence the name. But which Littens memory foam mattress topper to choose?

 

Back Pain Considerations When Choosing a Memory Foam Mattress Topper

 

You should always choose memory foam rather than latex because of how it adapts to your body. Your body weight is distributed evenly as the material effectively “remembers” your body shape, hence the name.

 

Consider thickness: The thicker the Littens memory foam mattress topper, the more support you will receive. We recommend a 3”/10cm thickness at the minimum for people with back pain. Other people can quite happily use 1” or 2”.

 

Density/firmness: You may find choices of density with some toppers. Be mindful of comfort and don’t automatically choose one or the other. If a soft mattress exacerbates your pain, choose something denser. However, a firm mattress will be uncomfortable with a firm topper.

 

Mattress size: it should go without saying, but ensure you get the right size topper for the bed you have. Use a double sized topper for a double bed and a king size for a king size. Too large and the topper will fall over the top, making the bed uncomfortable. Too small and you won’t get the full benefit.
