Furniture for Offices, Bed and Breakfasts and Other Businesses

Choosing furniture for your business is a lot different than choosing furniture for your home. You need patterns that can hide stains, designs that can stand the test of time and construction that can withstand lots of use. Hi, my name is Mandy, and I love choosing furniture for businesses. When I was a kid, my parents actually owned a couple of hotels, and I would look through the catalogs with my mum to choose duvets and beds for the hotels. It was super fun, and I wanted to do something like that now, so I decided to create a blog on choosing furniture for your business.

Is Your Mattress Aggravating A Pain In The Butt?

Constance Hayes

There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning in pain. As someone who experiences a deep burn in the buttock muscles that travels down into your thighs as the day wears on, you know changes have to be made. The sciatic nerve pain you are experiencing is being compounded by your mattress, so what can you do to eradicate this pain in your rear end?

What Is Sciatic Nerve Pain?

The sciatic nerve is in your body, and its nerve roots shoot out across your lower back near the bottom of your spinal column. The nerve splits in two in your lower back and then runs down each side of the body through your bottom and down to your foot via the backs of your legs.

There are a number of different medical conditions that can cause sciatic nerve pain, so it is important in the first instance for you to see your doctor and determine what is causing the problem. When the nerve gets pinched or compressed because of inflammation in the body, pain waves can run the entire length of the nerve. Therefore, even though the source of the pain is in the lower leg, you can still experience pain travelling upwards to your lower back.

Why Is Your Mattress Making Things Worse?

A mattress that does not provide solid body support is going to cause the nerve pain to worsen while you are sleeping at night. This is because mattresses that are too soft allow the body to sink into them. This, in turn, increases the way the back is curving and that puts additional pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Mattresses lose their springiness over the years, which is why it is recommended you replace them every ten years. By buying a firmer mattress, you are going to wake up with less pain each day.

What Type Of Mattress Do You Need?

Because you want a mattress that is going to deliver the same level of support every night for years to come, don't buy a spring mattress as they do sag as time marches on. Talk to a mattress specialist about their recommendation of what works best for sciatica patients. Memory foam mattresses, for example, are an obvious choice because this type of mattress molds around the body and supports it well away from the base of the bed.

After discussing your sciatic nerve pain with your doctor, look into replacing the mattress on your bed. Your days will be so much more enjoyable when you are no longer having to put up with constant pain in your behind.
