Studies show traditional U.S. mattresses and box springs can twist the spine by resisting the weight of the shoulders and hips resulting in 2 negative consequences. Poor support contorts the back and body resulting in bone and muscle stress, discomfort and poor sleep. This creates pressure points impairing circulation, which increases heart rate and blood pressure, discomfort and poor sleep. The right sleep system can provide support that responds to body movement and shifts in weight and distributing pressure to match the individual’s body distribution while maintaining its form to respond to an individual’s sleeping position insuring the best night’s rest.
Recent Studies indicate the right mattress makes a difference in back pain relief and the quality of sleep for back pain sufferers.
At Wheelock Pharmacy’s Sleep & Wellness Center, we offer an exclusive selection of sleep systems designed to equalize counter pressure on the patient’s joints and insures proper spine alignment that reduces pain and helps encourage a restful, recuperative deep sleep.
