Oh my aching back!!! According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, back pain is the fifth most common reason for doctor visits. Nine out of ten adults will experience some degree of back pain during their lifetime. There is now a way to get some relief for your back pain and send less to Uncle Sam.
Tempur-pedic mattresses are constructed of specially designed foam commonly known as memory foam. This idea came about in the 1960’s when scientists were searching for a way to relieve G-force pressure for the astronauts during difficult moments in flight. It is designed to relieve pressure and provide support as it conforms to your particular shape. There are no springs or wires to disrupt your sleep or poke your body. Research and testing now show that people sleeping on a Tempur-Pedic mattress have reduced pain and longer and more restful sleep.
For the ultimate in comfort and function, consider an ergonomic positioning bed. These beds offer the same memory foam comfort but allow you to control the position of the bed via a wireless remote. This makes it possible to truly spend all day in bed! Imagine working on your computer, handling important phone calls or just reading a book all day, all in the comfort of your bed. You can fully recline or elevate different sections of the bed depending on your needs. No more aching backs, tired legs or neck strain.
These mattresses are available for purchase in mattress, medical supply and department stores. While the prices are regulated nationwide, you will pay delivery fees normal for your area.
Your pillow is just as important as your mattress. Depending on how you prefer to sleep, there are positioning pillows designed for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. There is even a pillow designed to reduce snoring which makes a wonderful “gift” for your snoring partner. These pillows combine comfort with the same body molding technology as the tempur-pedic mattresses.
Now that you know how to relieve back pain, how do you relieve IRS pain?
There are many manufacturers out there producing memory foam mattresses. However, Tempur-pedic’s memory foam is the only memory foam to be recognized by NASA. As a result, doctors feel comfortable in prescribing a new tempur-pedic mattress and pillows as a way to treat certain ailments. If your doctor provides you with a written prescription you may be able to deduct this as a medical expense on your tax return. It is important, however, that you check with your tax attorney and/or any applicable state laws before you show this as a deduction.
Today’s hectic and busy lifestyle can wreak havoc on our bodies. Tackling the day is much easier after a restful night’s sleep provided by the proper mattress and pillow.
