Why box spring beds can help against back pain

Ouch! One wrong movement after waking up and the back pain strikes again. Some people can hardly get it out of their springs in the morning because of their tense muscles. But why is it that so many people cannot find relaxation in their sleep? And how can I optimally adapt my bed to my body in order to lastingly avoid such pain?

Proper lying is not a matter of course

A person spends a third of his life lying down. Correct lying down is extremely important for our back. The body uses this time for regeneration – the spinal muscles are relieved and the intervertebral disc can relax. However, so that the body can relax optimally when lying down, certain requirements must be met. If the relaxation phases are disturbed, the regeneration remains incomplete and the intervertebral disc tissue is only insufficiently supplied with nutrients. Painful tension and persistent back pain are often the result. If you want to prevent these complaints, you should treat yourself to a healthy sleeping pad. Box spring beds, for example, offer extremely high and healthy sleeping comfort.

What is so special about a box spring bed?

Although box spring beds have been around since the end of the 19th century and they are extremely popular in America, they are still little known in Germany. It is quite possible that you have already been lying in a box spring bed on a cruise or in an exclusive hotel – this type of bed is very popular in these areas. But box spring beds can do more! Their extremely high sleeping comfort makes them an ideal choice for the bedroom at home.

The special thing about a box spring bed is its construction. It consists of several components that can be individually coordinated with one another. A spring box forms the basis of the bed. It replaces the slatted frame of the conventional bed. The spring box contains a continuous spring core that is up to 20 cm high and is held in place by a sturdy wooden construction.

The actual mattress lies on this spring core housing. Of course, the design and firmness of the mattress can be selected individually. With a barrel pocket spring mattress, the number of springs is decisive. The more springs that are used for a mattress, the greater the point elasticity: the mattress yields precisely where it is subjected to stress. In this way, it can optimally adapt to the lying body and ensures lasting, deep relaxation of the muscles.

With a normal bed this would be the end of it, but the box spring bed has another layer to offer: the topper. This additional mattress pad reinforces the positive effect of the box spring construction. By choosing the right topper, the desired lying properties of a box spring bed can be modified according to personal preference. The properties of the topper depend entirely on the material: There are point-elastic toppers or toppers with a very high surface elasticity. The breathability and moisture transport of the mattress system can also be influenced by the right topper.

What are the benefits for my back?

Spine and muscles find optimal relaxation on a box spring bed thanks to the interplay of spring box, mattress and topper. Because the system is selectively flexible, the spine automatically assumes a straight position when lying down. Tensions and cramps cannot arise in the first place. Breathable materials and good moisture transport ensure an all-round healthy sleeping environment. You will see: the proverbial “sleep like on clouds” is not an empty phrase in a box spring bed. If you want to know what real sleeping comfort is, you should simply spend a rehearsal night in a box spring bed.

The box spring system also offers other advantages: Many people find the higher entry level very comfortable. Not only older people or people with restricted mobility enjoy getting out of bed much more effortlessly in the morning thanks to the comfortable bed height. Entry is also noticeably easier thanks to the comfortable height of the lying surface.

Box spring beds not very variable?

Wherever it comes from: the rumor that the inflexible construction of a box spring bed cannot be individually adapted persists. The opposite is the case, especially with high-quality models: There is hardly a sleeping system that is as flexible, variable and individually adaptable as a box spring bed.

Starting with the degree of hardness of the spring frame, through the material and design of the mattress, to the special properties of the different types of toppers, the box spring system can be adapted very specifically and very precisely to the individual needs of the individual sleeper. And that’s not all: if two people sleep in one bed with different demands on their sleeping pad, a divided spring box ensures that both sleepers get an optimal sleeping pad. More flexibility is not possible!
