Did you know that 55% of people suffering from lower back pain reported sleep disturbances, according to a 2015 study?
Sciatic is the burning pain from the sciatic nerve which runs down from the lower back, hips, buttocks to the feet on each leg. This can be caused because of irritation or compression of this nerve.
The answer is no – not directly. Mattresses aren’t the root cause of Sciatica. However, a poor mattress that doesn’t cushion or support your lower back can intensify the symptoms of Sciatica.
A mattress must be able to alleviate pain and soreness to allow recovery, as well as providing some good shuteye. So, it plays an important role in your health and can contribute in helping Sciatica go away in 4-6 weeks, which is the optimum recovery period it should take.
It is known that Sciatica develops over a period, and not because of a poor mattress, an injury, a fall, or a genetic predisposition.
It is because of those who have an occupation that requires a certain type of constrained/awkward positioning of their body, such as bus drivers, truck drivers, machine operators. Can you imagine that strain they may be putting on their lower back muscles?
As this is a condition that developed over period, it is usually people who are 40 years old who report a sciatic condition and is rare if occurred before the age of 20.
A vital part of recovering from Sciatica is to pick your mattress correctly and to finally get some good rest and support for those muscles and nerves.
