The Ideal Mattress to Prevent Back Pain




Even though people do not sleep the proper amount of hours, they spend a lot of time in bed, reading or watching TV, among others.

Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, recommends to change the mattress every ten years, because it starts to wear out.

About the ideal mattress, Mena says it has to be firm enough and comfortable as well, at the same time, because it is going to keep the line of the spinal in a good position when you are sleeping.
