On top of almost everyone’s list is to get a good night’s sleep. To clock in those full eight hours is hard enough, but can be even more difficult for someone who suffers from joint pain and arthritis.
First of all, the biggest red flag indicating you need a new mattress is if you find yourself consistently waking up in more pain than when you went to sleep. Because arthritis causes chronic pain, hinders movement, and can lead to joint inflammation, a comfortable and sound sleep becomes a rare occurrence.
Experiencing sleepless nights because of excruciating aches and pains can generate frustration and impact your daily life. Sleep is essential to good health, and without its restorative and healing properties, improving joint conditions becomes a challenge.
Whether you have been dealing with arthritis or joint pain for years, or its become a more recent manifestation, you might feel that changes need to be made in order to to improve your condition.
