The importance of sleeping ergonomically
Have you ever had back problems? Then you surely know how important a painless back is. The spine is made up of spinal vertebrae and intervertebral discs. The vertebrae guarantee the stability of the back. The intervertebral discs are the shock absorbers of the back, and also allow us to move easily.
During the day, our intervertebral discs are constantly subjected to gravity. These discs consist of a shell with a gel-like substance inside. You could compare the intervertebral discs with a sponge filled with water. During the day, it is squeezed out by the pressure, and at night it has to absorb moisture again. That is why we are up to 1.5 cm taller in the morning than in the evening.
Do you want good support? You need a good bed and good advice!
Our protruding shoulders, which do not weigh much because the lungs are right there, should be able to collapse easily. The waist should be well supported, and the pelvis, which does weigh a lot because of the large amount of bone tissue, should go slightly inwards, but not too much. Otherwise you risk low back pain.
