You often get bogged down with shoulder pain and are unable to carry on your daily activities. The reasons may be overuse, fracture, arthritis, ageing or infection.
You have to come out of this painful situation in order to shoulder all your responsibilities. The way out is immobilization of the shoulder, through medical treatment and proper rest. To put your shoulder to rest, so that it can be cured properly, you have to choose the appropriate mattress. According to the doctors, your mattress in this condition must not be too firm or too soft. These mattresses relieve pressure by distributing the body weight evenly, so that extra strain is not put on any one part of the body. Actually these mattresses are strong enough to support the body, so that it will not sink into the bed while you sleep.
The final choice will, however, depend on your weight. A lightweight (less than 130 pounds) individual should choose a medium-soft mattress. If the bed is too firm, pressure points will develop in their bodies, aggravating the pain. Somewhat heavyweight (130-230 pounds) people must choose medium or medium-firm mattress to get rid of shoulder pain. If the weight exceeds 230 pounds, the right choice will be medium-firm or firm mattress.
