Do Wooden Bed Base Cause Back Pain?

Many people get back pain. You could be one such person. In these cases, there is always a chance that you may get it because of your bed. The first question that needs to be asked in this case is how much you have paid for your bed. It is but a lot less than what you have spent on your car. The problem is that most people think of the money that they are going to spend on their cars but they never consider buying a high-quality wooden bed base that could cost them a fair amount of money.

How to identify if the bed is causing the pain?

There are certain tell-tale signs that you are getting your back pain from your bed. The first – and the clearest – clue is that you are getting the pain immediately after you wake up sleeping on the bed. If the pain goes away in the next 20 minutes the bed is to be blamed over here. If you cannot sleep easily and keep turning & tossing trying to sleep, it is a clear sign that your wooden bed base is causing you pain.

What to do in this case?

The best way to mitigate the problem is to buy the right mattress for your sleeping needs. Even more than the bed, it is the mattress that causes these problems. You need to make sure it is the most suitable option for your back. Several studies have found that people who sleep on the medium to hard innerspring mattresses experience fewer issues with their back compared to people who sleep on extra-soft or hard mattresses. If you have the right mattress your wooden bed base would not cause you back pain problems.

How to pick the right mattress?

You already know the first step over here. Do not select a mattress that is excessively soft or similarly soft. It is always better to go for the medium-hard mattresses, as we have already alluded to above. If you have any choice in this case you should go with that. Get a mattress that supports your back properly. You also need to ensure that the mattress is made from the right components. You also need to select a wooden bed base that provides you the right support when you are sleeping.


In this context, you also need to check several other factors of the mattress such as its coils and springs. Make sure it has the right padding. The external layer of the mattress should also ideally be one that makes you always feel at home. The foundation of the mattress must also be powerful enough. It is just as important as your wooden bed base. A great alternative here is a foam mattress. You should also know that different mattresses are ideal options for people based on their sleeping patterns. There are 3 main types of sleepers - side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. You have specific products that are suitable for them. Please remember that one type cannot use the mattress that is meant for the other two varieties.
