Can 'hard beds' really save your waist？
Some people appear backache problems when seeing a doctor, the advice that often gets is: sleep hard plank bed!
So some people go home to remove the mattress, on the bed board on a thin layer of sheets to sleep, that is to follow the doctor's advice!
We've often heard that it's healthier to sleep on a hard bed, but can this save your waistline? Wrong!
A hard bed is not a bed board!
Normal spinal physiological structure of the human body from the side looks like an s-shaped physiological curve, if sleep too hard plank bed, can not cooperate with the normal curve of the human spine, the waist can not be supported, a long time is also easy to cause strain, aggravating back pain and other symptoms.
Good hard bed, to the body protuberant bone, joint still has a certain effect. Sleep on an excellent hard bed, only a few points of the head, back, buttock, the heel will bear pressure, the spinal column can be in stiff stand tight state, need lumbar back muscle to support, when Morpheus less than should some loosen the effect.
So stop letting what you think of as "hard beds" murder your health!

Someone said again, westerners sleep on soft mattresses, that is, the softer the better?
No! No! No!
Too soft bed, the person lies above can make spinal column shows a curve condition, the short-term meeting feels lumbar acerbity backache. Long-term such, still can cause the body to be in the middle section sunken, the muscle of upper part of the body is flabby, lower muscle is pulled tight, cause lumbar muscle and bone strain easily, cause a vertebra to bend or twist even!

2. Paste and degree: lying flat with the hand test
The appropriate mattress can make vertebra maintains a natural extension to spend, fit completely with shoulder, waist, buttock, do not leave space.
