I have to tell you, turning thirty hit me hard. I gained 10 lbs, acquired two new cavities and can't get out of bed without my knees cracking, back aching and neck sore. There has to be a better way to live, beginning with the pain relief. What happen to the days of going to bed at 2:00 a.m. anywhere that looked comfortable and waking up revived? Nope, I need a firm mattress with supportive bed accessories. Upon research I found many sorts of pillows and products designed to better support the body while at rest and provide relief for all those annoying morning pains.
For ultimate leisure and support I discovered the Berkie System. This product was developed by an orthopedic surgeon. The goal was to provide flexibility and relaxation in elevation, posture, neck, back and lumbar support. I really like the system because it includes several pieces which can be used together or individually. It can be flipped, adjusted or turned to any position. There's a head rest, little slant, large slant, leg rest and leg wedge. Sounds like a lot but it's a great way to get all the support you need. The system is made from a high grade polyurethane and temperature sensitive memory foam at a polyester shell. It is what I have started using to reduce my morning body pains.
For those with specific back pains I found several products targeting the region. For upper body back pains there's the Berkie Back Rest. It's made of memory foam polymers providing temperature sensitive visco-elastic polymers to alleviate g-fore pressures. It has an ergonomic contour base that absorbs and reallocates pressure evenly across the trunk and upper body. Perfect for support when sitting up to rest, read or watch T.V.. There is also the Avana Slant made to help reduce back pain while lying down or sleeping. It keeps the entire torso gently elevated providing the ideal sleep surface. It too is made from memory foam and the perfect product to use all night long. For those who have minor back pains I propose having a body pillow. I have used a body pillow for many years to support my sleep position. These products are designed to provide optimal support in all four basic sleep positions and provide a quality night sleep.
To relieve my morning pains I starting use the Berkie System and a body pillow. I arrange the pieces to provide back support and gently elevate my legs. No more cracking knees, aching back or sore throat. Don't let turning slow you down. There are numerous products available to help you locate the support you need and wake up feeling like 18 again.
