Rheumatism: what is it and how can you get in trouble?

If you have rheumatism, you know that “rheumatism” is a collective name for more than a hundred different chronic diseases of the muscles, joints, and tendons: from rheumatoid arthritis to hypermobility and myositis.

Your symptoms can be very different and depend on which type of rheumatism you suffer from. But in all forms of rheumatism, there is a high risk that you will have particularly severe discomfort caused by pain and stiffness in the joints and muscles. Inflammation, overload and/or wear are usually the causes of this. It is therefore important that your body gets enough rest. Then your muscles and joints have time to recover. On a good mattress, you can rest best.

Which is the best mattress for rheumatic diseases?

What is a tempurpedic mattressand can it help with rheumatism? That is hard to say. But for rheumatic diseases, it is particularly important that the mattress supports your body well. Therefore, it can certainly not hurt to analyze your complaints, preferred sleep, and wishes together with an occupational therapist. Find out which mattress suits you best. For example, a memory foam mattress can be good for you. This mattress adapts to your body and supports it exactly in the right places.

You can also try a cold foam mattress once. Or a combination of these two mattress types: a mattress made of cold foam with a top layer of memory foam. Because cold foam has the positive qualities that it always feels pleasantly cool, offers good support and gives a pleasant back pressure when you lie on it. But have you ever thought about a waterbed? A waterbed combines all the advantages of cold and memory foam with other extras.
