Managing Back and Hip Pain Archive

Introduction on my journey selling memory foam mattresses and becoming pain free.

First, allow me to express my gratitude for visiting our website

I reflected on my reasons for starting Memory-Mattress more than a decade ago. Back then, I personally experienced how beneficial a memory foam mattress can be in terms of alleviating back pain and other aches and pains. So, I wanted as many people as possible in my community to experience the same benefits.

Looking back, I now realise that the mattress was a great start. But there were so many other factors that helped me get rid of pain.

So, I have decided to research different insights and tips from unbiased independent sources. I want to share insights and tips designed to help you get out of pain or avoid getting into pain.

The most common areas of the body that are afflicted with muscle and joint pain are our backs and hips. On my journey of recovering from exactly those kinds of pains, I have crossed paths with two local East Midlands companies providing amazing articles and pod casts. 

These companies are HipTrac UK and BackMentorMe. Just like Memory-Mattress, these two companies were founded by people who have themselves found ways to beat hip and back pain.

HipTrac UK founder, Mark Dunwell suffers from the same Femoro Acetabular Impingement, FAI, condition as I do (FAI is a condition where the ball and socket of the hip joint impinge on each other causing pain). In fact, we have both undergone the same surgery with the same surgeon!

Mark introduced me to BackMentorMe founder, Armand Brevig. He made a full recovery from a herniated disc, sciatica and debilitating back pain. There are many similarities between our paths of back pain recovery. Both journeys involved trial and error, as well as a personalised holistic approach.

So, the insights BackMentorMe and HipTrac UK will be sharing with you, are filtered through the lenses of people who actually KNOW what it means to suffer debilitating pain. Perspectives are practical and based on what actually works, rather than theory.

The content is not prescriptive, but designed to support you in your journey of discovering what works for you in your unique circumstance. In the first article about back pain, I share my personal story of trial and error on my journey to better back health.

Newsletters will be sent out fortnightly and will initially contain:

  • A message from me
  • One back pain related story
  • One hip pain related story

By buying a memory foam mattress  or looking to purchase one, you have already shown that you care about your own health and the health of your family. Please feel free to look at our past newsletters on pain in our archive below.

Happy reading!
