Best Mattress for Back Pain

We are not powerless against back pain. It can be alleviated or even prevented with one simple thing: how we sleep. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. Some aches can be aggravated or even caused by how we position our bodies during slumber. How and on what we sleep can go a long way toward preventing or eliminating back pain completely.

Back pain is one of the most common complaints that people bring to their doctors. About 80 percent of adults report experiencing low back pain at some point in their lives. According to National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, a 1990 study ranked low back pain as sixth among the causes contributing to poor health and mortality. Two decades later, it moved to third place. Studies point to a relationship between back pain and sleep. The Sleep in America poll — a national, random-sample survey of 1029 noninstitutionalized adults weighted to be nationally representative that was conducted by the National Sleep Foundation—found that 21 percent of Americans experience chronic pain and that 36 percent report having had acute pain in the week preceding the poll.

Ironman Oceanside 70.3 – 2016

What a great event at Ironman Oceanside 70.3 this past weekend (April 2nd 2016)! It was awesome to race with our Optimum Athletes: Allan Lindo and Chema “Jose”Rodriguez.

In this early season, we try to capitalize on working on a good build and fitness, however injuries sometime play a role in training. It has been challenging for this two athletes to balance work, family, training and trying to be healthy as possible come race day. But with proper training and recovery treatment, anything is possible. Congratulations on getting it done guys! I’m proud to work with you!
