Best Mattresses For People With Back Pain

A good mattress is one that will give you both support and comfort. If your mattress is not providing you with the right support and comfort, your back is going to suffer. Let’s avoid that by making sure you get the mattress you need! Some things to consider prior to purchasing a mattress are the following:

1. A mattress with the correct support – what does this even mean?

“Correct support” means your entire body is supported while your spine is kept in a neutral position – no matter the position you’re sleeping in. Experts recommend paying attention to your pressure points when shopping for a new mattress because they are the heaviest parts of your body.

2. Get your $’s worth

Some things are worth splurging on and mattresses are one of them! Because your mattress is prone to messing up your back, you should worry less about the price and more about your back health. If you really think about it, your mattress will last you about 8-10 years. Therefore, if you do the math, and spend about $1000-3000 on a mattress, that’s cents a day for the next 8-10 years of a healthy back. It’s worth it!

3. Try before buying

I cannot stress this one enough! I don’t care how comfortable the mattress looks in the photo, you must go and see it in person. It’s the only way to get a feel for it and know if it’s your best option. And don’t pick the first one you try… try plenty and sit in each mattress for about 5 minutes to know if that mattress provides you with the appropriate comfort and support.

4. Know your preferences

Do you have a mattress preference? Do you sleep with someone who moves a lot and would prefer to not be disturbed by their movements? Do you drink or eat on your bed and want a mattress that prevents glasses from tipping over? Think about your everyday bed time routines, what you like about your current mattress, what you think it’s missing, etc.

5. Speak to a specialist

These people are literally here to make your life easier. Beyond that, mattresses are their specialties, so speak to them! Ask them your questions, tell them your wants and needs, break it down for them. This way, they’ll be able to give you their professional advice and at the very least, help you narrow down your search.
