Mattresses for Back Pain

Allow our sleep professionals to help you determine the best mattress for back pain according to their respective pros and cons:

  • Memory Foam: These mattresses support the natural curvature of the spine while supporting the entire body and they are reasonably successful in reducing back pain. However, with time memory foam mattresses develop sagging issues and can become exceedingly soft exacerbating your back condition.
  • Inner Spring: This is one of the most common varieties of mattresses sold. They have known to benefit in the ‘initial stages’ but since structurally lack firmness, it doesn’t take long for it to stop being effective as they are more prone to becoming saggy and soft.
  • Latex : Latex Mattresses are fundamentally medium-firm, but don’t do a very satisfactory job of supporting the body. Several customers have voiced concerns about subsequent hardness of the mattress, which defeats the purpose.
  • Airbeds: Air beds stand out from the above varieties on several key factors. Air beds have proven to be more effective in mitigating and preventing back pain. Most other variety of mattresses post a certain amount of wear and tear, start to exhibit sagging, loss of support or uneven hardening; these concerns are rather unlikely to occur while using air beds. Air beds are supported by air pockets that are uniform head to toe and ensure a consistent support to the body while reducing any stress on pressure points. The fact that the firmness of the air beds can be adjusted according to the personal preferences of the user, make it an ideal investment for someone seeking a permanent remedy to their chronic condition.

These mattresses are designed with unique layers that serve a specific role in ensuring that your body is comfortable whenever you’re sleeping. On the inside, the air beds have various chambers that have consistent pressure levels. This is exactly what helps out in ensuring that the mattress provides a uniform head to toe support. Most, if not all of all of the reported back pain cases have been derived from sleeping on uneven mattresses. Uneven mattresses tend to stress the back area immensely and this will not only result in back pain but it can also cause long term back injuries.

Using any of the available Comfortaire adjustable beds will help to reduce the stress on certain pressure points on your back and this is what alleviates back pain. However, each of our bodies are different, so take into consideration all of your options when searching for the best bed for back pain.
