    Your Back Pain Can Teach You About the Best Mattress

    Low back pain: Patients with lower back pain often prefer a firmer mattress. A firm bed prevents the spine from sinking into the mattress which can irritate the facet joints in the spine. Higher-end luxury beds can provide plenty of support along with comfortable padding, while lower-end discounted beds can provide the firmness, but with less comfort. You can always make a firm mattress a little softer by putting something on top of it, but you can’t make a soft mattress firmer.

I feel your pain when you describe the dull ache in the small of your back, the sharp pain in your hip when you bend over or twist. I’ve felt the sharp stabbing pain of a rib out of place. Neck pain, low back pain, and shoulder impingement pain. I’ve had all of that...
