Best mattresses for bad backs and back pain

Online, you can find hundreds of articles and videos with countless diagrams and pictures trying to explain how your spine is adjusting when laying on different types of mattresses. So, to help you out and save you from hours of reading you probably won’t get back, we have compiled all the important information in to a few short points.

Around a third of your life is taken up by sleep, meaning you spend around a third of your life on a mattress. This makes it so important that you get the perfect one for you and your needs, especially if you’re experiencing back problems.

Mattresses should be supportive

There’s a myth that has been about for a while now which states that a hard or firm mattress is needed to support your back if you have pains – this is wrong. The British Chiropractic Association are among many professionals that say a supportive mattress is best.

The lighter you are, the softer the mattress.

 A general rule – if you don’t weigh much, it’s recommended you have a soft mattress, and the heavier you are, the firmer the mattress should be.

Try before you buy

You wouldn’t buy a car just because you like the sound of it, without having a test drive or even just going down to the dealership to take a look – the same should apply to the mattress. You need to make sure the mattress is perfect for you and your needs, and the best way to do this is to go to a bed shop and try lot of different ones out.
