What is the best mattress for a bad back?

A bad night's sleep can affect your daily life. Here are some reasons a mattress might cause back pain and how to fix it:

1. Mattress Firmness

The firmness of your mattress is key to spinal alignment. A mattress that's too soft can leave you unsupported, while one that's too firm can cause discomfort. You need a balance of comfort and support to keep your spine aligned. Our team can help you find the right firmness to support your spine properly.

2. Sleep Position

Your sleeping position affects the type of mattress you need:

  • Side Sleepers: A slightly softer mattress allows your shoulder and arm to sink in, preventing misalignment. Browse our Soft & Medium and Medium Mattresses here.
  • Back or Stomach Sleepers: A firmer mattress supports your spine better, preventing it from arching unnaturally. Browse our Medium/Firm, Firm & Extra Firm Mattresses here.

3. Support Level

A mattress with a higher pocket spring count offers greater support. Pocket springs work independently to contour your body and relieve pressure points. Higher counts and multiple layers of springs provide enhanced support. Natural fillings or memory foam can also improve comfort and support.

4. Pillow Choice

The right pillow is crucial for neck and back pain relief:
