What is an extra firm mattress?
Extra firm mattresses are designed to provide a very firm sleeping surface. The goal of an extra firm mattress is to create a solid and stable surface that supports the body's weight evenly, without allowing it to sink in too deeply. At Sussex Beds, an extra firm mattress is rated a ‘5’ on our scale of firmness, with 1 being softest and 5 being the firmest.
Is an extra firm mattress good for back pain?
Extra firm mattresses are often recommended for people who suffer from back pain or other orthopedic issues, as they can help to keep the spine properly aligned during sleep.
For people with certain types of back pain, such as lower back pain, an extra firm mattress can help to provide better support during sleep, which can lead to reduced pain and discomfort.
If you suffer from chronic back pain, it’s a good idea to speak to a medical professional such as a doctor or chiropractor first to help decide what type of mattress will be best for your specific circumstances.
What is the best extra firm mattress?
The best extra firm mattress for you will depend on your personal preferences, however we suggest opting for a mattress with around 1,000 - 2,000 thick pocket springs with a high gauge, such as our 6’0″ Super King Deluxe Ortho Mattress. Orthopedic mattresses like this one are designed with firmness in mind to help align your spine.
