Getting to know how to find the best mattresses for reducing back pain will help you make an informed decision about which type of mattress will work best for your particular wants and needs. At Innovative Sleep Solutions, we want to help you get the best night’s sleep possible. That is why we offer a range of different types of mattresses to choose from.

What to Look for in a Mattress for Reducing Back Pain?

Since there is no such thing as the perfect mattress for reducing back pain, it is important to choose a mattress that fits your natural sleeping posture. While most people tend to sleep in a combination of different styles—leading to a lot of motion in the bed—there are a few things to keep in mind that can help you select the best mattress for your needs:

  1. If you mostly sleep on your back, make sure to choose a mattress that is firm enough to support your lower back and soft enough to contour to your body. Mattresses that are too stiff tend to push against the spine and mattresses that are too soft do not offer enough support. Back sleepers should consider medium-firm mattresses.
  2. If you mostly sleep on your side, consider choosing a mattress with a slight softness to help cushion the shoulders and hips.
  3. If you mostly sleep on your stomach, make sure to choose a firmer mattress to keep you afloat.

What is the Best Type of Mattress for Relieving Lumbar Discomfort?

One of the best types of ergonomic mattresses for reducing back pain are memory foam mattresses because they can cradle the body’s curves while still being firm enough to support the back. Memory foam can come in a range of different densities, providing anything from a soft mattress to a medium-firm mattress.

Memory foam is the best type of mattress for keeping the spine in alignment and preventing back pain and discomfort by providing the necessary lumbar support. The ideal mattress for reducing back pain is, therefore, not too soft and not too hard, so that it can help minimize stress on the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.
