Therapedic Two-sided mattress for a large man with a ruptured disc.‏

Louisa writes:

My husband has a ruptured disk but the symptoms are maintainable. We are both large, overweight, and have had a bad air mattress (Nautilus) for the past 2 years, and we don’t get a good nights sleep and wake feeling horrible. We like a firm style, king sized. What would you recommend? Does latex work, even with a ruptured disk? 
Thanks, Louisa

Hi Louisa,
Given the severity of the disc problem and the extra weight he carries, latex would not be the type of mattress I would gamble on. In fact, any all foam mattress would likely be a painful mistake.
There are no ‘good’ air mattresses, as they do not provide proper, upward support for anyone’s spine…a pure disaster for anyone already suffering with a bad back. Air, like water beds, rely on displacement. The hammock type of support you get from it is just flat out bad for you.
You really need to go with an interlocked coil unit for the right support for him. You need to avoid the things that wear quickly, specifically, pillowtops and memory foam.
I’m including a link to our line of two-sided flippable Therapedic mattresses. Every one of them will work for you. Even the Cameo plush, (which is the most comfortable of them), is not too soft.
If you happen to be extremely overweight, opt for one of the Medi-Coil models. They are specifically designed for 350 lbs. +, with my heaviest customers topping 500 lbs.
