A Mattress for a herniated disc.

Leesa writes:

 I have lower back pain that stems from a herniated disc, and I sleep on my back (occasionally on my side). What type of mattress construction would you recommend (Simmons individually pocketed coils, or Sealy’s Posturepedic interlocked Innerspring)? Leesa


Hi Leesa,

The choice of coil system would depend on your weight and shape. Choosing can be more difficult for a female than a male, simply because of all the curves of a female body.

If you are average size and shape or smaller, it won’t matter very much, in terms of long lasting support.…as long as the mattress is reasonably firm. 

I would suggest listening to what your body tells you as you try them.

If you are heavier and/or curvier, it will matter a great deal..

Let’s say you are of average weight, but you are hippier than average or have a deeper than average arch in the small of your back. The individually pocketed coils of the Simmons Beautyrest will do a better job of accommodating those curves and in doing so, do a better job of maintaining your spine’s natural alignment.

If you are on the heavy side, an interlocking coil unit will be necessary to keep your discs from causing you pain.

Either way, the mattress needs to be firm. As a side sleeper, you’ll want to add a 2″ soft Talalay Latex topper for surface comfort and to relieve the pressure at the hip.

We carry two-sided mattresses that use the same coil unit as the Posturepedics. Made by Therapedic, they are the Cameo model. They are very well made and much better made than today’s Sealy Posturepedic. The Simmons Beautyrest World Class models are on sale through May 29th…Simmons FREE Boxspring sale.

I’m including those links and the link to the latex topper. Latex is extremely comfortable and durable. Our recommendations are designed to provide long lasting support, comfort and value.
