What Mattress for my Scoliosis?‏

Marshall writes:

Pete – let me first say I could not be more impressed with you obviously well-informed answers to people’s questions.  I submitted the following on your form a few hours ago, and have not received a reply.  Of course it’s fine if I don”t hear back until you have whatever time you need:
 I have purchased my 2nd Tempurpedic-Cloud this time last March. Last week my Thoracic scoliosis was determined to be over 80 degrees. 2 years ago it was 47 degrees, only 2 degrees more than 10 years before that. Began requiring a full time cane use last summer and continually worsening pain to extreme level easily explained by change in spine curvature.  I already had extreme sleep apnea requiring a 17 pressure on my c-pap. I flipped my Cloud last night, slept ok and awoke with a little less pain and a little more improved walking ability. I gather from other QA that I should have a firm innerspring mattress with a natural latex topper to provide comfort. I am alarmed but certainly unsure that a mattress could cause such a dramatic and miserable change.Your opinion on this would be appreciated and respected, as well as your specific recommendation of your products for me.  I would guess a maximum comfort topper would be best, and a pillow relating to the topper/mattress -I sleep on my back, but I do not like the shaved memory foam by Tempurpedic perhaps because it does not match the lower density of the cloud top.  Can you help?  And is your mattress superior to Saatva’s since thrie price is less, but do not offer a latex topper.  Everything I have read on your sight is astoundingly informed and makes so much sense.
Hi Marshall,
While latex is far superior to memory foam, an all foam mattress…even all latex, is a mistake for someone with your condition.
A firm innerspring is called for here. Using a latex topper with it will reduce pressure points and relax muscles, for a deeper night’s sleep. Two inches of soft, medium or Dunlop latex will do the job. Three inches will be too much depth of softness.
We carry a very well made two sided mattress from Therapedic that is made to my specifications. The model is call the Cameo firm.
Here are links to that mattress and to the latex toppers.
