Thank you so much for your blog, Peter.
I am desperate. I was diagnosed with DDD over a year ago that is getting worse. Not long after the diagnosis, we bought a memory foam bed - that we replaced with another. First one was too soft; this one is too firm. We tried a topper but it was too mushy. My back is getting worse, I have hip bursitis on top of it. My physical therapist told me to stop coming because my DDD isn't getting any better. I'm 5'7" and 140 pounds; my husband is 5'10" and 210 pounds. I prefer sleeping on my side and can tolerate sleeping on my back if I wear a back support to sleep in, but at this point I'll stand on my head if I could not be in pain. My husband sleeps in all positions. What type of NEW mattress should we get? Thank you so much for your help. Claire
Your back has gotten worse because you opted for a memory foam mattress. You couldn't have made a worse choice. Waterbeds and air mattresses are just as bad for you....none, of which, provide proper spinal support
The Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini in luxury firm will support you firmly, yet contour to you...maintaining your spine's natural alignment. Keeping your spine aligned is key to having your situation improve. To keep your new mattress staying like new and to add comfort to the surface for your hip, add a 2" soft talalay latex topper to the mattress.
These two products, together, make up the most popular and effective sleep system on the market over the past several years. Here are links to both products. Delivery and set-up is free and there's no sales tax.
