Back and Hip Pain on a Nursing Home Air Mattress.

Joe writes:
Hi Pete,
I have a friend in a nursing home, who is in a lot of pain.
I suspect it’s because of the mattress he’s sleeping on.
It’s an air mattress.
Besides having back problems, he’s also lost some muscle mass in his hip and buttocks, which is causing pain in those areas.
He’s not very large, only about 150 lbs.
I’m curious if your latex topper is will be enough to compensate for the air mattress.
Thanks, Joe
Hi Joe,
A mattress that provides firm support is needed for disc related back problems.
This link will give you and the staff at the nursing home a full explanation.
The absolute worst material for a bad back and the pain associated with it, is Memory Foam. Memory foam is a highly deceptive product…felling one way on the …
Now, this can be achieved in two parts or in one mattress.
The key in both is that the mattress have an individually pocketed coil unit.
This type of coils system provides push back support against the spine…support that contours to the natural shape of the spine and maintains it’s natural alignment.
This keeps nerves from being pinched, which causes pain.
Your friend also has surface issues. With loss of muscle mass, the surface of the body requires softness. There are lots of ways to achieve this, but most don’t last very long.
All natural latex has been the best, most comfortable, and longest lasting surface comfort.
This first link is to a mattress that has all of that. It is one sided and can’t be flipped.
But, being reasonably light in weight, a two sided mattress isn’t necessary.
On this link is the Adrian and Adara models.
They are the same, with the Adara being finished in all natural materials, for the small difference in price. Normally, that’s the one I would recommend…bit for your friend, the Adrian is fine.
All Natural Cotton Cover. All Natural Wool backing as a natural fire retardant. Upholstered with All Natural Latex. All Natural Wool insulator pad for support.
The other uses the same coil unit, but isn’t upholstered with soft latex.
By the time you add a latex topper to it, you’ll be spending more than is necessary.
Here are links to the Tulah Luxury Firm and the EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex toppers.
When you add them up, you’ll see the difference in price, compared to the one above.
