DDD- Degenerative Disc Disease on a Latex Mattress.

Angel writes:
Hi Pete,
I am returning a S&F latex mattress which felt lovely at first, but I find it doesn’t work well with my degenerative disc problems.
The sales people at the store told me it would be perfect for my back.
Frankly, I don’t think they know what they’re talking about.
In retrospect, I think they only cared about making a sale.
I made a stink about getting bad advice, with the owner, so I’m getting a refund.
After reading some of your posts, I believe you know your business and that I can rely on you for good advice.
Both, my husband and I are of average height and weight.
What do you suggest?
Thanks, Angel
Hi Angel,
Well, it looks like you wasted no time in figuring out what went wrong.
You’re absolutely right about everything.
Disc related back problems require the push back support provided by an innerspring mattress.
You can read all about that in this write-up.
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 …

The best type would be a pre-compressed individually pocketed coil unit, where each coil moves independently from the others.

This type of coil system contours to the shape of your spine and maintains the natural alignment

of your spine.
Latex does this, also, and is perfect for muscle strain….very comfy and long lasting.
But, latex does not have the push back support that the worn discs require.
BTW, your S&F mattress isn’t all latex. In fact, it’s made of synthetic latex and topped with memory foam….now that Tempurpedic owns S&F….and Sealy, too.
Memory foam is the absolute worst upholstery material ever invented.
The pocketed coil unit was made famous by Simmons. Their Beautyrest mattresses have had this coil system since the 1920s.
The problem, today, is that they are upholstered with memory foam…and do not hold up well.
The best we’ve found…and tested at home…is the Natura of Canada Greenspring.
Compared to the Simmons Beautyrest, The Greenspring mattresses have more and stronger coils.
Also, the upholstery is Natural Talalay Latex…providing the right support, comfort and longevity.
Their Plush EuroTop is the most comfortable of the 5 models in that line.

Greenspring Liberty Plush Euro Top. Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Plush Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together …
I suggest using a waterproof mattress protector with every mattress.
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will greatly extend the life and loft of the upholstery materials inside. Ours sleep cool and make NO Noise.
