Sealy Posturepedic Mattress causing back pain.

Jamie writes:
Hi Pete,
I recently came across your blog on-line. What a life saver! 
I am still a little confused so I am hoping you can help.
We have a Sealy Posturepedic Cushion Firm mattress that we purchased about a year ago from a “big box” mattress store for around $1500. 
My husbands back has slowly been getting worse since we purchased this mattress. 
He felt much better after we stayed in a hotel for a week. 
The hotel Ivy had a Sealy Posturepedic Palatial Crest Cushion Firm Pillowtop, which of course,  you cannot purchase anymore….

I was ready to buy from a store, because I am desperate to help my husband. 
Then, I came across your blog, warning about the new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses having memory foam, now that they are owned by Tempurpedic.
Is this why our 1 year old Sealy didn’t work? What are your thoughts?\
One other consideration: We do not have a box spring since we have a platform bed.
Does that help with back issues?
Thanks, Jamie
Hi Jamie,
Thanks for taking the time to read the blog posts. You now have a better grasp of the situation.
It is, in fact, the memory foam that has caused your mattress to create your husband’s back pain.
I’m sure he has disc problems. The memory foam brought them to light.
Platform beds usually provide more than adequate support for a mattress.
If yours has a center beam that supports the cross slats, and that bean has a couple of legs that hit the floor, as most do, there is no reason to think that it is the cause of your husband’s back pain. Be sure to check all that. You can add those things if they aren’t there now.
A mattress that is most like that old Sealy Posturepedic hotel mattress, is an old fashioned, two sided mattress that we carry…The Tulah Luxury Firm….with NO Memory Foam.
Wolf Tulah Two-sided Mattress

Old Fashioned made Two Sided Mattress that you can flip. Strong coil unit and NO Memory Foam. Durable for Plus Sized People. Works with Adjustable Bed Bases.
This mattress will provide excellent support for your husband’s back.
For that nice plush surface feel, which will not negate the underlying firm support, add an EverEden Pure, All Natural 2″ Soft Talalay Latex topper.

Soften the surface of a too firm mattress. Insulate yourself from the memory foam in your mattress to Sleep Cool. Extend the comfort life of your mattress.
The latex is extremely comfortable and much longer lasting than a sewn on pillowtop would be.

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.

Thanks, Pete
