A Mattress to Relieve Back Surgery Pain for an Older Couple.

Susan writes:
Hi Pete,
I do not know what kind of mattress would b best for my husband and myself. 
My husband is 76 years old, 5′ 6″, 190 lbs. and I am 62, 5′ 4″, 128 lbs. 
My husband was active til he had back surgery five years a go where the spacers collapsed. 
Ever since he has had surgeries to correct the problem but until today we have a spine specialist redo his whole back from cervical to lumbar. 
I, on the other hand, am still active, but sometimes after running I get lower back pain.
What kind of a mattress do you recommend for both of us, focusing more so on my husband. Thank you so much. Susan
PS. I don’t care for mattresses that feel like we’re in quicksand. 
Hi Susan,
It’s memory foam that gives you the feel of “quicksand”.
Memory foam will, also, exacerbate any back pain you already have.
It’s imperative that you stay away from mattresses made with memory foam.
The key to relieving back pain is to maintain the spine’s natural alignment.
The best type of mattress, for that, is one with individually pocketed coils.
You can read more about that, here:
Back pain from mattress
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 …
I am older, heavier, and with lots of disc damage.
The mattress we use, at home, does a great job of relieving the pain.
It’s made by Natura of Canada. Their Greenspring line uses an individually pocketed coil unit.
What’s more, the coil count is very high and the the double tempered steel coils are very strong.
Even more important is the natural latex upholstery…the best upholstery material for the last 100 years.
Latex is comfortable and resilient…holding you up and not allowing you to sink.
The feeling of “floating” best describes how it feels.
There are 5 models in the line, with the Plush Eurotop being the most comfortable.
Due to the very high quality of the components, none are too soft.
Here is a link to those mattress.

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
