Ruptured Cervical Discs Pain Made Worse on a CertiPur Foam Mattress.

Ellen writes:
Hi Pete,
I purchased a Certipur polyurethane mattress 6 mos. ago. 
I have C-6 & C-7 cervical discs ruptured. Had a steroid shot in neck 3 weeks ago and felt wonderful. 
I had been sleeping on my 15 year old mattress which is now broken down on one side. I slept on that mattress. 
This Certipur has started giving me tremendous pain, and I am sweating all night and wake up with head pains. 
My husband had lower back surgery 5 years ago for disc that ruptured in not out.
Here’s the rub. The Certipur is more than likely the problem. 
Is there a thick pillowtop to add to it or would I just be throwing more money on top of bad. 
What are your thoughts on this mattress.
Thank you, Ellen
Hi Ellen,
Ruptured discs are nothing to fool around with.
An all foam mattress, (even all latex, which is the best of the foams), rarely works for back problems stemming from disc issues.
A comfortable sleeping surface on top of good firm innerspring support works best.
Beds today are not made as well as they had been 15 years ago.
They are, for the most part, one sided and use plenty of memory foam…all designed to be disposable, made to be replaced frequently.

Your mattress must have memory foam on top. Sleeping hot and headache are typical symptoms produced by memory foam.

I have plenty of disc related problems, myself. Let me refer you to the mattress we use at home….pain free.

It’s made by Natura of Canada. Their Greenspring mattresses use an individually pocketed coil unit.

The coils are made of double tempered steel and the coil count is very high…over 1000 in queen.

The upholstery is natural Talalay Latex, which is extremely comfortable and resilient. And, it sleeps cool.

There is NO Memory Foam in these mattresses.

Of the 5 models, the Plush Eurotop is the most comfortable.

Natura Greenspring Liberty Eurotop Latex Hybrid Mattress

Greenspring Liberty Plush Euro Top. Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Plush Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together with a foam encased coil unit to gratify your hunger for luxury, affordability and eco-integrity.

White Glove Delivery is Free and there’s NO Sales Tax.

Delivery time is approx. 4 weeks.

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.
