Sleep Number Bed Makes My Back Pain Worse. Which Mattress?

Hi Pete,

I am an old broken bodybuilder (47, 5’8”, 215lbs) with spondylolisthesis (bad low back).  

Because of my back pain, I have been forced to become a side sleeper, which seems to now be the cause of chronic shoulder pain.  

I have been sleeping on a sleep number bed for 2 years, and it seems to be causing more harm than good.

Could you please give recommendations to which mattress will improve comfort, reduce pain, and help me get some sleep?

Your input is greatly appreciated, Gary

Hi Gary,

An air mattress, like a waterbed, offers no upward support…but relies solely on displacement of your weight for support. This is not adequate support for anyone…least of all, a large person with back problems….contrary to what you were told at the time of purchase.

Having been a bodybuilder, you have made side sleeping more of a challenge. The proper mattress, with the proper support, will allow you to sleep on your back.

My wife and I are large people, and I have lots of disc related damage to my back.

Here’s a link to The Natura of Canada Greenspring line of mattresses., which will provide you with the proper support.There are 4 choices of comfort. We sleep on the Ultra Plush. https://themattressexpert.com/natura-greenspring-pocketed-coil-mattresses/
