Severe Shoulder Pain on Memory Foam Mattress.

Chris writes:

Hello Pete,

I am having severe pain in my shoulders while I sleep.  We had an old mattress that started to cause me problems and so we bought a memory foam topper. It didn’t help.

Then, we went and purchased a memory foam mattress only to have the pain become worse.  I bought another mattress topper that was also gel memory foam but had really good reviews to cover mattresses that were too hard. It didn’t help. 

My shoulders hurt so badly, and also my upper back by my neck hurts as well.  I am so frustrated with what type of mattress to get or what to do to get something I can sleep on comfortably all night.

I have gone to a chiropractor that has not done anything.  I do get massages to get the knots out of my shoulders because they are so bad but that helps for a very short bit. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Chris 

Hi Chris,
Memory foam is what the industry is pushing. They do it because it doesn’t work and constantly needs replacing. Replaced by the consumer and not by the manufacturer. Memory foam is what is causing your pain. I hope you now understand that memory foam is the thing to avoid. 

Your mattress has memory foam on top, but the underside is a firm poly foam, which provides better support.
If you would like to make the most of what you already have, simply flip the mattress over and add a 2″ soft latex mattress topper.
Latex is the antithesis of memory foam…the best you can buy, compared to the worst you can buy. Latex foam rubber has been the best upholstery material available anywhere on the planet for nearly 100 years. There’s nothing new about it and its quality is well documented.
The feel it produces is one best described as “Floating”. It softens the surface to relieve pressure points and relax muscles for a beep night’s sleep.
You’ve tried what doesn’t work. Now, you can use what does.
The EverEden Pure, All Natural Soft Talalay Latex Topper is the one that provides the greatest degree of surface comfort. 2″ is all you need. Here is the link. You can order it online. Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.

And while the Vytex Dunlop comes in the same 2 choices of comfort levels, Dunlop is a more dense material and does not have as supple a feel as the Talalay Latex Toppers.themattressexpert.com

Most new mattresses use memory foam in them, which fails quickly. We often recommend using a latex topper with a new mattress. Doing so will keep it from losing it shape, (extending its intended life), as well as providing an unparalleled comfortable sleeping surface.
The latex toppers remain like new for years and you will be able to use it with whatever mattress you buy next.

Thanks, Pete
