I Suffer with Back Pain on a Memory Foam Mattress.

Martha writes:

Hi Pete,

I have a memory foam that I’ve hated since it was new, 10 years ago….a gift from my daughter, who meant well. Every store you go to, they push memory foam, which I already know I don’t want.

I suffer with back pain, and also have a touch of arthritis and fibromyalgia. I’m 5′ 4″ tall and weigh 180 lbs., which I know doesn’t help. I don’t understand how to shop for a mattress in the face of all the memory foam mattresses that I know don’t work for me.

Can you help me with that, and recommend something the WILL work?

Thanks, Martha  

Hi Martha,

Generally speaking, the human body requires some degree of firm support for the spine……and, some degree of surface softness to relax muscles, relieve blood flow and ease pressure points. The right balance of these factors will provide a good, deep night’s sleep. Using quality components to achieve this, will provide the value of many years of great sleep.

As we age, the discs in our backs wear, (along with many other things).😢After those discs wear, the vertebrae pinch the nerves that run along the spinal cord. To prevent this, and the pain it causes, we must keep our spines in their natural and proper alignment. THIS, keeps those nerves from getting pinched.

No all foam or air mattress provides the push back support necessary to maintain proper spinal alignment. Both of those types of mattresses allow you to sink too far, especially where we are heaviest…at the waist and hip. An innerspring mattress is what will keep the heavier parts of the body held up…not allowing you to sink.

Today’s Simmons Beautyrest provide what you need, but not long term. And as with most other of today’s mattresses, it’s the memory foam that prevents that good night’s sleep from lasting more than a couple/few months. There is a way around this. A Luxury Firm Beautyrest Mattress with an EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper turns a short lived mattress into a product that then has the value  of longevity. At your size, I recommend the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series Gibson Grove Luxury Firm Mattress.

This is not a bad choice for you, when you add arthritis and fibromyalgia to the equation. The topper that provides the Greatest degree of surface comfort, is the EverEden Pure, All Natural 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper.

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

The longest lasting choice is the Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush Mattress.

With this mattress, the coil count is higher and the coils are stronger. But more importantly, is the Natural Talalay Latex upholstery material…containing no memory foam.

Since this mattress doesn’t have memory foam to overcome, it doesn’t need a separate latex topper for the sake of durability. However, because the components of this mattress is of such high quality, it’s not as soft as you would expect an “ultra plush” would feel. This mattress is better for the sake of support and longevity, your arthritis and fibromyalgia may require a softer surface. If your arthritis and fibro are not advanced, this mattress is likely to be comfortable enough. However, those conditions tend to be progressive…worsening over the years. You can always add a soft latex topper in the future, if necessary.
Both of the mattresses, above, come with white glove delivery, which includes:Set-up of the new mattress, removal of all packaging materials, and removal of your old mattress.
A more affordable mattress, is the Wolf Old Fashioned Two Sided Brolynn Plush Mattress:

Wolf Double Sided Flippable Mattresses | The Mattress ExpertIntroducing the Duo-Comfort mattress, providing your customer with comfort options in one single mattress. The Duo-Comfort is a 11″ double-sided mattress that has a firm side and a plush side.themattressexpert.com

This mattress is more like the mattress you slept on at The LaQuinta Hotel. Like the ones above, it has an individually pocketed coil system, which is best for maintaining the spine’s natural alignment. It has a similar coil count to that lower end Beautyrest, you slept on….and similar upholstery material.

Shipping for this is UPS…shrink wrapped, rolled and boxed. You may need someone to help you bring it in. Also, you’ll have to dispose of your old mattress, yourself. 
The Latex Topper, also, ships via UPS.
Everything comes with free delivery, and there’s no sales tax.
Please, let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks, Pete
