March 17, 2016 We all agree that an orthopedic mattress is indicated as it provides the proper support for our back, keeping our body aligned and reducing pressure points. Overall this is a highly recommended option for anyone who has symptoms of back pain in the morning or generally requires an orthopedic mattress. Our research shows that people with back problems often tend to be highly satisfied with a memory foam mattress Infact studies show that 20% of people who own one experience some sort of joint pain relief. Going back to the point of firm vs. soft, one of the most important features to look out for when choosing the best mattress for back pain is deciding the density of the foam. The springs give body to the mattress while the memory foam moulds to fit your body shape. There are other orthopedic mattresses which offer full body support, such as the pocket sprung (also known as pocketed coil). In our opinion a pocket sprung can be good for orthopedic support and pain treatment, however these cannot rival the superiority of memory foam or latex.
