Which Is the Best Mattress for Back Pain?

How to Work Out Which Mattress Will Support You During the Night

Around 8 in 10 Australians experience back pain at some point in their lives. One of the main causes of back pain is sleeping on the wrong mattress. If you wake up with a strained, tense feeling in your back, it’s highly likely you need a new mattress.

At Sleep Republic, we have refined our mattress over the years. We know that pocket springs provide the best support, and memory foam is supremely comfortable, so we’ve combined the two in one mattress. You can trial our mattress and, if you don’t like it, return it with no questions asked.

Is memory foam good for back pain?

Designed by NASA, memory foam is made from viscoelastic. It absorbs energy, moulds to the body, and evenly distributes body weight. It’s this last factor that makes it a particularly good solution for back pain. It’s also comfortable and soft. The only problem is, memory foam can retain heat.

That’s why we’ve used gel-infused memory foam in our mattress. Gel microbeads improve the mattress’s durability and ventilation, meaning you won’t get too hot at night.

Why are pocket springs so good?

Pocket spring systems provide the best support. They ensure minimal partner disturbance. However, some people find a spring mattress to be uncomfortable. That’s why we’ve paired our pocket spring systems with memory foam. Memory foam gives you comfort, while pocket springs provide the support.

What mattress firmness is best for back pain?

Mattress firmness is entirely dependent on your preferences, but most people need a medium-to-firm mattress for the best support. While a soft mattress can be deliriously luxurious, it doesn’t provide ongoing support. Our mattress is relatively firm, but with a cashmere knitted fabric topper, so it’s still comfortable.

What is the best mattress for side sleepers with back pain?

If you sleep on your side, and you suffer from back pain, you’ll need pressure relief for your shoulders, hips, and pelvis. Side sleepers need a soft mattress top. This lets your body sink in far enough to align the spine, and means that there’s not too much pressure on any one spot. At the same time, the mattress needs enough firmness, so your spine isn’t misaligned in the other direction.

It’s important to remember personal preference should always play a part in choosing which mattress is best for you. There is no one mattress type that is best for every person who suffers from back pain, and even chiropractors say that any mattress which helps you sleep without pain or stiffness is the best.

Comfort layers matter

The middle padding is as important as the mattress foundation. We know if a mattress isn’t comfortable, no amount of support is going to help. That’s why we’ve made our mattress with comfort layers of natural latex, cotton, and cashmere, to provide the best comfort and support. Starting from a 5 Zone Pocket Spring foundation, we’ve built our mattress up with:

  • 3D spacer fabric for ventilation
  • Dynamic edge support so you won’t roll off your mattress during the night
  • Natural latex for airflow and regulating body temperature
  • Gel-infused memory foam to provide pressure relief
  • Cashmere knitted fabric for the ultimate softness
