mattress for a bad back

Looking for a mattress that will help a bad back or even prevent a bad back, but what is the best type of mattress for a bad back?

A bad back is the worst kind of pain, it affects everything you do from sitting, standing, exercise and even getting a good night’s sleep. If you’ve been suffering all day long from a bad back you look forward to the comfort you get from going to bed and sleep is very important for helping your back heal, especially if this is from an injury. However, a bad mattress can make a bad back even worse, in some cases even cause a bad back if you are sleeping regularly in a bad position.

If you are going to invest in a bespoke bed then you really need to pick the right mattress as well. Taller people can sometimes get back problems just like everyone else and a good longer mattress will help you get a good night’s sleep and prevent back aches.

What type of mattress is best for a bad back?

You can’t recommend just one mattress that will be good for all people and all backaches, depending on your bad back or injury different solutions may be more suitable and of course, personal preference and sleeping position is also a consideration for a mattress recommendation.

Typically you need your mattress to have a lot of support, firm enough to support areas of your body but still have some give as a super firm mattress will not contour to your body and when sleeping on your side your spine will not be comfortable.

Memory foam mattresses for a bad back

A popular mattress for taller people with bad backs or back injuries is the memory foam mattress, this is a great mattress for moulding to your body for ultimate comfort. Our memory foam mattresses have 1 inch of memory foam on top of a high-quality sprung mattress, this is to ensure the memory foam doesn’t sink too much creating a ‘pit’ that will cause more damage over time. The spring mattress creates a firm base to support your back whilst the memory foam allows for shaping and comfort.
