Which Mattress Gives the Best Back Support?

Last updated on March 27th, 2024 at 05:12 pm

The ideal mattress for back support balances comfort and firmness, adapting to personal needs and back issues. Memory foam, latex, and hybrid mattresses provide contouring support and pressure relief, with the best choice depending on individual comfort and specific back conditions.

An unsupportive mattress that works against your body while sleeping is a common reason for back pain. It can cause your back to curve, cause strain, exacerbate existing issues, and leave you with aches and pains in the morning instead of feeling refreshed and ready for whatever the day has in store for you.

Sadly, sometimes, we take our backs for granted until they cause a problem, and we cannot do the activities we want. With that in mind, we will determine which mattress gives the best back support to help you make an informed choice.

When we sleep and change positions at night, we can put pressure on our bodies in different areas. If you are predominantly a back sleeper, the stress is usually concentrated on your lumbar region and can be increased by a mattress that is too soft.

If you prefer to sleep on your side, your hips and shoulders are likely to be the main pressure points, and if you sleep on your front, the primary pressure is expected to be on your lower back and neck area, especially if you have a soft mattress or a high pillow.

When choosing a mattress to support your back, it is advisable to look for an option that is firm enough to give you the support you require yet soft enough to keep you comfortable and help you to fall asleep.

Foam mattresses

An all-foam mattress is made of single or multiple layers of memory foam. This creates a deep soft mattress that can curve around the body’s contours.

Innerspring mattresses

This traditional style is made almost entirely from metal springs with a cover over the top. They can be affordable but do not contour around the body like the memory foam mattress.

Hybrid mattress

As the name suggests, the hybrid combines the best features of the foam mattress with the traditional spring mattress. To create a superior solution that is both supportive and luxuriously comfortable.

The bamboo hybrid mattress contains six unique layers of sleep perfection, including a layer of orthopaedic grade OrthoAlign Foam™ which works with your body and keeps your back supported and in alignment, whichever position you decide to sleep in.

Added comfort: The comforting base of the hybrid mattress is uniquely designed to absorb access movement and support your back, allowing you to sleep deeply even when your bed partner moves.

Zonal springs: Mattresses have been made using springs for many years, as they give support but can be uncomfortable. The springs used in the hybrid mattress are enclosed and isolated, creating a durable support system across the entire bed to ensure you can have a perfect night’s sleep.

Even weight distribution: Many mattresses distribute your weight unevenly. This can cause pressure points leading to aches and pains and disturbing sleep. To avoid pressure points and aid a night of luxuriously deep sleep. The unique layers of foam and springs are designed to work in unison with your body and spread your weight evenly as you sleep.

If your mattress is old, losing shape, or you wake up with aches and pains, it may be a sign that you need a new mattress. One specifically designed to give your back the support you need to have a restful night’s sleep.

A hybrid mattress which blends the best of modern and traditional technology to create an effective solution is an excellent choice for your sleep. The orthopaedic grade foam, and unique zones of pocket springs, support your back regardless of your sleeping position. Ensuring you stay fully supported from top to toe and experience the restful night’s sleep your body requires to stay healthy.
